Spatial trip pattern of rourkela

Manchanda, Manas and Panda, Usharani (2007) Spatial trip pattern of rourkela. BTech thesis.



Urbanization has significant impact on urban activities and traffic and travel patterns in cities. Cities are experiencing processes of densification and spatial expansion. With rise in urban activities, trip rates have moved upwards and transport demand is rising significantly, poor public and transportation not only have throttled the movement but also have pushed up personalized travel through private vehicles. Transport impact due to rapid urbanization in Rourkela has been taken up to highlight the spatial scenarios of trip rates and their other concerned attitudes so as to provide proper input for better transport planning. Spatial trip rate pattern is a model to explain, understand and predict the level of interaction between different geographic locations Transportation in cities plays a vital role in providing necessary access and mobility to urbanites. It has become uneconomical and environmental issue if it is not balanced in terms of different systems. If mass public transport system is not developed matching the pace of city growth, personalized vehicle movement will increase leading to traffic congestion and pollution. Analysis in this paper reflects trip rates. Trip rate characteristics and mode usage, in the urban domain. Purpose and mode based trip rates are quite useful in framing strategies for urban transportation in an effective way.
