The UTTIPEC (Unified Traffic and Transportation Infrastructure Planning and Engineering Centre) on 21 February 2013 started efforts for developing vision as well as strategy for successful implementation of the plans for mass-rapid transport system in Delhi. Already, pilot projects along the four metro corridors as well as Karkardooma have got in-principal approval for first phase of transit-oriented development (TOD).

UTTIPEC is the division of Delhi Development Authority. It has plans for conducting around 25 workshops in coming months which would focus on metro corridors between Chattarpur to Arjangarh and Peeragarhi to Teekri Kalan. The aim of these workshops is to create awareness about TOD policy. Also, the workshops will include concerns raised by stakeholders such as NGOs, RWAs, DTC, DMRC, private transporters, DTC as well as other experts.

UTTIPEC planners on 21 February 2013 emphasised on the fact that TOD system would help in making the transport system friendly to women, cyclists and walkers.

Aim of TOD

The aim of TOD is building mass-rapid transport hubs which will have inner zone of 300 metres radius that would be called intense-zone. This intense-zone will give preference to non-motorised transport, pedestrians as well as high-density mixed use development.

Two other concentric zones of 800 metres and 2 km will be built with equal road-space distribution and high-density street network.

Nine themes

The workshops would create strategies as well as plans which would have nine themes and these are:

• visualising of the TOD-based development
• economic feasibility and market testing
• strategy for sustainable infrastructure
• transferring development rights as well as its implementation
• strategy for incentivising redevelopment
• strategy for sustainable transport infrastructure
• strategy for effective parking
• strategy for rolling out the TOD

In order to select the models for retrofitting, green-field development and redevelopment, design competitions will be held.
