In this image, the roads are replaced by the porous green pavements, which support the traffic load. These pavements being porous and also green helps to cool down the large area which is covered by road.As the longitudinal road is the only one which might have heavy traffic, so, this is only used for vehicular movements, other axis might be less in use as there would be new transportation ways.

The open space on the right hand side which is a public space, used as the urban farming. The cylindrical unit is a vertical plantation, where trees are grown in different levels to provide the greeneries and to cool down the area. These units also provides shades to the ground where people unite for some open musical, social and cultural programs.
