What troubles you regarding traffic or pedestrian safety at that location?:
New Link Road & LT Road Junction is one the busiest junction with regards to Traffic. It is junction, where three roads meet i.e. New Link Road, LT Road & Chandavarkar Road. Also, there is school at the one of the Corners, i.e. Don Bosco High School, Borivali (West). It becomes extremely difficult for pedestrians (including Office Goers, School Goers, Senior Citizens, Pregrant Womens, etc) to cross at the junction, since the vehicles stand from all the sides stand till the very end of the signal. Thus, for a pedestrian, it is like crossing the road from the very centre of junction. This my prove harmful and may cause accidents in future. All the Vehicles (Car, Bikes, Buses, Trucks) stand till the very end of the signal, since there is no Zebra Crossing Lines on the roads. Also there is no Markings on the Road for the vehicles, to stop the vehicle before a particular line, other than the signal.
What do you recommend be done as a solution?:
PAINTING OF ZEBRA CROSSINGS on all the roads at the junction. Before ZEBRA CROSSING, there should be "STOP HERE" Sign painted on the roads. Vehicles should be stop before the zebra crossing, so that pedestrians can cross the roads easily.
