KOCHI: The Public Works Department (PWD) has come up with a proposal to build foot overbridges at 15 places in the city, including at a few highway junctions.
These would be built on an iron frame, so that they can be dismantled and put together again if any modification is required. The foot overbridges would considerably benefit pedestrians who now have to wait for many minutes at each junction/busy stretch till there is a lull in the tide of vehicles. Care would have to be taken so that the access points are not very steep, so as to benefit the elderly and the differently abled. The feasibility study would be done by DRIC Board - Design Research Investigation and Quality Control Board
