Patna needs strong public transport system: Experts - The Times of India: "Many short-term plans to clear the chock-a-block situation were proposed at the conference. "Road surface improvement, signalizing intersections, putting in place circulation plans such as one-way streets or vehicular segregation, traffic calming techniques, developing and barricading footpaths and foot overbridges and establishment of a single-window traffic management centre can cater to many problems," said Ishita Chauhan, an urban transport expert, Institute of Urban Transport, adding that a cost-effective and systemic public transport system was the need of the hour. "Since Patna is a longitudinal city, a one-kilometre radius zone on the arterial roads would cover the entire city," she said."
