The project of DIMTS was considered by UTTIPEC Working Group II-B in its meeting dt. 20.11.08
Working Group recommended the project for approval with following concerns/observations.
v The traffic speed, as expected to be 40 Km./h, on the interference-free down ramp may not be correct, especially during lean period.
v The weaving length of 150 meters may cause congestion during the peak hour on Outer ring road and may create unsafe conditions during the lean period.
v At the point of merger of ramp loop with the outer ring road the available carriage way space of 10mts may not be adequate to accommodate through traffic comprising of public transport, personalized vehicles and non motorized vehicles.
v The proposed new link road is likely to have additional induced traffic which has not been accounted for in traffic projections.
v The proposed link road including the ramp loop may attract public opinion due to shift in function of the existing internal colony road to local area link.
v DIMTS shall interact with the local residents to convince them about the benefits of the proposal before implementing the project.
v All road geometrics and engineering design parameters are to be ensured by DIMTS as per norms.
