IRR/Old Airport Rd intersection Pedestrian Issues
Naveen, SB & I decided at short notice to take a walk around the Domlur IRR/OAR (Old airport road) interchange to see the pedestrian issues in that area. I am attaching the route we too walking all around. Some points that showed up
1. Bus stop towards the city on OAR spills onto the ramp. Bus stop towards marathahalli blocks traffic entering OAR.
2. Pedestrian have to walk on the street along the entire route including on the ramp with fast moving vehicles approaching us. Absolutely no safe walking place.
3. Have to brave traffic hurtling down the road on all sides to cross any stretch. Very dangerous.
Virtually no pedestrian infrastructure exists in this place & all interchanges in the city are going to have this problem as no effort is taken to put pedestrians in the plan at all anywhere!!!
Hebbal is worse & Nayandahalli has a chance to fix it but I am sure BDA wont!
