The roads before and after this stretch is very wide and this is a
very traffic intense area.

Considering not just the schools in that area but also the the
children who commute through this road every day and the rest of the
people its definitely a noble thing for the landowners to come up and
give way.

And please.. bringing in UK/ Europe for these kind of issues in India
is just being silly.

The comment posted by Sri is to be considered before taking up the
widening of Santhome High Road for reasons said therein. In fact, if I
remember correctly such a traffic arrangement was there in place some
time back.

yes that's right. In the UK roads are barely two lanes. The way the regulate the traffic is phenomenal. Road widening or flyover construction is not the only solution to traffic bottlenecks. Most countries in the world don't have flyovers in the city for decongesting junctions.

It would be more useful to clean and widen the beach road that runs parrallel to
Santhome High road. Santhome high road has many educational institutions of
great repute, well maintained churches and other beautiful buildings. It will be a
shame to encroach on them. Proper traffic regulation, planning and thinking
innovatively outside the box is the need of the day rather than just widening roads
with inadequate planning. I hope the Senior politicians will take a leaf from the way
much narrower roads are managed in UK/Europe and utilise them in planning our
great city.
