One thing that really fascinates me .. is how cities are planned ?
i mean if we truly see .. there are some citiees which are planned ..
yes there are some in
I mean ppl staying in
would not actually believe that cities could be planned .. but than they can be ..
some of the best planned cities in the world are .. London , Shanghai,Singapore,
and many more ...these cities have well defined commercial, residential,entertainment
and other zones in the city .. there is so much emphasis on planning ..
some of the cities are so planned that .. that at any given time there are almost equal number of
people in all major areas of the city ... the commercial,residential and other sectors
are equally distributed to facilitate this
well i m telling u abt this coz traveling, walking and in fact living has become almost impossible
in Mumbai ...trains are crowded .. roads are jammed and there are ppl all around and
apart from the influx of ppl in this city .. another problem with this city is its crumbling
infrastructure and bad design (planning)
The problem with mumbai s infrastructure has always been that the city travels in
one directions at a time ..
it is either townwards in the morning or .. outta town in the evening ..
the reason off course is the fact that the city centre .. which includes the commercial hub
for which it is known .. which still employs the largest number of people is in south
and as and when the land prices escalated in the southern area ..
and Mumbai had only one direction to grow.. so the residential areas kept moving .. upwards ..
and to such an extent .. that at one time .. almost all of Mumbai travelled southwards ..in the morning ..
anyways .. the authorities finally woke up .. and there have been infrastructure and transportation plans ..
like MUTP and MUIP to make mumbai a better city ..
the shifting of commercial areas to BKC, SEEPZ and New Bombay etc. is one such step ..
widening of roads . better planning in terms of residential areas ..extra rail lines , flyovers , slum rehab ,
clearing mill lands etc .. are projects which i hope will result in a better mumbai.....
to tell u a few facts abt some cities which are well planned and are Indian ..
There can never be a traffic jam at connaught place which is the city centre of
and each sector has parks, markets and other facilities.
which are very well planned ..
