Issues
Narrow Right of ways at places
(upto 10-12m)
Location of Heritage Gates
On street vending and informal
market places

Issues

Exploring options for accessing


inner city
Option 1 : Elevated
Corridor

PRO(s):
Can respond to RoW constraints upto 18 m
CON(s):
Accessibility to BRT Stations
Increased cost of infrastructure
Visually unappealing

Exploring options for accessing


inner city
Option 2 : Pedestrian + Bus
only corridor

Example:Kankaria, Ahmedabad

PRO(s):

Exploring
spaces

Safe and secure pedestrian infrastructure


CON(s):
Acceptance of people
Can only be adopted to stretches with limited public property access

Option 4 : mini BRT

Accessing the core is critical

Accessing core areas of cities with all bus systems, there are limitation of w

Most part of the city centre is having road widths ranging from 16-24 mete

Consideration of mini systems as an alternative for


accessing core areas
