    UTTIPEC Processing

    The project was discussed in 82nd Working Group meeting of UTTIPEC under the chairmanship of Secretary, PWD held on 18.02.2021. The observations and recommendations of the Working Group –IIB meeting are as follows:

    At the onset of the meeting, the members were informed that all the consultants involved in the Walkability Plans work have been directed to follow the “General Recommendations” as decided in the 81stmeeting of the WG-IIB held on 03.02.2021 and to incorporate the same in their proposals henceforth.

    Deliberations/Observations:

    1. The Walkability Plan(s) should be designed/planned as a short term project, where shifting of utilities and removal of encroachment is possible with minimum intervention and in limited time-frame.
    2. Working group was informed that an automated parking underneath Spark Mall is existing having a capacity of around 800 cars. However, the same is under-utilized due to long waiting time.NDMC wasdirected to look for parking charges mechnism where in on-street parking rate is higher in compassion to automated parking at Spark Mall.
    3. North-DMC (NDMC)informed the chair that although some interventions such as bollards and traffic channelizing are being provided, however, the same has been ineffective due to illegal encroachments by the vendors and parking.It was suggested to earmark zones strictly for vending and parking activities along with imposition of fines of considerable amount to deter unauthorized/illegal use ofroad/footpath.
    4. Consultant was suggested to focus on both design and management strategies including enforcement mechanism to increase compliance and alternatives for provision of hedges and street furniture in the buffer space for preventing jaywalking and illegal encroachments by the vendors.
    5. The Consultant was also suggested to explore alternatives,where shifting of service lines/utilitiesis bare minimum as heavy cost on improvement and maintenance is incurred, regularly.
    6. ITMS be explored forParking Management by Traffic Police, DelhiandNDMC for keeping the footpath clear from hindrance in the market area and also imposeharsherfineson shop owners to curb down the encroachment and parking violations in front of their shops.

    Recommendation:

    The proposal after the incorporation of afore-cited deliberations/observations be uploaded on the website of UTTIPEC for ‘community feedback’ for a period of 30 days.

    General Recommendations (in addition to as given in 81st WG IIB Meeting:

    1. Possibility of providing trenches/services ducts as one time solution may be worked out as a long term solution in consultation with all the stakeholders (water,electricity, telephone, cable TV, etc.). The proposal of Walkability Plans required implementation in a   short term, hence, low maintenance cost strategy needs to be worked out.
    2. Walkability Plans should be implemented along with provision of stringent enforcement regulatory mechanism along with installation of cameras as well as signages for traffic management, encroachments, spillovers to ensure seamless pedestrian areas supported with heavy penalties/fines on all types of violators.
    3. Local body(ies)/DDA to develop a mechanism for the regulation of encroachment on footpaths/service lanes, etc. by shopkeepers, vendors in commercial areas through imposing heavy penalties/fines on all violators.
    4. Traffic Police to utilize Intelligent Traffic Management System (ITMS) like Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) for identifying and penalizing the motorized vehicles other than designated road(s), immediately through installation of cameras on strategic locations as well as proper signages and intermediate announcements.
    5. Before the implementation of the proposals for the Walkability Plans, all the concerned agencies to identify the appropriate locations for provision for kiosks, public amenities, gas pipelines, etc. wherever required to ensure seamless movement of pedestrians. The above needs to be planned in consultation with all the concerned departments like Traffic Police, Local body, IGL and PWD, etc.
    6. DMRC/Railways to explore possibility of including construction of separate unpaid passage for pedestrian movement across the roads/rails in design and implementation of both existing as well as under planning/construction metro stations. This would facilitate 24 x 7 movement of general public across the busy roads especially Arterial Roads/Highways and will also reduce the need for construction of separate public FOBs/Subways in future.
    7. Possibility of mandatory provision for public conveniences at ground level within all the MLCPs directly accessible from the main road be explored by all the implementing local bodies/authority.
