rThe Delhi Development Authority (DDA) has decided to draw up the mobility plan for the new sectors that will be developed on the outskirts of the city as part of the land pooling policy. The authority has issued a tender to hire a consultant to prepare a detailed mobility plan for Zone L, which includes 30 urbanized villages located in southwest Delhi, near Najafgarh.
A senior DDA official said: “These are areas where new developments will take place. The project is to develop shopping centers, business districts and residential complexes there in the coming years. For this, we need a mobility plan within the area and to ensure good connectivity with the rest of the city.
There are 95 urbanized villages spread over five development zones of the DDA where the land pooling policy, approved in 2018, will be implemented. Of the five zones, zone L, spread over a total of 22,874 hectares, has the maximum number of villages.
According to the call for tenders (RFP) launched by the DDA, the consultant will have to prepare a detailed project report (DPR) for the transport network and the transport system in accordance with the current master plan. The DPR will also take into account the estimated growth in traffic volume due to new developments over the next three decades.
The consultant should assess the type of public transport that will be needed to serve the population of this area once it is fully developed. Currently, the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation’s network has reached Najafgarh.
