Last Mile Pedestrian Network
A proposal for the development of safe and efficient pedestrian networks
radiating from public transport hubs for the city of Bangalore.

Bangalore Pedestrian Network

Focused on faster and more efficient mobility of vehicles across the city. Constantly evolving and developing.

Developed to provide high speed low cost public transport from peripheries to city center. Seen as the solution to Bangalore’s congestion problems.

Exisiting networks are encroached upon by parked vehicles and moving traffic. Most networks are limited to being intra-neighbourhood.

What?

To make Bengaluru accessible to pedestrians. To design the development of safe and comfortable last mile connectivity from public transport hubs to existing residential and commercial settlements.

Why?

To reduce the dependency on vehicles for short distance commutes. • To make public transport the most convienient method of long distance commute for all classes

Byappanhalli Context | BTP via SG Palya

Why we have chosen to develop this route first.

Serves two high density vehicular and pedestrian generators, SG Palya and Bagmane Tech Park.

It will connect two parallel bus routes and an estimated 1,00,000 people to public transport.

This route can be extended further to areas likes Bairasandra and Cauvery Colony.

The land required for the implementa- tion of the current design involves few organizations and not many individuals, potentially making the process easier.

Vision

We hope to develop the selected stretch as a prototype.

We expect it to have a big impact on the reduction of vehicular congestion while improving the quality of life and the livability of the neighbourhood.

One day, we hope it will be possible to go from Whitefield to Malleshwaram by walk without a single person vehicle conflict, through a network of parks, paths and public spaces.
