Nanded is a historic religious town located on the banks of the River Godavari in Maharashtra. It provides a typical example of small town India. Planned interventions are lacking and where present - inadequate.
The proposed street network reflects the diversity in user profile and street activity seen in the town. It is intended that the project be a model for other towns of similar sizes in India.
Key features of the project include:
- Rationalisation of Motor Vehicle Lanes to accommodate all users
- Separate lanes for Non-motorised Vehicles
- Pedestrian precinct around the Sachkhand Gurudwara
- Innovative street cross-sections to incorporate tree plantation, hawkers, On street parking, para transport stands, street furniture, bus shelters, public toilets etc.
The project is being implemented through a public private partnership between IL&FS and the Nanded Waghala Municipal Corporation under the Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission. We have worked very closely with a range of experts on this project including IIT Delhi and I-CE, Holland
