GANGTOK (India): Comprehensive Mobility Plan

The Comprehensive Mobility Plan (CMP) for Gangtok aims at creating an integrated land use and transport plan which is to be used as a guideline for building an organized transport system to achieve an efficient mobility goal for the city. The
mobility plan will emphasize on the movement of people and goods by all means including motorized vehicles and non motorized modes, giving priority to public transit.

The need for the CMP arises from the fact that the transport improvement projects underway or proposed in Gangtok are only projects viewed in isolation and not visualized as a part of an overall transport plan for the city. Also CMP is considered as the prerequisites for funding under JNNURM and each selected project for funding should be a part of the Comprehensive Mobility Plan.
