Either these footpaths are used by two wheelers to reach to the front at the single junction without considering if a people are working on their or not.
The Event will start on Monday at 5:30 pm from the following places : Join the movement
Outside Sankey Tank Gate (Malleshwaram Side)
Bhashyam Circle (Sadashivnagar).
Bellary Raod (after Kaveri Theatre, Airforce Station, Hebbal, after Mekhri Circle underpass).
Lingarajapuram (at flyover near ST Charles School).
The team is planning:
Go to a few major traffic junction and try to cross the roads and track the time taken to cross the roads.
What Bangalore Citizens are looking for
Reduce the number of private vehicles and educate people to make use of the public transport with Government plying more buses in the respective areas. Car pooling should be considered.
Penalties on people who drive their vehicle on footpath.
Remove subways and skywalks, as old citizens will not be able to take them due to health issues. Instead introduce Pedestrian signal at regular intervals on all the roads.
Widening the footpaths for the citizens then for vehicles.
