1 Asia BRT Conference HUBLI-DHARWAD BRTS PROJECT Presented by: Commissioner, DULT

2 Growth direction: along the corridor between the two cities. NAVANAGAR DHARWAD NAVALGUND HUBLI KALGHATGI KUNDGOL INDIA KARNATAKA DHARWAD DISTRICT  Twin cities separated by about 20 km.  Single municipal area: 202 sqkm  Population : 0.94 million(2011)  Density: 4678 persons per  Hubli: commercial centre and business hub of the region.  Dharwad: administrative seat of the District and Educational hub of the region. SOME FACTS

3 Travel Characteristics Two lane road. Average time taken: Peak period : 64 mins Public transport: main mode. 0.17 million use PT every day. PT operator: NWKRTC, a state government undertaking. 6000-7000 PHPDT. Buses comprises 7 % of total traffic along the corridor; carry 70 % of the passengers.

4 Context  Project sanctioned for widening of two lanes to four lanes.  Overall PT mode share for the twin cities: 30%  Two-wheelers: 67% of total vehicles.  Vehicle growth rate: 9.5 %  Mobility plan projected drop in PT share to 25% by 2028. Concerns for PT 45% of fleet over-aged, Congested buses, poor infrastructure, lack of last mile connectivity.

5 ISSUES Wouldn’t widening to four lanes be enough? Is BRT required at this point of time? BRT-land acquisition costs, resettlement issues.

6 Present V/C : 1.3 Even with 4 laning : V/C > 1 before 2020. With BRTS, V/C : 0.84 in 2031. Wouldn’t widening to four lanes be enough?

7 Is BRT required at all? BRT-land acquisition; costs, resettlement issues. High EIRR( 29.5%) Benefits: savings in vehicle operating costs, commuter time, benefits due to accident reduction, savings due to reduction in carbon emissions etc. Total benefits valued at US $ 611 million in present value terms. Makeover of PT required to retain present share; to attract more commuters. Public transport needs focus - NOW not LATER.
