Pedestrian Crossings

This raised crosswalk have been implemented in considerable locations. In such places, it is important to connect the raised pedestrian crossing to the footpath at the same level thus enabling the the pedestrians including the diasbled to use the cross walk. It is currently noticed that there is a gap between the raised crosswalk and the sidewalk and in some cases they are completely disjoint and at uneven levels. comment guidelines
