Urban Transport & Connectivity
The Urban Transport is committed to contribute towards the Government of the Punjab’s vision 2020 that envisages developing the urban areas of Punjab as the engines of growth and sustainable development. It is striving to overcome prevailing issues of regulatory oversight; lack of engineering standards and specifications; low level of institutional capacities and technical expertise; dependence on obsolete technologies and equipment; and inefficient traffic solutions and poor traffic management. The sector primarily focuses on policy and strategic planning of transport for the cities of Punjab. Apart from carrying out analytical and reform work for transport system in Punjab, the Urban Unit has also been engaged in hosting workshops and seminars to share their vision and works with important stakeholders and general public.
