UndiTraffic data collaboration with The Edge

#KhorReports is participating in a #TrafficData study with @The Edge Markets!!

Much to the surprise of Malaysian voters, polling day will take place on Wednesday (May 9). . Disgruntled voters complain that it will be “Hari Raya and Chinese New Year rolled into one,” expecting road traffic snarl ups. Might that be true?

We are working with The Edge Malaysia to set up the Undi Traffic for the 14th general election (GE14) to examine how traffic builds up in Peninsular Malaysia. This review of journey times from the #Google Traffic Layer, will come online in just a few days, starting Monday, May 7, 2018.

A Malaysia General Election exodus? Selected indicators

Malaysia's 13th General Election in 2013 points to a bifurcated Malaysia socio-political landscape. Very simply, it is ‘urban for Pakatan’ (the opposition coalition) and ‘rural for UMNO-BN’ (the long-ruling coalition).

The recent announcement of an unprecedented  midweek polling day, Wednesday 9th May 2018 for the 14th General Election is contentious. The worry in the political contest is that outstation voters are affected. They work in the bigger urban areas (the Klang Valley, Johor Bahru, Penang and Singapore) and they tend to be opposition supporters. These voters need to travel some distance intra or inter-state or further including from Peninsular to East Malaysia to return home to vote.

Khor Reports' data map below shows selected indicators from PLUS and Waze for festive season travel hot spots. In addition, we provide some popular estimates for key outstation voter and resident segments. We expect to update and upgrade this map.
