Qualitative and Quantitative Risk Assessment Models for Al Khalidiya Road

Project Overview

Most of the students and employees of Prince Mohamad Bin Fahd University (PMU) use Al-Khalidiya road due to two reasons, first it is connecting the Highway to the university, and it second thing the road is shorter than Al-Aziziya road. However, this road is considered very risky by its users. “69 deaths happened in this dangerous road and most of them are students, Al-Yaum newspaper (2015)”. Therefore, losing young people life is an issue worth to study in details, in able to find solutions for stopping death risk. The current project is conducting a new prospective management tools to help; (1) the decision makers and municipal engineers to manage Al-Khalidiya road, (2) the road users by alerting them about the level of risk. Two approach models, qualitative and quantitative, are developed to address the risk level of the road. The level of the work and amount of information about the road is the main obstacle for the project to be done within the limited time. Data is collected from municipalities, a questionnaire survey, scientific journal papers to achieve the project objectives.

Project Objectives

  1. Identify risk factors of Al Khalidiya Road.
  2. Perform a qualitative risk model (QLRM) for the road users. The model output will be risk category for each risk factor; for example, “Red” for “Risk X”, “Orange” for “Risk Y”, and “Yellow” for “Risk Z”.
  3. Cary out a quantitative risk model (QNRM) for decision makers and municipal engineers, who are responsible for the road operations, to consider required plans accordingly to mitigate the current and future risk.
  4. Recommend suitable action plans for the future graduation projects.
