TRANSPORTATION PLANNING FOR A NEW CITY IN A DEVELOPING COUNTRY

With rapid urbanization, planning and constructing new cities is, perhaps, equally common in the developing and the developed countries. The methods evolved for transportation planning (an important component of the urban planning process) for the developed countries would not, however, be directly applicable to the situation in the developing countries. A developing country has severe constraints; mainly relating to limited resources, the need to depend on and conserve indigenous resources, the paying capacity of the average citizen and the effect of the cost of transportation on the overall economy. An urban transportation plan for a new city near Bombay in India was evolved under such constraints. The article describes the criteria evolved for the transportation plan and describes the methodology of evolving a land use--transportation system for the new city. The factors which controlled the evolution of this plan have also been discussed.
