What is the identified problem?

The problems discussed in the existing the roadway system are the following:- Four way traffic systems: Unnecessarily long waiting time, delays, congestion, traffic jam. Flyovers: High cost, Lengthier construction periods, unnecessary mess in city due to construction. Roundabouts: Geometric delays due to intersection between circular and straight lanes.

Brief about Solution

down the millions  of deaths due road accidents each  year .  The proposed model reduces the number of collisions at the intersection of roundabout and the straight lanes.      
Key concepts at a glance:
•It is a type of cyclic intersection or junction in which road traffic is slowed and flows almost continuously in one direction around a central island to several exits onto the various intersecting roads.
•There are two main lanes in this system, inner and outer. The inner lane is a single lane allowing vehicles to move in a line, back to back. The outer is for the vehicles intended to go straight or right.
•At the four exit points, there are elongated U-turns, designed for smooth exiting of vehicles.
•At the center of the island, there are two special lanes designed so as to allow vehicles from the local roads to the highways, without having to go around the U-turns, thus saving time.

How well does the proposed solution enable great commuter experience?

It ll provide a great commuter experience because it ll save the valuable time of the commuter by providing him congestion free roads on one hand and safety of life on the other. The proposed model reduces the millions of collisions that take place on the indian roads each year thereby improving the commuter experience.

How attractive is this idea for partners from transportation, business, government, non profit or other sectors to get involved?

The proposed model would certainly require an investment from the government and always require the human resource to be employed to bring about alterations in the existing system of roadways.the government can employ the private sector to take care of these factors and the new developments. The non profit sector or the society in large is largely benifits from the proposed model

Environmental impact, whether the proposed idea in predominantly service based without adding more physical structures

the proposed model takes into account only the alterations in the existing model and there is no additions of any new physical structures.the four ways have now been designed in a new manner and there has been a shift in a role of services and responsibilities like the traffic policemen can now be trained and be asked to monitor the traffic.
