For Large interventions: - The street is divided into 3 significant parts – a walking lane on either side of the formal shops, a cycling and tuk-tuk lane, and a dedicated vending lane. By orienting each vendor module at a 30-degree angle to each other, we are opening up the street for social interaction. We have made sure to design the Sadar Bazaar Main Street with 6 meters of clear space for fire-tender movement. For Extra Large interventions: - At the neighbourhood level, we have considered a “block”, and proposed a design where vehicular circulation is limited to the peripheries. a time-based circulation, such that the streets contained go-downs can be accessed by vehicles for loading and unloading, only early in the morning, and late in the evening. Houses within the block can be accessed by residents through a car-sticker system, thereby ensuring smooth circulation and an emphasis on keeping Sadar Bazaar Main Street pedestrian-friendly.
As the name suggests, SADAK aims to pedestrianize the historic Sadar Bazaar market-street in Old Gurgaon. Sadar Bazaar offers a chance to reimagine not only mobility practices and public-space planning in NCR, but to find solutions for safe, hygienic and organized street vending. For Small interventions: - The smallest interventions are in the form of modular infrastructures, designed to provide the market with a cohesive service system and visual language. For Medium interventions: - At two significant points of Sadar Bazaar Main Street, we have programmed interactive, play-centric nodes. One is at Jalebi Chowk, where a large tree and a famous Jalebi Shop already draws people towards the node. The other node is closer to Sadar Bazaar Masjid. Both nodes can be seen from the outer peripheral road, thereby drawing in visitors. The idea of designing these nodes was to “bring play onto the streets”, as the only park available for the entire market is towards one end of the street, therefore not easily accessible by all stakeholders.
