-June 2011: Professor Khandker Nurul Habib jointly with Professor Amer Shalaby is awarded funding for a research project on the holiest place of the Muslim worlds; the Holly Makkah City. The project is sponsored by the Hajj Research Institute of Makkah. The project is on “Developing Makkah Travel Demand Model”. Makkah is like no other city, not only because of its special status in the Muslim the world but also due to its unique spatiotemporal, socioeconomic and demographic characteristics. Makkah is set to have a major facelift over the next decade or two, with major urban development and transportation infrastructure projects currently at various stages of planning. This research aims at developing a conceptual framework for a travel demand model specific to the Makkah City. It will focus on developing the data collection program and associated travel survey instruments required to estimate and continuously update the travel demand models. The goal is to develop a state-of-the-art travel demands model for the Makkah. The model system will support the analytical assessment of urban development and transportation projects in future.
