while de­sign­ing the pedes­trian, we de­signed for more space on the street not only for pedes­tri­ans but also for present op­por­tu­ni­ties for plan­ning of ad­di­tional plant­ing areas, im­prov­ing street fur­ni­ture and land­scap­ing.

This is a widely used junc­tion and though the foot­path here is around 5 me­ters wide, it is usu­ally used to park two wheel­ers and hawk­ers thus re­duc­ing the us­able space con­sid­er­ably. The first con­scious de­ci­sion we made was to re­tain a 3.5 to 4 me­ter wide path­way at ev­ery point and use the rest of the space as a buf­fer be­tween the on­com­ing heavy traf­fic and pol­lu­tion and the peo­ple us­ing these streets for com­mute ev­ery day.
