URBAN LAND USE AND NONMOTORIZED TRANSPORT IN KANPUR, INDIA

In the United States, considerable priority has been placed on the segregation of land uses and the relatively free flow of motorized vehicles on urban streets and roads. This policy has allowed considerable economic benefits. In less developed countries, as in earlier U.S. experience, streets and roads are an integral part of the urban marketplace. Most of the economic activity in that marketplace is conducted with slow-moving vehicles or on foot. Research in Kanpur, India, has identified relationships between different travel modes and land uses that could lead to land use planning that would more effectively accommodate slow-moving vehicles and accord fast-moving vehicles their appropriate importance in the transportation hierarchy.
