The width of the footpath….

I was walking down the Inner Ring Road, from Jayadeva Circle towards Silk Board, and was struck by the difference in the way roads are designed now. No trees, no shade, to make the pedestrians’ lot a little easier….but that was less of a problem than the amount of space allocated to walk on. 

Here’s the footpath just past the Jayadeva flyover….
