India: Strengthening Climate Change Resilience in Urban India - Strengthening Smart Urban Mass Rapid Transit and Climate Change Resilience in the National Capital Region (Subproject 3)

Sovereign (Public) Project | 49106-005 Status: Active

The subproject is intended to provide a targeted assistance for ensuring climate change resilience and universal accessibility through enhanced multi-modal integration of the ensuing project, suitable for the context of the RRTS which is envisioned to be a new type of urban transport in India. For this purpose, the subproject will review the existing transit-oriented urban planning approaches of the NCRTC and, where feasible, propose pilot studies for selected station areas or towns. It will also support the use of advanced technologies for infrastructure design and construction process management, specifically, Building Information Modelling (BIM) and dedicated mapping survey technologies.

Description The subproject is intended to provide a targeted assistance for ensuring climate change resilience and universal accessibility through enhanced multi-modal integration of the ensuing project, suitable for the context of the RRTS which is envisioned to be a new type of urban transport in India. For this purpose, the subproject will review the existing transit-oriented urban planning approaches of the NCRTC and, where feasible, propose pilot studies for selected station areas or towns. It will also support the use of advanced technologies for infrastructure design and construction process management, specifically, Building Information Modelling (BIM) and dedicated mapping survey technologies.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy As this is the first time that such technologies are applied for a large-scale urban transport project in India, feasibility assessment will be done. Since the total of three RRTS corridors are being planned by the NCRTC for immediate implementation including the Delhi- Meerut corridor, the subproject has a potentially large demonstration effect for the NCR in terms of sharing good practices in innovation in project preparation and management and enhancing climate chance resilience.
