Roads are public spaces and are meant for everyone – but in most Indian cities motorised vehicles are prioritised over pedestrians and pedestrian infrastructure.

Transparent Chennai invites the residents of Anna Nagar to contribute their ideas on pedestrian safety and pavement design on Saturday 17 May 2014. We plan to set up stalls where we will present pavement designs and invite feedback from residents!

With your inputs, we can make our streets better!

Date: 17 May, 2014
Time: 8-10AM
Venue: 4th Avenue

Contact Ranjeet Joseph (98408.61692) for more details.
