To improve Road Safety, due to recent spate of accidents which is trending to a killing spree.

Following points need urgent attention :

a) Debilitated & Encroached pavements are causing inconvenience to general public, especially to the Senior Citizens and Children. These footpaths to be repaired / refurbished with S.S. side railings and vehicle restrictors, and to be designed to Safety Standards.

b) Existing wider roads viz. @Valnai / Orlem Market (section near Cardinal Gracias Ground ~ Garden Court Restaurant; 4-lane Road), are without speed breakers & road island dividers (slightly raised) / flexible reflective delineators / road barriers (FRP only), thereby causing inability to cross. 

c) Present ‘No Entry’ / ‘Compulsory Left’ Lanes, Speed Breakers and Pedestrian Zebra Crossing are without proper signages and markings

d) Motorists (2/3/4 wheelers) are driving in the wrong directions, thereby violating traffic rules, and have caused many accidents which have been at times, very fatal; most recently a tea stall vendor lost his life, and a home-maid suffered multiple fractures in the ribs and femur bone.

e) Major intersections / junctions viz. Prabhat Stores, Orlem Church, Shankar Lane, Sunder Lane..., are unmanned by police personnel. Having a Traffic constable at such locations is imperative. Also, installing CCTV Cameras, close monitoring (capturing vehicle number plates and serving penalty notices) from remote control stations will definitely curb driving violations. 

f) Hawkers including PUC Mobile vans & Food trucks, along the Main Road cause further inconvenience to pedestrians and motorists too. Both one way sections viz. HDFC Bank to Mitchowki-Link Road Junction & Corporation Bank to SunFlower PathLab, should be made strictly non-hawking zones and no-parking zones (periodic).

g) Garbage collection zones are kept in unclean and unhealthy conditions. There is a need to followup on Swach Bharat program and maintain cleaninless and thus a ‘Clean & Green Mumbai’ commissioned by BMC. Streets and garbage collection areas need to be cleaned on a regular basis.
