Transport Sector in The National Capital Region

The Regional Plan-2001 for NCR notified in January 1989 formulated a set of policies for the control of land uses and development of infrastructure in the region. The Functional Plan on Transport prepared and approved by the NCR Planning Board in 1995 envisaged an organized transport network to improve accessibility and the movement of goods and passengers within the region. The Functional Plan on Transport suggested construction of road and rail linkages along the high-density routes, in and around the Capital and also in the National Capital Region.
