Bhubaneswar Municipal Corporation (BMC) Commissioner Sanjib Mishra said the civic body would streamline the public transport system, road network, parking, bus shelters and traffic signaling.
Following this, the corporation would add 60 more city buses to the present fleet of 125, he said.
The BMC will improve the system based on a survey prepared by Centre for Environmental Planning and Technology (CEPT) University, Ahmedabad, which was hired by ministry of urban development (MoUD). The report has identified several areas for improvement.
The civic body would use the report, which contains detailed information about the city's transport system, to improve the infrastructure. It has pointed out serious lacunae in parking of buses and auto-rickshaws, said Mishra.
The city needs to improve the road network as the survey points out that only 12 percent area of the city is used for roads. According to the standard set by MoUD, a city like Bhubaneswar needs to have 13 to 18 percent of its areas covered by road networks. The civic body needs to ensure this in order to enable smooth flow of traffic.
On the parking front, the city road network has only 43 percent of paid parking space while the standard is 50 percent. Secondly, the parking fee structure also needs to be revised, the survey said.
