The new international airport road has no skywalks for pedestrains and neighbouring residents to cross roads at Kodigehalli Gate,Esteem Mall Junction,Dasarahalli Road(Opp Godrej Apartments),Byatarayanapura,GKVK and Kogilu-New international Airport Road junction thus jeopardising the lives of people in the surrounding areas.,Especially those using it in the night when taxis,vehicles ram in at speeds in excess of 100 kmph.Can i get directions on the concerned person to contact and for knowledge on any action plan to safeguard the lives by NHAI or state/central govt

Same is the case with Hosur Road

On the 10 Km stretch from Silk Board to Electronic City, NHAI/ BETL has built just 4 pedestrian subways! Are the people supposed to walk 2.5 Kms to cross the road? No surprise they are hardly used, with people forced to resort to take so much risks simply to cross the road.

This is in stark contrast to the Old Mahabalipuram road (or the IT highway) in chennai, where pedestrian overbridges have been provided/planned every 300 metres or so.

What about signal free ORR

Not sure what would happen to ORR when it comes full signal free at every junction. Are pedestrians going to risk their life everytime they have to cross the roads?

Ped Crossing needed at some more points

Esteem Mall Junction has a Pedestrian Crossing Signal and  Traffic Signals are present at Kodige Halli Junction and GKVK Junction. However Crossing the road in between two signals points is very very difficult (impossible) during Peak  hour traffic. It is not fair to expect people walk almost a KM to cross a strech of Road.  Ped Crossings is also badly needed at Mekri Circle, Veterinary college  on Bellary Road (International Airport Road).

Some time back there was a suggestion of building ped skywalks every 100 Meters at this forum.  Or atleast there should be a  push button ped signals or Zebra Crossings.  I am not sure if NHAI has any specifications for Sky Walks and Ped Signals. I could not easily locate anything related to pedestrian crossings at their site. you can find the contact information at http://www.nhai.org/piu.asp .
"National Highways Authority of India" is also on facebook
