Densification of Metro Corridors - A Case of Lucknow

Shubha Kant [2] | Gaurav Singh [4]

Abstract: Mass transportation is a need at present. MRTS is a better option as compared to any other mode. The other modes like bus, auto-rickshaw, share taxi to assist as a feeder service to MRTS and has equal importance to improve the catchment area. Bolstering public transport is an absolute necessity as relentless growth of private travel is just not sustainable. The study evolves around understanding the need of densification of metro corridor according to the metro policy of 2017. A study has been done on the building use, built form, street character of the study area of Lucknow to analyses the gap and the potential sites where alternative product mix could be generated to increase the zonal development and the metro ridership vice versa. The transit oriented development is taken into consideration for parameters like walkability, healthier lifestyle, reduced traffic congestion, increased transit ridership, greater mobility, better environment and places to live and work.
