Environmental activists yesterday demanded marking zebra crossings at all busy thoroughfares in the capital to ensure safe movement of pedestrians.
They placed the demand after drawing a zebra crossing in front of fine arts faculty on Dhaka University campus, jointly organised by Poribesh Bachao Andolon (Save Environment Movement) and Nirapod Development Foundation.
Environmental activists there urged the government to not misuse funds by building foot-over-bridges in the city as most pedestrians do not use them.
They also demanded making separate walk-lane along busy streets for pedestrians. They urged all to practice walking instead of using vehicles.
Environmental activists Abu Naser Khan, Ibnul Sayed Rana, Syed Mahbubul Alam and Moshiur Rahman Rubel, among others, spoke on the occasion.
