Hope to be better than Bandra skywalk

have they released any renderings/designs or connecting paths.

MMRDA site has the names of locations where these 50 skywalks are going to be built, but there are no design/renderings etc.

( I think they are not creating expectations in people's mind, after the poor structure of bandra skywalk)

I just want any more skywalks.

This has become trend for the BMC. They think they have done a splendid job. Its plain BS.
Why would they want mile-long bridges all over the city? This is going to be the ugliesh infrastructure project ever!!!

and they'll fall apart in 10 years and terrorists will bomb them and gangsters and theives will live in the them because you can't have police watching something so far and remote and nobody will use them and even if they do it'll suck because they aren't wide enough

Exactly...

Foolish people... absolutely... Can someone tell these idiots that whatever taking the praise for, is worthless. They are planning to open a two-decker bridge (I am not going to call them Skywalks, because such bridges are insult to skywalks).

The two decker bridge will include hawkers in shops to sell stuff. AA gaye apni aukaad pe, jaha dekhi jagah, they are finding some way out just to make some money....

Seriously man, can't they look for long-term permanent solutions. They will get "wah-wah" from the people in the first few months. Then it will be like a ghost's mansion....

that's the problem with every project, it's never aesthetically pleasing as other cities.

thx dread.

to gild the lily, 'skywalks' or pedestrian walkways are not inherently bad. but we do need unity of design and purpose. som design are 'simple' but very effective. they are open, modern, and spacious. the structural elements do not detract from the view and the whole is at a scale to which humans can relate.

my thought is that this new contraption should be inviting and offer greater utility to the users. bombayites should be willing to climb those stairs because the walkway should be better than jaywalking on the streets below.

we have a design that is being implemented elsewhere. hope we learn from it.

TOI: MMRDA, BMC tussle adds to Mumbaikars' woes

MMRDA, BMC tussle adds to Mumbaikars' woes

Quote:
MUMBAI: A tug-of-war between the BMC and the MMRDA, over construction and maintenance of roads, has ensured that Mumbaikars have to live with potholes for another monsoon.

The BMC has refused to take responsibility of a few roads till the MMRDA does a proper job of them; some of these roads need a couple of more months to be given a final shape and some others are only half done (they were supposed to be ready for handing over to the BMC by June 2008).

Broken pavements, potholed patches, damaged paver blocks at junctions, unfinished dividers with no greenery, damaged streetlight poles, open storm-water drains and debris strewn on the surface are some of the complaints that the BMC has about several of these roads; they include Sion-Dharavi Link Road, Andheri-Ghatkopar Link (Extension ) Road, Saki-Vihar Road, the road from Mahakali Caves to MIDC, Marol-Maroshi Road, Goregaon-Mulund Link Road (Extension), Sahar Airport Road and Dhaku Road in the suburbs. The completed patches on Jogeshwari-Vikhroli Link Road, S V Road, LBS Marg, Linking Road, and N S Phadke Marg also have damaged pavements and broken dividers. MMRDA commissioner Ratnakar Gaikwad had claimed work on some of these roads was complete and even announced the handover of the roads. He had then promised to give finishing touches to these roads to the satisfaction of citizens and the BMC.

RE: Paver blocks

Why do they even bother with these? Just pour a simply concrete slab. It has a more consistent surface, requires less maintenance, and can be put down much faster than labor intensive pavers.
