1 Establishing Institutions for the coordinated planning and management of urban transport H.M. Shivanand Swamy Center of Excellence in Urban Transport (COE-UT), CEPT University, Ahmedabad Sustainable & Inclusive Transport Workshop- Thimpu

2 Centre of Excellence in Urban Transport, CEPT University, Ahmedabad, India CEPT University focuses on understanding, designing, planning, constructing and managing human habitats. Its teaching programs build thoughtful professionals and its research programs deepen understanding of human settlements. CEPT University also undertakes advisory projects to further the goal of making habitats more livable. The University comprises five faculties. Faculty of Architecture Faculty of Planning Faculty of Technology Faculty of Design Faculty of Habitat Management 2012 The Center of Excellence in Urban Transport, CEPT University (CEPT-CoE), established in 2009 is an initiative of the Ministry of Urban Development (MoUD), Government of India, CEPT-CoE has been envisaged as a resource centre for dealing with issues in urban transport planning and management. It has a mandate to cover three aspects of capacity building in urban transport - human resource development, knowledge management and technical assistance & advisory.

6 Urban Transport Challenges Unplanned urban growth leading to urban sprawl Higher Capital Investments Increased trip lengths Longer travel times Resulting in congestion- delays Road safety risks Increased energy consumption Deterioration in air quality. Increased dependence on private modes of travel The focus on facilitating vehicular movements Little/no emphasis on quality pedestrian infrastructure /cyclist infrastructure. Motorisation and inadequate transport infrastructure With economic development 2 wheelers are shifting towards car Our cities are not designed for car dominated traffic Unplanned growth Street networks with irregular, not hierarchical pattern COE-UT,Cept University

7 Urban Transport Challenges Air and Noise Pollution The transport sector contributes to about 15% of CO2 emissions in India, and has been increasing Indian cities are very noisy. Mumbai and Delhi have both registered more than 90 db, making Mumbai the third noisiest city in the world Road Safety Road accidents have grown 2.5 times from 2000 to 2012 pedestrians and cyclists accounts for more than 60% of the urban road fatalities Institutional Inadequacies Urban transport is not the responsibility of any one institution Centre State Local Railways, Shipping, Aviation Land & Urban Transport City bus & city transport infrastructure Major port Minor Port Inland waterways Trunk Highways Other roads Local Roads Financing of Urban Transport Urban local bodies fund transport through local taxation Limited resources- focus on building & maintaining roads, flyovers & under bridges Public transport only a discretionary function of local bodies COE-UT,Cept University

12 Urban Transport Planning & Management needs a holistic approach Need to balance supply side measures with demand side measures This requires many actions to happen in an integrated and well coordinated manner These actions are taken by multiple agencies, that often cut across different levels of the Govt. This is the institutional challenge Source : OP Agrawal,World Bank Establishing Institutions for the coordinated planning and management of urban transport

13 Essential to integrate this fragmented responsibility through a lead institution having comprehensive responsibility Source : OP Agrawal,World Bank Establishing Institutions for the coordinated planning and management of urban transport

14 PLANNING & MANAGEMENT OF URBAN TRANPORT - INSTITUTIONS

15 Spatial Planning How to structure (Re)Development? Land use Planning A Statutory Process Town Planning & Urban Development Act How to organise mobility systems? Transport /Mobility Plans Not Statutory/Adhoc basis Planned as two separate systems!! Integrated Approach is required

41 Adapting Indicators for Hill Cities Why do we need to look at Hill Cities differently? Geographical constraints Steep slopes, landslides, heterogeneity of climate, land use pattern and scarcity of buildable land Population size Residents vs Visitors Size of these cities maybe smaller but the scale is much larger as it is driven by both residents and visitors Functionality Small cities deliver higher order functions (not matching with size)

42 Paved footsteps Near NST Station High School Near Red cross building

43 Unpaved footsteps Along NH-29 Martyrs Park to PWD office Along NH-29

44 Methodology for Hill Cities Research background methodology to compute basis for Hill Cities Developing a base Survey required for computation Base information required to collect for all hill cities 1. Contours 2. Generate Elevation from Contours 3. Generate Slopes from Elevation. 4. Using Path distance tool and applying Tobler s hiking function (vertical factors) to calculate the cost in terms of time. 1.Public transport user survey 2. Average walking speed Interpretation of 500m buffer

45 Methodology for Hill Cities Computation Result from survey Calculation for computation Sample size 1% of ridership-220nos 75% of bus users use walk as an access and egress mode 45 % of the bus users are walking 10 minutes 23% of the bus users are willing to walk upto 2o minutes to a bus stops Average walking speed is 2.3 km/hr m = 230 m i.e. It takes 6 minutes to walk 230m in hill areas 2. Willingness to walk = 20 mins =750m i.e. Coverage of public transport is 750m instead of 500m becausepeoplewalkmoreon hilly areas.
