  1. WORKSHOP: FINDING TRAFFIC SOLUTIONS FOR GURGAON Setting Vision for Sustainable and Integrated Transport Systems AmitBhatt Head – Urban Transport EMBARQ India November 21, 2012

  2. Urban population in India is expected to double in a 30 year period Projected Source: O.P. Agarwal and S. Zimmerman “Towards Sustainable Mobility in Urban India”, Presented in the Annual TRB Meeting, Washington D.C. January 2008

  3. and also… • Number of vehicles increases faster than population following economic development Slides developed originally by Dario Hidalgo Source: Lee Schipper, University of California at Berkeley, 2009

  4. However, Financial, institutional, physical resources are constrained

  5. What to do? Alternative 1: Capital intensive solutions • Give greater capacity to the road network to relieve congestion • Build massive rail transport systems (light rail- metro) Alternative 2: Change paradigms Give priority to non motorised transport and bus-based public transport Restrict indiscriminate automobile use

  6. Capital & Land intensive solutions: highways

  7. Infrastructure solutions lead to greater automobile dependence Automobile dependence and Regional Economy US Cities Regional GDP per person (USD 1990) Automobile Use (Km/year per person) Source: INDICATORS OF TRANSPORT EFFICIENCY IN 37 GLOBAL CITIES, Jeff Kenworthy, Felix Laube, Peter Newman and Paul Barter, World Bank, 1997

  8. Automobile dependent cities have more accidents Cities of United States have 66% more deaths in traffic accidents per person than peer cities in Europe and Asia, and 123% more than Toronto Road Safety US Cities Fatalities in Road Accidents per 100,000 population (1990) Automobile Use (Km/year per person) Source: INDICATORS OF TRANSPORT EFFICIENCY IN 37 GLOBAL CITIES, Jeff Kenworthy, Felix Laube, Peter Newman and Paul Barter, World Bank, 1997

  9. Automobile dependent cities have low densities (occupy large extensions) Persons/Hectare (1995) Automobile Use (Km/year per person 1995)

  10. Alternative Solutions for Sustainable Urban Transport Pedestrian and Bicycles Public Transportation Transit Oriented Development Disincentives to Car Use Cleaner and Cooler Fuels and Vehicles http://www.nyc.gov/html/dot/images/sidewalks/ps_rendering01.JPG

  11. Opportunity is Biggest – Right Now Ahmedabad

  12. Multi Modal Connectivity • Public Transport • Sub Urban Connection • NMT • Intermodal Modal Connectivity • Feeders • Fare Integration • Station access and area development • Integrating Landuse with Transport • Street Design and Development • Landuse zoning and development Regulation • Station access and Strategies and priorities • Disincentive to Car Use • Parking • City Led Travel Demand Management • Travel Demand Management for Business

  13. EMBARQ’s mission is to catalyze and help implement environmentally and financially sustainable transport solutions to improve quality of life in cities • Centers work together with local transport authorities to reduce pollution, improve public health, and create safe, accessible and attractive urban public spaces.
