The eastern part of the city does not have a continuous artery such as Ashram Road on the west, which provides continuous north-south access. East River Drive addressed this need making it possible to travel uninterrupted from the airport, in the north, to Ambedkar Bridge.
The SRFD streets on the east banks have a 30m RoW. All SRFD streets have dedicated pedestrian paths with cycle tracks, parking bays, and 6 m/20ft wide carriageways. Access lanes on one or both sides of the streets provide entries to the existing development and when required, the proposed riverfront development. The infrastructure services run below the access lanes, and the stormwater line runs below the central verge.
