Exclusive Lanes for Two and Three Wheelers
An Inch of Space in the street frontage designates a life-time of fortune – A Shanghainese saying

With Increasing population and number of vehicles in Asian cities, the demand of more space has been the most common debated issue. With increasing environmental and climate implications, cities have realized that they cannot sustain the vehicle growths by providing more space. With available road space being contested by all modes, often the slower and non motorized modes lose out. Two and Three wheelers often constitute a major chunk of the accidents and injury share. In order to reduce such accidents often cities adopt contradictory policies such as banning two and three wheelers usage in some streets and some provide exclusive lanes. China and Malaysia have some interesting experiences in this regard. Some of the documents below provide some interesting perspective on two and three wheelers lanes.
