From the strategic corridor to improve high-speed connectivity with the rebuilding historic ring rail network, the Delhi 2041 master plan design imagines the future of mobility in a city driven by intelligent technology that will encourage public transportation. Draft MPD 2041 is available on the Delhi Development Authority website, and general advice and objections have been invited, said a senior official DDA on Wednesday.
The draft illustrates that the Delhi Public Transport System requires further integration at the institutional, spatial, and system levels to provide a smooth travel experience to passengers.
“Institutional integration can be activated by a greater mandate, efforts to achieve spatial integration (land use integration and transportation, multi-capital integration, last military connectivity, among others) and system integration (bus rationalization, intelligent transportation system, including command and The Control Center for better traffic management) has begun, but it needs to be strengthened, “he said.
The draft also said that urban transportation efficiency is very dependent on “smooth integration” between various road-based road-based public transportation (IPT) and cycling systems.
“Comprehensive Mobility Plan (CMP) will be prepared for Delhi to achieve systemic integration at all levels and urban transport modes. CMP must be aligned with the provisions of MPD 2041 and will provide a detailed road map to achieve the transformative agenda of ” move towards low carbon mobility ‘ ‘, “he said.
Master’s plan design will put a road map for the next 20 years, said to increase high-speed connectivity. To and from important regional goals and decongest traffic in the city (mainly due to regional traffic). Following “strategic transportation corridors” identified for Implemented in the period of this plan. He said the strategic link must be developed as a “transit priority corridor” to facilitate passenger movements and shipping.
The three links were proposed as part of the corridors – the northern extension of the UER (Urban Extension Road) II, the expansion of South UER II, and Bahadurgarh to Obwasan, the plan. Among the other critical elements of the segment associated with transportation is the rebuilding historic ring rail tissue in Delhi, which has been lying less utilized for decades.
“Ring Rail is Delhi’s inheritance infrastructure and it plays an important role in transportation Right, “said the design draft. Exchange facilities can be planned to integrate the ring rail station with an existing metro station.
“Alignment Ring Rail connects the inheritance area, Delhi ecological assets and many commercial areas, special hop-on and hop-off services can be considered for tourist movements,” he added.
The draft also imagines more intelligent transportation. The intelligent transportation system (ITS) must use “artificial data and intelligence repositories” to significantly increase efficiency and coordination between various modes and transportation systems in the city.
“Mobility data repository (MDR) must be arranged for Delhi, where reliable and accurate data relating to the volume of traffic and trends of OD, hotspots accident, congestion, shipping traffic, can be provided in a different framework. Data is compiled from transit Different agencies must be standardized and updated regularly through surveys and information, “he said.
Innovative solutions through this will allow real-time data to predict and reduce potential challenges, use predictive technology for dynamic and efficient public transport fleet operations, system integration, and provide real-time information to commuters to increase the resilience of the transportation system, Design plan.
Also, the use of pre-warning time and minimizes emergency vehicle response time (ambulance, fire tender, etc.) by ensuring uninterrupted movements from the source to the destination, he added.
Draft MPD 2041 also emphasizes integrating multimodal transportation systems with multiple integrations in various modes that will facilitate transit station (Metro, RRT, train stations, ring rails) and the main bus terminal in Delhi an enhanced bus transportation system. With premium bus services and special bus services.
“The plan is targeting the economy of the night time to promote higher economic productivity and increase the availability of dynamic and safe public spaces at night. DMRC and DTC will be encouraged to operate low-frequency night services along the route and networks intended. City or for Special events or festivals according to the feasibility, “he said.
The trend of future mobility will lean towards electrification, shared mobility, mobility on request, and autonomy; Therefore, it becomes essential for Delhi to “change the gears of buildings for transportation to manage travel requests.” In addition, TOD policy (transit-oriented development) and electric vehicle policies also mentioned the plan design.
“It is very important to complement various initiatives that aim to increase the use of modes along with the strategy of regulations that are difficult to focus on disinsenization of personal transportation mode,” he said.
This plan proposes the following three main strategies to curb the use of private vehicles, including stipulation of congestion prices, parking request management, and prioritizing pedestrians and cyclists.
