Sustainable Transport - Reclaiming Foothpaths

Tue, 29/03/2022 - 13:55
Author

Reclaiming footpaths has been an ongoing civic issue with no clear resolution. For many Indians (like Shanthi, a domestic worker) walking, with a combination of public transport, remains the preferred mode of getting to work. How safe are they walking to work? While we have excellent initiatives such as the T. Nagar Pedestrian plaza by Greater Chennai Corporation that helped to secure pedestrian rights, we not only need more such spaces but also an attitude shift amongst motorists and other road users. In addition, there is also a need for consistent enforcement.  #PedestrianRightOfWay
