Updated: Jun 4

 

DATE: 2012

PARTNERS: DIirectorate Of Urban Land Transport, Govt. of Karnataka, & Jaaga.

COMMUNITY: Artists, Neighborhood residents & Commuters.


The objective of this project is to take stock of the existing environment for non-motorized transport and to assess the problems faced by the local people to formulate a project with consultations and community engagement of residents and commuters of Malleswaram for the improvement of existing infrastructure. 2500 interviews were conducted to involve people.

The Directorate of Urban Land Transport (DULT) in partnership with Jaaga initiated a project for Neighbourhood Accessibility Planning in Malleswaram on October 15th, 2011. The objective of this project is to take stock of the existing environment for non-motorized transport and to assess the problems faced by the local people, especially the elderly, children, and differently-abled in making use of the available infrastructure and to formulate a project with consultations and community engagement of residents and users of Malleswaram for the improvement of existing infrastructure. This is with the idea of transforming the neighborhood from a traffic-congested commuter street into a more environmentally and culturally conscious, pedestrian and bicycle-friendly locality through a participatory process of planning and designing. In February 2012 the MAP team completed the first phase of the project with a grand finale – Malleswaram Moves! an urban neighborhood festival showcasing the 2000 surveys, community engagement, and process followed to the Malleswaram community. Now, the team is working on the final report that will catalog the efforts into the project and recommendations, based on public input, on how further work can be conducted. Know More Here
