Sustainable Transport - No need foot-over bridges

Chennai's Smart Urban Road Project intends to build several foot-over bridges and pedestrian crossings on several major arterial roads. However, rather than walking longer distances in the hot sun to access an over-bridge, climbing up and down uneven, unclean stairs, and wondering about safety, most people prefer braving the traffic. Foot over-bridges and subways sideline pedestrians; are inaccessible to persons with disabilities; and place an unreasonable burden on pedestrians. Pedestrians have a right to safe, clean, accessible roads too. What about you - do you prefer foot-over bridges/subways or crossing on the surface?
