    • Mysore City Profile  Mysore, one of the largest districts in Karnataka, is an important tourist and heritage centre.  Mysore city is the second biggest city of the State, which lies 135 Kms from the State Headquarters, Bangalore.  It was the erstwhile capital of the princely Mysore State. It is now the headquarters of Mysore District covering an area of more than 40 sq. km.  The city is well connected to the neighbouring States of Kerala and Tamil Nadu through road and rail network.  The city is also well connected to other parts of the State by road as well as rail.
    • BACKGROUND  Mysore is called the City of Palaces as it is home to a number of palaces like the Amba Vilas (Main Mysore Palace), Rajendra Vilas (the Summer Palace, situated on Chamundi hills), Jayalakshmi Vilas (now in the Mysore University premises) and Jaganmohan Palace.  In addition to the above, the city also has a number of places of tourist attraction which include Chamundi Hills, Brindavan Gardens, Mysore Zoo, St. Philomena’s Church & Museum.  Srirangapatna, Nanjangud, Bandipur, Ranganthittu, Melkote and B.R. Hills are some of the other tourist locations around Mysore with distances varying from 10 to 80 km from Mysore.
    • Landuse  The total area of Mysore city, which was 7569 hectares in 1995, has increased to 9221 hectares in 2001, representing a growth rate of 22%.  The total area is further expected to increase to 15669 hectares by 2011. The growth in recent years is skewed towards Southern Mysore i.e towards Nanjangud.  MUDA/ private developers have developed new layouts in the area like, Vijayanagar and J.P. Nagar. Besides, the residential layouts the private developers have lined up an array of proposals to develop malls, convention centres and golf course etc Category Area in hectares % Area 2011 Residential 6,097.87 43.45 Commercial 344.07 2.45 Industrial 1855.05 13.22 Park and open spaces 1055.05 7.52 Public and semi-public 1180.78 8.41 Traffic and Transportation 2,380.56 16.96 Public utility 43.35 0.31 Water sheet 178.95 1.27 Agricultural 898.99 6.41 Nehru Loka 1,634.82 - Total 15669.49 100
    • Traffic Characteristics  Heterogeneous – mix of fast & slow moving vehicles  Current Vehicular Population – 3.55 Lakhs  Growth per annum – 8-9% Existing Scenario  Increase in  commercial & tourism activities  overall economic growth of city  use of personalized vehicles
    • Traffic Characteristics  Shift of activities from Banglore to Mysore  Improved connectivity like B’lore-Mysore Expressway,  Bangalore-Mysore 4 Lane Highway, Broad-Gauge Railway connectivity & new Airport
    • ROAD Connectivity  State highways 17, 33, 86, 88 pass through Mysore connecting it to nearby cities.  Mysore is connected by National Highway NH-212 to the state border town of Gundlupet, where the road forks into the states of Kerala and Tamil Nadu  The existing four-lane road linking Mysore to Bangalore is being upgraded to a six-lane highway, thus significantly reducing the commute time. Mysore is the railway junction for the district, and rail lines connect Mysore city to Bangalore to the northeast via Mandya, the rail junction at Hassan to the northwest, and Chamarajanagar via Nanjangud to the south east.
    •  A project was planned in 1994 to construct a new expressway to connect Bangalore and Mysore. After numerous legal hurdles, it remains unfinished as of 2012.  State Highways 33 and 88 which connect Mysore to H D Kote and Madikeri respectively.  TheKarnataka State Road Transport Corporation(KSRTC) and other private agencies operate buses both within the city and between cities.  A new division of KSRTC called Mysore City Transport Corporation (MCTC) has been proposed.  Within the city, buses are cheap and popular means of transport, auto-rickshaws are available, and tongas (horse-drawn carriages) are popular.  Mysore also has a 42.5-kilometre (26.4 mi) long ring road that is being upgraded to six lanes ROAD Connectivity
    • Mysore city has radial and gridiron pattern road network with arterial roads originating from the city centre. Palace is the focal point of origin of all arterial roads running radially to outer areas of the city. The city has 5 main arterial roads, which are also the State Highways connecting Bangalore and Ooty Bannur and Kanakapura Hunsur and Mangalore H.D. Kote and Manantvady The total road network in the city was 335 kilometers in 1971. It increased to 432 kilometers in 1981, which accounts for 29% of increase over a decade.  There are 48 main roads in the city covering a total length of around 58 kms. As on 2001, the total length of all types of roads was about 1773 km. ROAD Connectivity
    • Ring Roads  The road network of the city includes three ring roads viz. outer ring road, intermediate ring road and inner ring road and also arterials roads, sub-arterial roads, collector roads and others.  The three ring roads not only collect traffic from other roads but also act as by-pass roads at their respective locations in order to avoid congestion especially at the core of the city.  Outer Ring Road (ORR) Outer Ring Road (ORR) around Mysore City was conceived to divert the traffic from the city area, which are crossing through the city and minimize the congestion within the city.  The entire length of ORR takes off from Bangalore – Mysore Road (SH-17) and circumferences Mysore City on the western side crossing KRS Road, Hunsur Road, Bogadi Road, HD Kote Road and joins the Ooty Road near the Regulated Market; and in the eastern side crossing Bannur Road and joins Mahadevpura Road near Star Poultry Farm.
    •  Along the western side of the city, the ORR of 25 km stretch is mainly 2 lane which is proposed to be widened to 4 lane divided carriageway. Towards the eastern side, 7.2 Km stretch ORR is 4 lane divided carriageway of 20m wide and 9.5 Km stretch between Bannur and Nanjangud is yet to be tackled.  However, MUDA has proposal to construct / widen ORR so that the total width would be 45m. ORR has been constructed with total crust thickness of 515 mm with the top portion comprising 40 mm Bituminous Concrete.  There are 40 curves with design speed of 80 km/h; however in certain stretches design speed has been restricted to 65 km/h due to sharp curves and steep gradient.  Intermediate Ring Road The Intermediate Ring Road is not a new alignment. It is proposed along the existing roads only. It is proposed to increase the width along the entire stretch to 30 m.  The Intermediate Ring Road starts from new Kantharaja Urs road, passes through Vishwamanava Double Road, Bogadi Road, Open Air theatre Road, Hunsur Road and Gokulam Road.
    •  The existing road passes through Manjunathapura, in front of Ideal Jawa up to Highway Circle and then passes through Bannimanatapa, old Bangalore-Mysore Road, Hyderali road, Karanji Tank Bund Road, Race Course road, Bangalore – Nilgiri Road, J.L.B Road to join Kantharaja road.  The width of this intermediate ring road along Kantharaja Urs road has been retained at 24 m, as many structures have come up on either sides of this road.  Inner Ring Road The inner ring road is also not a new road but its alignment is proposed along the existing roads and the width is proposed to be widened to 30 m.  The width along Shesadri Iyer road and Sawday road are kept as 24 m whereas in other reaches it has been proposed as 30 m.  The inner ring road starts from Sawday Road and passes through Bangalore-Nilgiri Road, Chamaraja Double road, J.L.B Road, Shesadri Iyer road and then joins Sawday Road.
    • KSRTC in Mysore  KSRTC in Mysore  No. of City Depot & Terminals 2 each  No. of Schedules 232  Distance operated / Day (City +Sub Urban)- 56127 km  Total Trips / Day-4384  No. of Passengers Carried / Day-1.79 lakhs  Average Bus Route Length-11.2 km  Speed-17-19 km/hour
    • BRTS Why BRTS in Mysore  To meet increasing travel demand  To avoid future traffic congestion (lessons from Bangalore City)  To encourage use of public transport  Need for systematic planning, operation and management of public transport  BRTS- cost-effective system, flexible, high quality transit services
    •  If everything goes according to plan, the city will shortly have a Bus Rapid Transport System (BRTS) on the lines of Ahmedabad in Gujarat.  After implementation of the programme, entry of two-wheelers and cars will be banned in the heart of the city, and public transport facilities will be developed in the city centre.  Plans have been made to shift the city bus stand to other places, and the place of the present bus stand will be developed as a historical place as it is adjacent to the Palace. The measures have been taken to keep the core area environment-friendly. This decision was taken at a City Corporation Council meeting held in the city on Sunday, based on the Mysore Master Plan-2031.  state Cabinet approved the BRTS to be built in three cities of the state at a cost of over 1,173 crore.  BRTS is expected to substantially solve the traffic problems of the emerging cities and added that Mysore will get the lion's share of the project  where over 160km length of dedicated track for buses would be built followed by 30km lengths each in Bangalore and HubliDharwad
    • RAILWAY CONNECTIVITY  Mysore railway station is a station in the historical city of Mysore, Karnataka, India. Previously Mysore was connected to Bangalore by a meter-gauge line, which has now been converted to broad gauge. Doubling process is being done in this route at present.  Mysore station is also a junction with a track from Bangalore and another from Hassan joining the same as it enters the station. The track on the other side proceeds to Nanjangudand Chamrajnagar after which there is a proposal to extend it to Coimbatore but being stayed as it pass through the forest area of Sathyamangalam.  There are about 6 platforms at this station. After the gauge conversion,many trains which earlier terminated at Bangalore were extended to Mysore.
    • Heritage gallery  The Mysore Railway Station is home to a ‘Model Railroad Layout’, which is housed in the heritage gallery, is the first of its kind in the country.  The Model Railroad Layout which was created by the Mysore Division of the South Western Railway has six miniature trains.  The miniature trains imported from the US will run on digital command control system along a track length of 600 metres.  It also has models of Chamundi Hill, K R Circle, KRS Dam, Clock Tower, Philomena’s church and Zoo.  Similar type of models could be found at Museum of Science and Industry (Chicago), USA, which had about 160 miniature trains and Hamburg in Germany which has one of the biggest railroad model layouts.  The entry to the gallery situated on platform one is free for passengers who have tickets. For others, it will be through platform
    •  The activities proposed by the administration of the city for developing the network of roads and developing an efficient transportation system are as indicated below:  Completion and expansion of ring road in phases:  Completing the 2 lanes, expansion of 2 lanes to 4 lanes.  Development of outer ring roads in sync with the growth of the city  Strengthening/ improvement of the roads including resurfacing  Maintaining the roads and related infrastructure to prescribed standards  Construction and/or widening of road bridges/ culverts etc.  Construction and maintenance of radial roads & inner ring road  Construction and maintenance of footpaths Proposed projects envisaged under CDP, Mysore:
