  3. I do not understand your calculation of mode share. You have shown a total of 12.5%. What about the rest? Motorised Two-wheedlers? Going by your logic only 3% of road surface should be earmarked for ONLY Cycles. The rest of the mode share use a common surface. Since I do not understand your calculations I cannot term it SKEWED. Though any time spent on Pune roads does show BRT lanes being used by less than 1% of total traffic is SKEWED use of Road surface available.

    BRT should be on the side of the Road, since Buses have to stop frequently, whereas other modes of transport usually cover larger distances. LONDON and SINGAPORE has bus lanes along the sides of the Road, and they work efficiently. It makes it easier for alighting and boarding these Mass modes of Rapid Transportation.

    Today on my trip from Hinjewadi to Wanowarie I counted only 10 bicycles. With no population control in effect after the Sanjay Gandhi Fiasco, I think you have to plan for 2050, taking execution delays. Otherwise by the time any project is executed it is already under stress.

    I am for Development, but sadly I am not a YES Man, I do not agree with the views that already less road surface available be further reduced for non-existent cyclists. I think its time to wake up and smell the coffee. Reality is very different and it takes tremendous effort to find Solutions that ACTUALLY address the issues.
    Educating and explaining the need and then ENFORCEMENT. I am quite aware of the fact that till strict ENFORCEMENT is not implemented, you can keep sitting on your drawing boards. 50% of traffic woes will reduce with strict ENFORCEMENT. Just like 50% Swacch Bharat will be accomplished with ensuring the Municipal Corporations do their side of the job. You just have to look at a Cantonment and to realise the effect of strict IMPLEMENTATION and according RESPONSIBILITY.

    I wish you all the best, but sincerely in my heart of hearts hope that a feasible plan is executed rather than a Fancy Sounding Dream Plan.

    • The current mode share is:
      3% cycles
      4% auto
      5.5% motorized 4-wheelers
      11% bus (incl BRT)
      29% motorized 2-wheelers
      47% walk

      The intent of the PMC (in accordance with its Comprehensive Mobility Plan) is to CHANGE this mode share, and INCREASE the share of trips by cycle and bus. This is needed because the current trend of increasing use of private motorized vehicles is problematic, as it leads to ill health, accidents, congestion. This is the policy of the central government and the local government. In accordance with the policy, the PMC is now preparing the detailed plan by which the CHANGE can take place. Therefore, adequate infrastructure and management capability has to be created for promoting walk, cycling and public transport, and reducing / controlling the usage of private motor vehicles.

      The proposals in the Pune Cycle Plan therefore recommend:

      1. Creation of a Bicycle Dept
      2. Cycle-inclusive planning
      3. Cycle infrastructure including a cycle network, Public Bicycle System, cycle parking, integration with public transit
      4. Strengthening regulation and enforcement (as you suggest)
      5. Promotion of cycling and public engagement
      6. Monitoring and review

      About Bus Rapid Transit – when stops are on the side, commuters have to cross the entire width of the road at least twice in the up-down trips. In the BRT, commuters cross only half the road each time. The net distance of road crossing is the same. There is no ‘crossing’ advantage in bus lanes on the side of the road. For example, consider in a non BRT situation: you board the bus at Aga Khan Palace and get off at Gunjan Talkies, of course on the left side. For the return journey you will have to cross the whole road to get the bus outside Gunjan, and then again cross the whole road when you get back at Aga Khan Palace.

      Users of private motorized modes may perceive that they have reduced road space. However, the aim is to increase the throughput of the road by allowing for rapid movement of buses that carry many more passengers than cars. Again, the improvement in public transport requires physical infrastructure improvement and management improvements. The creation of the BRT corridors is part of the physical infrastructure. It is an necessary (though not sufficient) element of public transport improvement.

      The transformation of transportation requires work on several fronts. Cycling is one of the elements.

      As regards ‘aspiration’, you may like a quote from Bogotá Mayor Enrique Peñalosa in his 2013 Ted Talk, “An advanced city is not one where even the poor use cars, but rather one where even the rich use public transport”.

      The smell of the coffee is to pertain not to a city where more and more people use cars, but where more and more people can reach their destinations by walk, cycle, or public transport.


  4. A good initiative. Having seen the state of the existing bicycle track on the Solapur Road, I really hope that the tracks are of good quality and not encroachd for other purposes (2/4 wheeler parking,hawkers,etc)

  5. I have seen the development in Aundh and also along the Ganesh khind road. We look forward to similar development across Pune. The biggest challenge is from the floating population, the nuisance creators . Tackling these would be a challenge and strong punitive measures need to be implemented.
    Phase wise time lines are missing.

  6. I am very excited about this but I am not sure that it will work. I am watching that even the footpaths are not safe for walking. Every where the two wheelers are riding on the footpath. I find it so stressful to walk around. The civic sense doesn’t exist. There should be strict traffic police to make sure that these drivers do not come on the cycle track. Otherwise there will be lots of accidents. My friend’s father was hit by a two wheeler and he was bedridden for a year. He died without being able to communicate with his family. The cycle tracks will be used for parking vehicles and hawkers. It’s imperative that rules are made and strictly followed

  7. Eagerly waiting for the implementation, do not compromise with quality of track. Priority wise start work in the radius of 2 km distance of all schools and colleges. Also, during initial period of 6 months, would need traffic departments help near educational institutes with commando police for effective implementation, during school timings. This to control speed of heavy vehicles on main road and 2/4 wheeler/school vans on internal roads. Ensure that all schools have sufficient place for parking.

  8. As the cycling infrastructure will be planned developed and executed by the P M C. I strongly recommend that all the engineers CORPORATORS M L A the Mayor must compulsory cycle to work at least once a week.This way they will come to know what cycling facilities are there for the citizen how safe it is and indirectly the maintainance will be under pressure to see the tracks are paved and there’s no encroachments

  10. Some 40 years back Pune was known for it’s cycling public. But slowly motor cycles and scooters replaced bicycles. It will be great idea to go back to cycling for future generation’s health and ofcourse saving on petrol cost which is increasing every day.
