The pedestrian path built by the authorities from the bypass to Kasumpti SDA complex is so narrow that at some points only one person can walk. Since the area houses several government offices, there is heavy traffic and people use the path. The entire effort to facilitate pedestrians has been rendered futile as the path is very narrow. — Sumit, Shimla
Wrongly parked vehicles
The widening of the narrow road that leads to lower Panthaghati from the national highway hasn’t helped. Most of the time, vehicles are parked on the widened part, leaving space enough for just one vehicle to cross. As a result, people have to reverse their vehicles on a steep incline, which is both difficult and dangerous. The authorities concerned should not allow parking of vehicles on this stretch. — Vijay, Shimla
