Planning, Design And Engineering Of Sustainable Urban Transport by A. K. Jain
Book Summary:

India’s three way fast lane of liberalization, privatization and globalization is changing the lifestyles of its people. Increasing production, mobility and consumption are fast changing the patterns of travel and transport. Although transportation is the backbone of economic development, social transformation and urban growth, it suffers from serious problems, severe backlogs and poor planning, implementation and enforcement. The runaway growth of automobiles poses a considerable threat to the society in the form of traffic congestion, road accidents, pollution, noise stress, etc. Traditional solutions to cope up with the demand of increasing traffic have resulted into widening of roads up to the brim and parking spill over on the sidewalks thus eating away the area meant for the pedestrians and cyclists. Various studies indicate that the ownership of the private vehicles in urban areas is growing three to four times the population growth rate. The construction of flyovers, underpasses or grade separators is a temporary solution to congestion on the roads and if not planned carefully public transport may not necessarily reduce the volume of personal vehicles on the roads. The share of cycles, and non motorised vehicles (NMVs) is dwindling in Indian cities, which usually lack dedicated and safe right of way. In Indian cities as transport infrastructure usually guides the land use and planned residential areas along major arteries get converted to commercial and other uses. Parking is emerging as a major problems besides frequent traffic jams. The inadequacy of resources for road construction and poor maintenance add to traffic problems.
