Traffic signals in Mumbai are pushing for gender equality, here's how

Aug 02, 2020 14:46 IST

In a first of its kind initiative, traffic signals across 13 junctions in Mumbai, will feature female pedestrians in traffic signal lights! These include 120 traffic lights between between Dadar and Mahim. Part of a BMC initiative called 'Culture Spine Project' in Mumbai, the move aims to promote gender equality. The project is the brainchild of Shiv Sena scion and Maharashtra minister Aaditya Thackeray, and also includes other initiatives like upkeep of parks and gardens in maximum city. Traffic signage with female representation has been an existing practice in several countries across the globe for many years now.
