Proposed Pedestrian Streets in the CBD of Panjim

Location: Panjim
Status: Project Proposal Report
Year of Completion: 2013

Traffic congestion is usually addressed by increasing road capacity, which only attracts more cars leading to more traffic jams. In contrast, the Foundation has proposed a Decongestion Model which prioritizes giving people more space and attempts to make the city centre more accessible, safe and vibrant. The key parameters addressed in the project were rationalizing traffic patterns and bettering public transport; introducing parking lots both within the city core and at the outskirts; and creating more pedestrian-friendly environments.
