With recycled materials like tires and wood, simple painting, and the help of volunteers, this congested and dangerous street in Coimbatore was temporarily transformed into a safer and more attractive place for #pedestrians and #publictransport users in November 2019.
‘Kovai Connect- Celebrating Public Spaces’ is a #tacticalurbanism project by Coimbatore City Municipal Corporation (CCMC) in collaboration with GIZ, GFA Consulting Group and @udc_gram. As part of a citywide #activemobilitynetwork plan, Big Bazaar Road had been selected as a pilot project to promote non-motorized and public transport.
Based on feedback from all stakeholders, the measures will be implemented permanently.
