ABSTRACT

This paper performed studies on a guide for an environmental assessment necessary toselect railroad route optimally, and presented techniques for an environmental friendly route selectionusing AHP(Analytical Hierarchy Process) as an objective method. The AHP is an approach to decisionmaking that involves multiple choice criteria into a hierarchy and assessing the relative importance ofeach criterion, and determining an overall ranking of the alternatives. For the purpose of this study,we established the weight and the order of major environmental assessment items based on the surveyof experts. The results of the weight by AHP were in order of Fauna & Flora, Topography & Geology,Nature Environmental Assets, Noise & Vibration, Water Quality, Landscape and Air Quality indicating natural environment should be in priority. To develop the more efficient environmentalfriendly route selection systems, it is necessary to consider economical, technical, and social aspects inaddition to environmental consideration.
