This study focused on the investigating of the improving measure of marine traffic system around Pyung-Taek Pilotage area. First, we analyzed the marine traffic environment on the study area based on the expert point of view of pilot and shipmasters. Then suggested the following countermeasures to improve the traffic safety according to the analytic results of the hazardous items on the Jangan-Seo and Ippa pilot embarking/disembarking area. We suggested to establish Mokdeok-do TSS and TSS in Ando area, and to adjust the width of Jangan-seo TSS to improve the congestion on the TSSs. Also suggest to put lightbuoys along the outer limit of the TSS. In addition, recommend to establish traffic safety specific area on the Jangan-seo/Ippa-do water, and to suggest expand the anchorage area of Ippa and Jangan-seo anchorage. It is anticipated to improve the traffic safety on the study area through the marine traffic system improvements.
