Mumbai to get safer to walk, as experts to redesign junctions for pedestrians

Fifty-two per cent of people who die on the city’s roads are pedestrians, reveal Mumbai traffic police statistics. This happens because Mumbai’s streets are yet to be pedestrian-friendly, having the least number of crossings to enable a safe walk.

To change things in favour of pedestrians, New York-based National Association of City Transportation Officials (NACTO), Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) and Mumbai traffic police have begun redesigning some parts of the city.
