Without lights, Airoli skywalk is danger zone
The skywalk at AiroliDiva village on Mulund-Airoli road is in complete darkness.
The absence of lights in the skywalk is causing problems for students, women and senior citizens who regularly use it during evening hours.
Despite complaints, there has been little action by civic authorities and they are yet to look into the problem, said Airoli residents.
The state-of-the-art skywalk at sector 15 and 16 was constructed by the NMMC to put an end to a spate of accidents that took place in the area when residents crossed the busy road.
The skywalk has been facing a number of problems for some time. Without lights, the situation has worsened.
Shridhar Apte, a local resident, said: “Residents are hesitating to use the skywalk at night. The skywalk is increasingly being taken over by drug addicts.”
He added, “They can now be seen even during day time. This is raising security concerns for women and students. It is high time the civic body took strict action and restored the skywalk to its original condition.”
Civic officials said the situation will be rectified at the earliest.
