Abstract

Cities in the developing world are facing numerous urban issues and one of them is provision of transport to all the citizens in the city. As income levels increase in cities people tend to shift to personal motorised transport and increase the burden on the existing road capacity. This often results in a chocked road, especially during peak hours. To accommodate the increasing vehicular growth, city officials often provide more space for the vehicles through road expansion projects such as road widening and, what space is scarce, a flyover is built. The initial result of these projects may please the implementors, however on a longer run, the situation again returns to the earlier state wherein the congestion prevails and, in many cases, there is also a spillover on to the neighbouring areas and arterials. Thus, the vicious cycle of provision for automobile in a city begins. (The rest omitted)
