Streets are for all users - not only vehicles but also pedestrians, public transportation and cyclists. They are the great meeting and vending places too! Our streets must be designed for all uses they support, capturing the essence of the surrounding locality.
Therefore, Pune has developed "Urban Street Design Guidelines" to ensure that appropriate street types and design elements are implemented to create better streets for people.
- The Urban Street Design Guidelines give an overview of various elements that go into designing streets making them universally accessible, and also provide standard templates for different sizes and uses of streets.
- This document provides a mandate for PMC engineers and planners for designing and executing streets to meet local needs, avoiding a one-size-fits-all approach.
- The objective of these guidelines is defining and initiating a process to ensure that appropriate street types and street design elements are implemented to create better streets to support transportation objectives for the city considering the present and future needs.
