HYDERABAD: The Hyderabad Metropolitan Development Authority (HMDA), with assistance from the Ministry of Urban Development, Government of India, is preparing a Comprehensive Transportation Plan for the Hyderabad Metropolitan Development Area (HMDA).
The Comprehensive Transportation Study is being conducted for the entire HMDA covering Hyderabad district, substantial parts of Rangareddy district and portions of Medak, Nalgonda and Mahaboobnagar districts. This study is intended to develop a comprehensive transportation plan for short, medium and long term periods for HMDA and provide necessary transport infrastructure in an integrated manner to efficiently handle the ever-increasing traffic and transportation problems within HMDA.
LEA Associates South Asia Pvt. Ltd., (LASA) in joint venture with LEA International Ltd, Canada has been engaged as consultants to conduct this Comprehensive Transportation Study. Several field surveys are to be required to be undertaken and home interview survey (HIS) of selected/ sampled households is one of the important components of the study. The survey work began about three days ago and is being conducted by the Development and Research Services Private Ltd (DRS) under the direct supervision of LASA.
Over 30,000 households will be sampled and interviewed during the course of the home interview survey covering areas under the GHMC, Secunderabad Cantonment Board, villages within HADA and many villages within HMDA.
The HMDA has appealed to all the residents to extend cooperation to the field investigators and facilitate the proper conduct of the interviews and gathering necessary information from the sampled households.
The information collected through this survey will be utilised to estimate the travel demand, appreciate travel pattern and plan for better transport infrastructure in the Hyderabad Metropolitan Area, according to HMDA officials.
