The current report - Intersection Improvement at Udaipur - A demonstration of Passive Junction Design Solutions, is part of the output reports under the project “Supporting Smart Urban Mobility and Built Environment in Indian Cities” under Grant Ref: G 15 SSEF-140 for the period of October 2015 to January 2017. The main objective and deliverables of the project were to broadly engage with state level officials in two states and have continuous on ground engagements with targeted authorities in cities on urban transport and built environment towards implementing the Smart Cities Mission. This included assessment of existing urban transport scenario in the identified cities for each state providing handholding support to city teams for smooth initiation of Smart city program.
The report presents the summary of design strategy for improvement of intersection/junctions to resolve traffic issues at three major junctions - Suraj Pole, Hathi Pole and Delhi Gate, along with the streets connecting them. The report also intends to capture the various issues encountered during redevelopment of junction, as per revised designs. Based on the response from different stakeholders, the report provides process details which can be replicated for redesign of other junctions in Udaipur.
