In the next 10 years Noida is going to be like metro city only with almost triple of resident population and floating population as NH 24 is widening and FNG would be ready. Increase in FAR & increase in mixed land use cannt also be avoided in next 2 years to meet budget requirement by Authority.
Roads can be widened but surely at the cost of space on road for pedestrians.
What we accepted that Autos & private cars will be there forever and thus working on road. It’s like sugar disease, one has to walk & control diet nor to make his dependence more & more insulin which is not only costly but much dangerous to develop other complications in body. Autos are thus increasing threat to women safety, more accidents, more police required etc.
Subsidised Battery run mini buses, mono-rail network, foot over bridges, sky-walks, 3.5 mtr free pedestrian space on both flank of road ate the only feasible solutions among many other probable solutions for meeting increasing traffic linked pressure.
