Our group of activists passed by Asoke area during the beginning of April. We found that there was, at full scale, an ongoing footpath work alongside the main road. Yet there was no other way for pedestrians to walk safely and comfortably. Ordinary people might still survive this scenario but the same is not true for the disabled, and far worse for wheelchair user that has to step down on the busy street to get through. A real life-threatening moment.
We asked the locals regarding the footpath work. They said it’s been like this for months and will go on for a while. A footpath work with safety control should be an engineering standard. How come the BMA let the disgusting like this happen?
