Construction of flyovers and the removal of traffic signals has failed to end the traffic mayhem in many areas

epa01330329 Traffic jam along a main road in New Delhi, India, 28 April 2008. The construction of flyovers and the removal of traffic signals have failed to end the traffic mayhem in many areas of the Indian capital with six million vehicles. Moving at a snail’s pace have become a common scene during the peak hours. A new transit scheme aimed at speeding up New Delhi's bus service (Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) corridor) increased the traffic chaos with thousands of motorists being stuck for hours in gridlocks over the past few days. Traffic snarls were witnesses along the 5.8 km stretch between Ambedkar Nagar and Moolchand in South Delhi, the first BRT corridor in the capital, as commuters were 'confused' about which lane to select for travelling. While all buses plying in the corridor will operate in the specified lane, the rest of the traffic flow, including two-wheelers, auto-rickshaws, cars and trucks will be confined to the motor vehicle lane. The three-minute-long signals on the intersections also added to the chaos as a large number of vehicles were seen at any given time at the signals. According to the Delhi-based Centre for Science and Environment that over 60% of people in Delhi either travel by bus, or bicycle or walk to work. Cars occupy 75% of the road space, but carry just about 20% of the people. Though Delhi has 21% of its area under roads. Estimated one thousand new personal vehicles mainly cars are added in the city each day and the situation is likely to get worse due to the increasing population and economic growth.
