Mumbai, being an important urban centre, has seen numerous mega investments in various sectors over the decades since independence. One of these sectors is transportation. Several large-scale projects have been done since the last 10-15 years. Some of these are the Bandra-Worli Sea link, the Eastern Freeway, the Monorail project and, now, the Metro Rail Project.
This semester exercise, proposed to develop a scheme for ‘Revamping’ BEST depots to create a ‘self-sustainable model’. This project aims to use maximum potential of BEST Bus depot plots, so that BEST can have a revenue generation module. The design proposal should have different zones for BEST Bus Depot with Buses circulation, stops & offices and other zones for commercial shops, offices etc. This is to be done to provide seamless & non-interactive movement between different zones. Proposed sites were: Juhu bus depot, Bandra West bus depot and Wadala bus depot.
