Masterplan for Road Network, Nanded, Maharashtra

Client: Nanded Waghala Municipal Corporation
Length: 48km

Nanded is a historic religious town located on the banks of the River Godavari in Maharashtra. It provides a typical example of small town India. Planned interventions are lacking and where present - inadequate.

The proposed street network reflects the diversity in user profile and street activity seen in the town. It is intended that the project be a model for other towns of similar sizes in India.

Key features of the project include:

  1. Rationalisation of Motor Vehicle Lanes to accommodate all users
  2. Separate lanes for Non-motorised Vehicles
  3. Pedestrian precinct around the Sachkhand Gurudwara
  4. Innovative street cross-sections to incorporate tree plantation, hawkers, On street parking, para transport stands, street furniture, bus shelters, public toilets etc.

The project is being implemented through a public private partnership between IL&FS and the Nanded Waghala Municipal Corporation under the Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission. We have worked very closely with a range of experts on this project including IIT Delhi and I-CE, Holland.
