Not happy with the footpaths outside your home? The next time you engage with your ward councillor, you can approach them not just with a grievance, but with a solution. As part of its project to measure walkability, NGO Transparent Chennai, is conducting a ‘Community Design Workshop’ in Nanganallur on Saturday.
Data about pavements collected on May 19 in the neighbourhood will be presented and the two-part workshop will inform participants about what constitutes good pedestrian infrastructure. It will also allow them to design a cross-section of a street. The workshop is being held at 26, Moogambigai Flats, Bharathiyar Ist street, Pazhavanthangal.
Those interested can contact Kadambari at 9791521225 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
We invite readers to participate in this campaign. You can email pictures of bad pavements (size not more than 1.5 MB) to email@example.com
Please send a picture of yourself.
In the email, please give your name, contact information, location of the pavement, description of the issue and action required.
Your pictures will be posted on >www.facebook.com/chennaicentral and will also be considered for publication in the newspaper.
