City of Nanded


Nanded, India (photo: Tom Godefrooij)Nanded is a small Indian city with a population of 250,000 people. In 2007, the city of Nanded initiated the Improvement of Movement Network project involving the reconstruction of 95 km of urban roads, with inclusion of dedicated cycle tracks and footpaths funded by the Government of India under the JNNURM project. The city of Nanded aimed this redevelopment to celebrate the 300th anniversary of Sikh guru in 2008 and thus Nanded  offered a showcase for cycling and walking inclusive road design to the many expected visitors. The city has recognised the need for a more comprehensive vision on its urban transport system and the role of the various modes of transport within the context of envisaged urban developments.
