INDIAN RAILWAYS - Vijayawada
Client: South Central Railways, Vijayawada
Developed and digitized the Vijayawada Railway Station master-plan by fusing existing station plans and limited on-site measurements with the satellite image.
Using this, a new traffic plan was proposed to counter the current disorder and avoid future congestions. The plan is based on the concept of seggregating traffic (both human and vehicular) to reduce confusion. The plan proposes to minimizes criscrossing of people and vehicles; widen the main approach road to accomodate a rapid transit system; separate vehicle lanes; relocate the main entry and exit of the station and connect the well with parking lots; develop another parallel main entry; introduce a new bus hub directly connected to the station FOB; introduce prepaid taxi/auto/rickshaw stands; commercialize adjacent railway properties to maximize revenue; etc.
