NMT Infrastructure in India: Investment, Policy and Design

One of three reports which evaluate and summarise options for low carbon city planning, non-motorised transport (NMT) and infrastructure risks due to climate variability in India. The reports were published as part of the project on ‘Promoting Low Carbon Transport in India.

This report identifies gaps in the implementation of policy for NMT-use in Indian cities. It evaluates policy and design interventions for the implementation of projects and considers their impact on road users. It highlights that NMT is still a dominant mode of transport in Indian cities but that that major gaps exist at the level of data collection and demand estimation for non-motorised traffic.
