Traffic police install railings at Marine Drive to stop jaywalking

The city traffic police are in the process of constructing railings on the divider along Marine Drive to stop people from jaywalking across the stretch and prevent accidents.

After two women were run over by cars while crossing the road at Marine Drive recently, the traffic police had written to the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) in March to construct railings on the divider along the stretch. According to the traffic police, the construction of the railings on the 3.6-km stretch – from the Girgaum-end near Taraporewala Aquarium, up till Intercontinental Hotel – will be completed within the next week.
