Master Plan of urban street- No increase in road width and cutting of trees.
——————————
.
This article Ar. Prasanna Desai talks about how to design a master plan of urban streets which would help pedestrians to walk safe as well as drivers not to create congestion. He talked about this through his project of Aundh Smart street ,Pune. It is the first urban street in Pune. He has neither increased the width of road nor has cut any of the trees. He said that "Cutting one tree and replanting ten more makes no point." To avoid congestion it is not fesible to increase the road width and cut trees. He belives in saving all the trees and give pedestrians and cyclists first priority.
