Bus Lane Optimisation at Bandra Kurla Complex-BKC Back

Location: Bandra Kurla Complex(BKC), Mumbai
Year: 2010

 

Bandra Kurla Complex has become a prime commercial hub in Mumbai and India. Unfortunately, this is accompanied by heavy traffic jams.

With the opening of SCLR there is generation of new through traffic .While MMRDA plans to add new flyovers and widen the roads, it may not encourage a switch to larger use of space efficient public transport.

Hence this experiment assumes a great importance since a bus occupies three times the space of a car but carries about 20/30 times more passengers.
