Preparation of Master Plan for Pourashavas under Upazila Towns Infrastructure Development Project, Package-5
Determine the study area based on existing condition, demand of the pourashava and potential scope for future development. Carry out detailed Socio-Economic Demographic and Topographic Survey of the pourashava area following approved format and also collect data from primary and secondary sources. Analyze such data and information, find out possible area of intervention to forecast future population of each pourashava (15-20 years), vis-a-vis assess their requirement for different services, physical and social infrastructure facilities, employment generation, housing, right of way and land requirement for the existing and proposed roads, drains, playgrounds, recreation centres and other environmental and social infrastructure. Identify and investigate the existing natural and man-made drains, natural river system, assess the extent and frequency of flood, determine area of intervention. Study the contour and Topographic Maps produced by the relevant agencies and also review any previous drainage Master Plan available for the Pourashavas. Prepare a comprehensive (storm water) Drainage Master Plan for a plan period of 20 years. In such exercise consider all relevant issues including discharge calculation, catchment areas, design of main and secondary drains along with their sizes, types and gradients and retention areas with preliminary cost estimates for the proposed drainage system. Collect and assess the essential data relating to existing transport Land Use Plan, relevant regional and national highway development plans, accident statistics, number and type of vehicles registered for each pourashava. Study the viability of different solutions for traffic management and develop a practical short term traffic management plan, including one way systems, restricted access for large vehicles, improved signal system traffic islands, roundabouts, pedestrian crossings, deceleration lanes for turning traffic, suitable turning radius, parking policies and separation of pedestrians and rickshaws etc. Assess the non-pedestrian traffic movements that are dominated by cycle rickshaw. Special recommendations should be made as to how best to utilize this form to transport without causing unnecessary delays to other vehicles. Proposals should also consider pedestrians and their safety, with special attention for the children. Assess the current land use with regard to road transportation, bus & truck stations, railway stations etc, and recommend actions to optimize this land use. Prepare a Road net work Plan based on topographic and base Map prepared under the Project. Recommend road development standards which will serve as a guide for the long and short term implementation of road. Also suggest Traffic and Transportation Management Plan and also suggest a traffic enforcement measure to be taken. Prepare the Master Plan with all suitable intervention, supported by appropriate strategic policy, outline framework, institutional arrangement and possible source of fund for effective implementation of the plan. Make a total list of primary and secondary roads, drains and other social infrastructures for each pourashava for a plan period of next 20 years. Examine and classify according to the existing condition, propose long, medium and short term plan and estimate cost for improvement of the drain and road alignment and other infrastructures. In line with the proposed Master Plan propose a Ward Action Plan with list of priority schemes for the development of roads, drains, traffic management and other social infrastructures for implementation during the first five years of plan period. Organize with the help of concerned pourashava at least 2 public consultation meeting/seminar one for discussion on Interim Report and the other on draft Final Report on the proposed Master Plan. Integrate beneficiary's point of view in the plan with utmost careful consideration
