School Street Design

The existing condition of the nodes, streets and roads were focused majorly on maintaining
vehicular traffic movement, pedestrians, and identification of major nodes around the locality
for public. As there is very less approach taken towards pedestrian to make them active for
locality. The approach was to study varying street classifications, scales, and land uses to
show how program needs and design approaches initiated the reallocation of space within
the right-of-way to benefit all users and achieve social, economic, and environmental goals
within an existing transportation network.
As a result, public rights-of-way are increasingly recognized as environmental and economic
assets that support active living and healthy environments.
Factors Affecting Right of Way in this project :
UNIVERSAL ACCESSIBILITY
The footpaths are designed such that they can be comfortably accessed by individuals in wheelchairs
and people using trams.
TABLE TOP CROSSINGS
The crossings have been raised to the footpath level slowing down the vehicular traffic and
making it wheelchair accessible.
BICYCLE TRACKS AND STREET FURNITURE
A bicycle track will be provided to encourage cycling as a mode of transport. Street furniture
will been designed to make livelier streets
CURB JUNCION RAMPS
Ramps will be placed at the footpath curb junction on building entrances so that a uniform footpath
level is achieved for pedestrian convinence .
BAYS FOR LONG ROUTE BUSES
Bus bays for long route buses may prove in-efficient as the frequency and wait tme for these buses is
low which may lead to the bays being encroached by vehicular parking, also a bigger turning radius is
required which makes it inconvenient for the the bus to come into the bay and again get into the
traffic flow.
BAYS FOR FEEDER BUSES
A bus bay for the feeder routes needs to be provided as a long wait tome is required for the
amount of people boarding and alighting at the stations will be more which may cause hindrance.
BAYS FOR TAXI
Taxi stands need to be provided so as to not hinder the free flowing traffic or cause bottleneck on the
street
