_standing--2The NMMC Standing Committee kick started its footpath vision by approving several proposals on repair of footpaths in the city. There were a total of 31 proposals which were approved by the standing committee and 23 pertained to repair of footpaths. To provide user-friendly footpaths, the NMMC has rolled out its ‘Footpath Vision’, under which all the footpaths in the city will be repaired so that maximum people can use it. The NMMC Standing Committee approved a 23 proposals pertaining to the repair of footpaths out of the 31 proposals that were approved in the meeting. What is generally seen is that pedestrians usually walk on roads rather than footpaths due to its dire conditions. The footpaths are also not physically challenged friendly. Keeping this in mind, NMMC will be making changes in the footpath structure which will benefit the people in a big way. The civic body will also construct slopes on each side of the footpath to ease the efforts of physically challenged and put extra curve stones for the senior citizens. NMMC Standing Committee Chairman also expressed the need of repair of footpaths in the city. The meeting also decided to cover the manholes with harder Fiber Info Plastic. Currently, the manholes are covered with cement slabs which are broken by miscreants to extract iron. The FRP covers are light weight and can be opened easily. Besides, they can’t be reprocessed so there is no reason why anyone would steal them. With cameraperson Satish Garud, Sana Warsia for NMTV News.
