    3. A designated space for public utilities to be provided along the footpath and a long term plan for provision of underground utility ducts and trenches shall be proposed.
    4. The provision for street infrastructure, kiosks, public amenities, gas pipelines, etc. wherever required needs to be planned in consultation with Traffic Police, MCD, IGL and PWD
    5. Alternate design interventions like use of grass pavers or brick jaalis in drain coverings and green verge etc. need to be explored
    6. Working Group stressed upon the importance of ensuring safety of pedestrians, especially the vulnerable groups (like differently abled, old people, women, children, etc.) through design interventions
    7. It was suggested to provide controlled access points along footpaths near the junctions to prevent jaywalking, as well as introducing pedestrian traffic signals at crossings with high pedestrian usage.
    8. Arrangements for cycle parking sheds to be explored wherever possible
    9. Consultant to provide cost estimate of the Walk Plan to the Road Owning Agency and Executing Agency (PWD). Also, the agencies need to be identified for implementation of the Walkability Plans so that funds/ budget arrangements can be made by the concerned agencies in advance
