Continued electrification and double or quadruple tracking of the railway lines within the ConnectedCity will be required to provide for the additional movement. The upgrading can be financed by capturing the uplift in land value which the new stations and services will bring. The increases in rolling stock needed for frequent or on-demand services will be covered by fares from the additional passengers. The fact that at present there are so few trains provides an opportunity to run much more frequent local services within the limits of the ConnectedCity. Five of the eight proposed new towns are on the less used east-west line.
With the increase in population the road network will have to be updgraded as even with greatly improved railways demand will increase. However, since most new building will be within the pedsheds, major improvements will be primarily to routes that serve them. Outside the pedsheds development along roads will not be permitted, to ensure each settlement remains distinct with open land surrounding it.
The strain on the bus services will be eased by the new rail services. Richshaws can be integrated into the pedestrian priority centres of the pedsheds, and serve the outer areas of these medium density settlements more efficiently than cars.
New commerce and educational facilities are located within pedsheds to ensure excellent public transport access and to provide a buffer between rail track and housing.
