VERSOVA -ANDHERI- GHATKOPAR METRO CORRIDOR METRO STATION AREA MANAGEMENT & DISPERSAL 16th April, 2013
METRO STATION AREA MANAGEMENT & DISPERSAL OBJECTIVES Efficient and safe traffic dispersal in metro station areas Efficient management of road space below metro stations Efficient and safe movement of pedestrians at metro stations To achieve integration amongst various modes at metro stations
METRO STATION AREA MANAGEMENT & DISPERSAL FOCUS AREAS To ensure uniform 2+2 lanes for traffic – Widening of Footpaths Efficient traffic and commuters dispersal Integration with Other Transport Modes Parking Provision near Metro Station areas. Station Influence Zone for restricting on-street parking, hawking & providing encroachment free footpaths. Footpath Railings.
The proposed different elements on the road 2.5 – 3.5m : Footpath EB TB Bus Stop Parking / Waiting area 1.5 - 2.5 m : MUZ 7.0 m : Carriageway 3.0 m : Metro column area 7.0 m : Carriageway Bus Stop Vendors Autorick stand Property 1.5 - 2.5 m : MUZ Access 2.5 – 3.5m : Footpath Consistent width and continuous length for footpath and carriageway MUZ, wherever available, to be utilised for provision of bus-stops, parking/waiting area, auto-rickshaw stand, utility boxes, etc6

GUIDING PRINCIPLES FOR METRO STATION AREA MANAGEMENT & DISPERSAL No Parking, No Hawking & No Encroachment on Footpath: Main Arterial- Restrictions of “ No parking and No hawking” to be enforced below the station and also for a stretch of 100 m on both sides from edge of the station; Connector Roads– 200m stretch on both sides of the metro alignment shall be kept free for operations of feeder bus routes, IPT (auto/taxi pickup/drop off ) & cycle/ two wheeler parking; Encroachment on foot paths under Metro Station Influence zone to be removed.
GUIDING PRINCIPLES….. BUS ROUTE INTEGRATION: Bus Stops to be located within 50m distance from entry/ exit points of metro station; Relocation of bus stops wherever required to optimize walking distance; Maintain sufficient gap between bus stop and auto/taxi stands/pickup/drop-off places to avoid conflict of movement.
GUIDING PRINCIPLES…..TRAFFIC DISPERSAL (VEHICLE & PEDESTRIANS): Vehicular Movement: Widening of Footpaths below metro stations Uniform 2+2 lanes for smooth flow of traffic (for stations on JP Road & Andheri (East) ,MV rd) Uniform 3+3 lanes for smooth flow of traffic at other stations. Pedestrian Movement: Encroachment Free Footpaths along Main and Connector Roads. Streamlining of existing utilities / facilities where ever required.
