Kankaria Lake.. Potentially an international quality urban asset !
The goal is to develop Kankaria lakefront and make it … • A world class Public space • Memorable • Robust • Create an Anchor point for Eastern part of the city • Suitable to Indian culture and lifestyle
Initially the design proposal focused on organizing and developing the Kankaria lake edge – (the peripheral road)
The key issues addressed were: • Utilizing the complete right of way • Organizing the informal sector activities • Improving pedestrian / bicyclist safety • Providing organized parking • Providing important public amenities
Issues to be considered..... • Create a ‘Lake Front Precinct’ • Formulate a comprehensive strategy for such development • Pedestrianize the lake front • Explore idea of running a small train along the lakefront • Develop streets connected to the lake front • Create development opportunities in the surrounding areas • Identify underutilized land (Rail Yards, etc) and integrate with new development • Improve the area around the lake
Existing street network From Raipur Khokhra bridge From Maninagar
Difference in traffic volume around the lake edge Lesser traffic More traffic
Higher traffic volume – Key link from Maninagar to the central city To Raipur To Maninagar
Lesser traffic volume - Existing peripheral streets around the lake To New cloth Market Khokhra bridge To Maninagar
Potential to treat both sides differently A complete pedestrian area
Potential to treat both sides differently Lesser intensity vehicular access A complete pedestrian area
