WRI made this possible, finally the dreaded crossing at SV Road-Turner Road-Linking Road Junction is much safer for pedestrians. Check the below video, the work is commendable and wish they do this for more such crossings.
More than half of all road-related deaths in Mumbai are that of pedestrians, and over 30% of those deaths occur at intersections. This is the transformation story of HP Junction in Bandra, which sees more than 5000 vehicles and an equal number of pedestrians during rush hour.
In 2017 WRI India partnered with Mumbai Traffic Police and the MCGM to redesign the junction, for safer pedestrian and vehicular movement. A successful trial using traffic barricades, cones and paint was conducted to test the design. The changes have since been made permanent.
