Just Only a Start

Though the intent is right, this appears another half-baked effort in isolation & it's success seems doubtful to me.

When I queried why reversal of one-ways on many roads was not included in the policy since pedestrians were forced to walk long distances to board buses, it was noted down as a suggestion, without elaboration or explanation/s.

When someone queried about bicycle facilities, we were told that "another" policy for NMT /bicycles was also in the offing soon.

When the question of traffic restraining measures (such as high parking cost/s) was raised since excessive traffic effected pedestrians & PT users, it was pointed out that shopkeepers had agitated in the past about loss of business with such moves.

When the question of street parking facilities for bicycles was raised, no satisfactory answers were received.

And so on so forth.

At least, it's a start & there is some hope that pedestrian facilities might receive more attention than in the past.

Did anybody attend? I sent a suggestion email yesterday (may be too late?) and  got a response that is probably a standard reply. Here it is:

"

Thanks for sharing your views on the policies prepared by DULT. We would study your ideas and consider it suitably.
