  6. 6. Pedestrians on Outer Circle are “ illegally jaywalking culprits ” in the historic city centre….
  7. 7. Learning from Others…
  8. 8. Thoroughfare “High Streets” around the World: <ul><li>All major cities around the world also have thoroughfare roads move through their Historic City Centres, but traffic on these roads, although heavy, is expected to move slow , and expected to STOP for pedestrians & cyclists to cross at grade . </li></ul><ul><li>CP is a City Centre where Outer Circle is partly a Thoroughfare Road. </li></ul>Every 170 – 300 M, but NO at-grade crossing in perpendicular direction 35 M major thoroughfare Outer Circle, CP, New Delhi Every 100 - 300 M 40 M major thoroughfare Marylebone Road, London Every 250 - 300 M 30 M major thoroughfare 42nd St, New York Every 250 M 30 M major thoroughfare Huai Hai Road, Shanghai Every 100 - 250 M 40 M major thoroughfare Market Street, San Francisco At-grade Pedestrian Crossing Frequency Width Street name, Location

  11. 11. Market Street , San Francisco Urban Thoroughfare Multimodal Street
  12. 12. <ul><li>Separating the pedestrian and public transport user to a different grade ensures that traffic on Outer Circle will start moving even faster – in turn discouraging pedestrian activity and in a short time, creating even more severe congestion – as the flyovers of the city already have. </li></ul><ul><li>Moreover, we have already seen in Delhi that subways are not safe and do not get used. An especially in Connaught Place , where people actually desire to walk at grade to “enjoy” the experience of the historic city centre at all times. </li></ul>Disadvantages of converting Outer Circle into a high-speed Motorway

  29. 29. 30 M Right-of-Way on radial roads – is enough to accommodate all users: Cycle/ NMV Lane On-street Parking Hawkers/ Pedestrian spill-over
