Ahmedabad BRTS routes in perspective, with reference to the Ahmedabad Metro that's presently U/C.
The BRTS lines will feed the Metro, and vice versa:

MEGA (Gandhinagar - Ahmedabad Metro Rail System) construction has commenced.

Phase I of the project, as recommended by DMRC will be completely elevated

N-S = 32.65km, 31 stations
E-W = 10.90km, 11 stations

Potential for expansion towards Dholera (SIR) in phase II

Heres a map from when DMRC first conducted their feasibility reports, showing possible Metro routes along with BRTS.

Get set for metro trial

Anyways, this comes completely out of the blue. I had gone for a site visit arranged by my college. Indira bridge, on the Sabamati along the Airport Gandhinagar road is undergoing expansion from existing 4 lanes to 6 lanes. So we had gone to see the piling work below the bridge. That's when I saw this on the left side of the riverbank.

Mass rapid transport-friendly development plan of Ahmedabad released in February 2013:

DP Proposes Affordable Housing, Cap Of 70 m. On All Buildings

Source





Ahmedabad: About 100 sq km of land, mostly encircling the 76-km SP Ring Road apart from land of 38 closed mills in Ahmedabad, has been unlocked as affordable housing zone for 15 lakh units in a dream draft development plan (DP) releasedby AhmedabadUrban DevelopmentAuthority (Auda) on Friday.

The plan, which follows the principles of transit-oriented development (TOD), proposes to raise floor space index (FSI) dramatically to allow high-rise development in a city witnessing unplanned horizontal growth.

An FSI of 4 has been proposed within the 200 metres flanks of BRTS (bus) and MRTS (rail) corridors. Besides, 10 sq km area surrounding the Sabarmati riverfront will have the highest possible FSI of 5.4, allowing nearly 22-storey buildings.

Ashram road — the original business artery of the city on Sabarmati’s west bank — has been chosen as the stretch where Ahmedabadwill getitsown Manhattan — a realbusiness district. Similarly, the eastern stretch between Dudheshwar bridge and Shahpur willseesomeof Gujarat’s tallest structuresbeing erected.However, Auda proposes to restrict the height of buildings to 70 metres.

Developerswillbe allowed to buy additional FSIin R1 andR2 residential zones, where the existing permissible construction is 1,800 sq ft and 1,200 sq ft on a plot of 1,000 sq ft, respectively. Auda has allowed developers to buy FSI up to 2.7 in R1 and up to 1.8 in R2 zones.

There will be concessions for those who make affordable houses, especially 36 sq m and 80 sq m dwellings. There is a separate General Development Control Regulation (GDCR) norm for the walled city and for areas around the Sabarmati riverfront. “We no longer have one building law for all parts of the city,” says D Thara, chief executive officer of Auda
Times View

Does Ahmedabad really have the infrastructure ready to take the vertical growth that is being planned? There are serious doubts that Ahmedabad has the carrying capacity for all the growth that is being envisaged. Water supply, sewage and storm water drains, lack of footpaths and parking space are issues even today. The city has only six elevator inspectors for an estimated 15,000 lifts. Many of the over 1,200 high-rises are functional without even having building use (BU) permissions. There is no point building castles in the air without getting the fundamentals of city planning right. Hail heritage!

Owners of 1,100 heritage properties in the walled city will now be able to sell, transfer or lease out additional FSI to developers in the form of Transfer of Development Rights (TDR) which can be utilized anywhere in the city. The money from the TDR sale has to be used for conservation of the heritage structure.


IN A NUTSHELL
  • Compulsory solar water heaters atop all hotels, hostels, hospitals and public buildings
  • Discouraging use of farmland for other purposes outside city limits
  • Improvement of green cover from 4% to 15% No reflective material on high-rise buildings
  • No heavy vehicles including, state transport buses inside city
  • APMC to be shifted out of city Double parking space; promote multilevel parking
  • Separate GDCR for walled city
  • Water harvesting mandatory for new buildings

  • Within 200 metre radius along the corridor one can construct buildings of up to 4 FSI
  • Any extra FSI above 1.8 to be purchased at 40 per cent of the prevailing Jantri rate in the area
  • High-density residential dwellings and offices along transport corridors
  • Affordable houses will be sold extra 2.2 FSI at highly concessional rates above the FSI of 1.8
  • A total of 4,768 hectares on BRTS corridor and 2,409 hectares on Metro corridor will be open to development with FSI up to 4
