Neighbourhood Street Design

The site lies in the city center of the city Jaipur. The existing road abutting the site is a
4-lane carriageway which majorly focuses on the vehicular traffic movement,
neglecting the pedestrian movement. After analyzing the site, interventions were done
on the aspects that were absent. These interventions were done to make them
pedestrian friendly and revive them for regular uses by active participation of the
locals.
The different elements used in this can be classified into 3 categories, Street
elements, Safety elements, and multi-utility zones. Street elements include
Footpath – clear walkway
