Overall project: The HSR NIP- location An Accessibility Project for Indiranagar Metro Station TOWARDS A WALKABLE AND SUSTAINABLE BENGALURU Greater Mumbai DPEffects of Current Parking Norms (DP 1991) High provision of parking supply and additional exemptions to support more supply Incentives to support excess of parking supply irrespective of the congestion From only minimum parking mind set to - introducing maximum cap in TOD areas Integrated approach of on-street parking management with off-street parking Effective usage of parking lots round the clock through mixed use and common pool Do not allow multi storied parking lots in immediate surroundings of the station Use parking as a tool to favour mass public transit and enhance street life Parking affects accessibility to public transit & indirectly influence who lives in TOD Existing Policy Situation Proposed Approach For Parking Policy Supporting TOD

Overall project: The HSR NIP- location An Accessibility Project for Indiranagar Metro Station TOWARDS A WALKABLE AND SUSTAINABLE BENGALURU NRDASector – Neighborhood Design Pedestrian and NMT oriented design Easy access to transit nodes Mixed use and high density around sector center. Concept of „high street‟ Water networks retained Originals routes connecting villages are integrated with the new design. Thus establishing connections with the old and the new. Equitable design – equal access to all social classes and various physical typologies Sector design „part‟ of the master plan design and not an „isolated‟ entity.

  49. 49. Overall project: The HSR NIP- location An Accessibility Project for Indiranagar Metro Station TOWARDS A WALKABLE AND SUSTAINABLE BENGALURU NRDAParticipation Process: Learning Long term partnerships is essential to – together develop a system which the agency can take further Continuous persuasion on addressing concerns is key Technical expertise incorporating, locally informed contextual solutions works better Aim to change of mind set from standard approaches to sustainable principles
  50. 50. Aim to change the mind set from vehicular oriented accessibility to people oriented; There is need to mandate for local access plans in the TCP Acts. But „bottom up‟ efforts are effective in influencing change; Ward plans are a good tool for implementation of Local Accessibility plans, but preparing local level plans alone does not ensure better accessibility – commitment to sustainability principles is key Public Participation is critical to develop successful plans; Elected representatives from wards need to be „Champions‟ for success of such projects; EMBARQ India is bringing out the Safe Access Manual in 2014. Look forward to your comments… Overall project: The HSR NIP- location An Accessibility Project for Indiranagar Metro Station TOWARDS A WALKABLE AND SUSTAINABLE BENGALURU Summary
