Why a Smart City needs smart transport solutions?
Recently the Delhi government announced that the majority of the road space in Delhi is taken up by cars which constitute only around 1.5% of the total road users. To deal with the issue they announced the redesigning of over 1200 km of roads in the capital at a cost of around INR 5,000 crore. These roads would be designed to promote public transport, cycling and making streets friendly for pedestrians and physically- challenged people. Some of the smart solutions they plan to implement include keeping certain roads only for public transport, increasing the frequency of public buses, installing lifts with glass panel, solar powered street lights, toilet blocks and rain water harvesting system. A cluster scheme for buses would be introduced to meet shortage of buses in the capital. An odd even scheme will be introduced in Delhi from January 1st 2016 for a period of fifteen days to control the ever rising pollution levels there.
