Delhi Gate Redesign

New Dehli, India ,2021

Re-Marking Streets and Intersections with temporary #lighterquickercheaper measures are a quick and economical way to test and showcase potential change in street geometry.

In this #streetexperiment, the World Resources Institute @wri_india, in cooperation with Delhi Traffic Police, recently redesigned the #DelhiGate intersection to make it safer and more accessible for non-motorized traffic. Using barricades and cones, they reduced the conflict area by nearly 70%. The reclaimed area was painted and now serves as colorful waiting areas for pedestrians and cyclists.
The trial will remain in place for a month and be evaluated. If the changes prove effective, they will be made permanent!
