High vehicle density added with lack of pedestrian safety measures have led to an increasing congestion and accident rates particularly at the intersection in the city of Varanasi, and thus has been an area of major concerns. To tackle this issue and rejuvenate the oldest Indian living city of Varanasi, Nagar Nigam Varanasi has proposed to improve aesthetics of certain identified intersections with footpaths, pedestrian crossings and improved traffic movement. Institute of Urban Transport (India) was entrusted to undertake this improvement plan for the identified junctions in the city.
The main objective of intersection design is to facilitate the safe and efficient movements of all vehicles including heavy vehicles (buses, trucks etc.) and NMT (bicycles, pedestrians etc.). The upgraded design options so made have considered the following key points:

a. No damage to green belt
b. Improvisation of all the medians for smooth traffic flow
c. Improvisation of existing NMT facilities
d. Smoothening of all entry exit curves
e. Providing free left turns based on space availability and traffic flow
f. Improvisation of existing pedestrian crossing facilitating with pedestrian refuge

As first phase of this study based on the reconnaissance survey, data analysis, stakeholder consultations and expert analysis all the below mentioned six intersections have been redesigned. The new circulation plans conceptualised are as follows:

1- Nadesar Crossing (Design Options)
2- Englishiya Line & 3- Cantt Crossing (Design Options)
4- Andhra Pul Crossing & 5- Chaukaghat Crossing (Design Options)
6- Police lines Crossing (Design Options)
7- Kachari Crossing
8- Pandeypur Crossing

Complete Plan proposal of junctions can be downloaded hear. Varanasi Junction Plan Report

Please give your feedback, Ideas, suggestions in concept designs of the Development of the above mentioned junctions.

Detailed Concept design is attached as PDF file.

Respected Sir,

Bahot ummid k sath likh rahi hu k aap koi na koi sahi nirnay lenge : Ye Ayodhya mein Mandir ya Masjid ka vivad ab tak kyo chale aarha hai. Kya Bhagwan Ram ne bola ha ki mere liye wahi pe hi mandir banwaya jaye ya fir Allah ne bola? Kya hum Super speciality hospital nai banwa sakte taki sabhi dharmo ko logo ka free mein treatment ho sake? Anathalay nai banwa sakte? Ismein na Ramji ko koi aapatti hogi na Allah ko.

All encroachment of roads and footpaths has to be removed. There should be a dedicated 'squad' whose only job should be to ensure that all public spaces, including roads and footpaths, are made encroachment-free.
Auto rickshaws stop at road-junctions to drop/take passengers, creating traffic jams. A better traffic policing can tackle this problem.

Pedestrian should be given chance to cross the road through under ground Subway only. Heavy vehicle/ public transport should be allowed only on surface road and all private Car should follow fly over. This should be applicable for all junction.
