The Bombay Greenway Project

Building Giants

Turning the railway into a greenway...
The Railway in Bombay defines the linear city & dictates how more than 7.5 million (of the total population of 21 million) people travel daily! In a city deprived of public space (less than 1 sq m/person of open public space), The Railway into Greenway proposal envisions a 21st century greenway over the existing railway lines; 114kms of continuous, flat, traffic & stress free space to encourage active modes of transportation & healthy city living!

A City Divided: The railways run through the city like a river: long & linear holding the city together like a spine! Unfortunately, the City stands divided into East & West, the South & West being the more exclusive, being closer to the developed seafront. All peak hour travel is North-South in the morning & South-North in the evening.

The Design: The design of the Greenway allows for a multiplicity of uses that a modern city like Bombay should expect from its public spaces: transformation of the railways into a vibrant park for commuters and visitors, cultural and retail re-invigoration, E-W connectivity, environmental restoration, green transport.
