THE BOMBAY GREENWAY PROJECT:
Turning the railways into greenways...
The Railway in Bombay defines the linear city & dictates how 7 million people travel daily!
The Railway into Greenway proposal envisions a 21st century greenway over the existing railway lines; 166kms of continuous, flat, traffic & stress free space to encourage active modes of transportation & healthy city living!
VELO CITY 2013: CYCLING VISIONARIES AWARDS:
VOTE FOR US here: http://velo-city2013.com/?page_id=2337&preview=true&project_id=207
While working on this, we discovered this international competition and have taken part in it.
Voting is on from 1st to 15th of April 2013 ONLY!!!!
If our project gets votes, there are higher chances that the BMC and any decision-makers listen to us and actually implement these ideas that would allow all of us to walk, cycle, hike, play, relax & enjoy traffic-free green spaces ;-))
AWARENESS & SUPPORT CAMPAIGN:
We also need to create awareness & bring like-minded people together (cyclist groups, hikers, nature lovers, NGOs, schools, decision-making organisations) through social media & other platforms.
If you have any ideas, suggestions, please contribute!
Feel free to share and circulate info on the Bombay Greenway Project and spread the news to people who matter to you :))
Thanking you for your support,
Looking forward to us all walking, unwinding, cycling together in a traffic-free, green space that would span the railway length, yuhuu!
