Title: Determining mode-priority on shared streets : A key solution for Pune city’s Sustainable Mobility Development. Case analysis of Pune’s core area
Language: English
Abstract:

Ranked as the most livable city in India and set to become a global urban center, Pune is currently at a high risk of reaching a deadlock over traffic congestion, traffic accidents and unbreathable air, threatening to cause unprecedented challenges in the city’s fast-paced growing landscape (Bari, 2018; TOMTOM 2021). The city’s Mobility Plan has actively planned, guided and monitored Pune’s transportation facilities for over a decade. In 2018, the city set a goal of modal increase of Public Transport from 19% (in 2018) up to 50% (in 2038) (L&T Infra Engineering, 2018). However, the contradiction in the vision and the reality has been evident in this increasing gap of modal share and mobility inconvenience, presenting the need for research. This dissertation is an empirical research of Pune’s core area, and Comprehensive Mobility Plan. Sustainable Urban Transport principles emphasized in the avoid-shift-improve approach are used to guide this research (GIZ, 2021a; Wilbur Smith, IL&FS, 2008). The literature review investigates the Mobility Plan Action Items, and provides a framework to analyze the street network of the study area based on two of the ten Sustainable Urban Transport principles: 1. Optimizing the road network and its use, and 2. Encouraging walking and cycling (GIZ, 2021a). Spatial mapping and street-network-analysis are carried out by using programs of QGIS and depthmapX respectively, based on Space Syntax street connectivity tools - Integration and NACH. Results of the spatial analysis have then been discussed through online interviews with local and international experts. This dissertation concludes that mode-priority on Pune’s shared streets is an attainable solution to achieve its mobility vision. The conclusion is finalized in the design of a Route Map and Safe-Street-Guidelines, to ensure citizens’ mobility-convenience, traffic safety, and to support Pune’s long-term Mobility Development Planning.
