New norms for urban roads

The Urban Development Ministry plans to introduce new rules which would create adequate facilities for pedestrians, cyclists and other forms of non-motorised transport that form the basis of sustainable transport. The new guidelines include norms for signage and design of traffic intersections making them friendlier for non-motorised transport. The new norms will make urban roads all over the country uniform in terms of signage and other standards. The new norms also aim to bridge the gap between the latest advances in road safety design and the existing road designs in the country. An important area which will be addressed by the new norms will be the requirements of two-wheelers and para-transit vehicles such as auto rickshaws and tempos which act as feeders to the public transport system.
