This is a basic need

This is totally required.  It can not be sacrificed for roads. It is a right assured by IRC and local govts should not come in the way at all.

Friends, New footpath /


New footpath / sidewalk technology exists which ensures demarcation as a foot path and is at the same time seamlessly on same level as roads. Since such foot paths also double up as storm water drain inlet points, one can have three birds "killed" with one technology!
