Vibrant streetscapes democratize mobility, increase urban biodiversity and help resolve flooding.

18th JUNE ROAD is located in the heart of the Panaji City, a conservation area lined with restaurants and businesses, attracting both tourists and locals. To address inclusive mobility and urban flooding in Panjim, several strategies were conceived to be implemented in a phased manner through a participatory process.


01. Pedestrianising 18th June Road and redesigning the street to transform the central spine of downtown Panjim into a vibrant public space.

02. Incorporating a giant stormwater collector, with swales, into the new street design to ensure that the city’s downtown no longer floods in the monsoons.

03. Re-routing traffic and street parking management for the entire downtown, to improve mobility and access in Panjim.

04. Street design using universal design principles would ensure greater social inclusion (for persons of all ages, gender and for the differently-abled as well).

05. Encouraging activities on the street that create a vibrant public street for tourists and locals alike.
