Child-friendly streets for Coimbatore City

27 January 2021

AITD-IndiaRAP is helping to create child-friendly streets and improve non-motorised transport infrastructure in Coimbatore City, Tamil Nadu.

Twenty-nine pedestrian hotspots and 295km of cycling routes across Coimbatore are being targeted for safe access to walking and cycling as part of the Deutsche Gesellschaft fuer Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH project, in cooperation with the Coimbatore City Municipal Corporation (CCMC) and the GFA-WRI India-Wuppertal Institute consortium.

IndiaRAP supports the project:

  • using Star Rating for Schools (SR4S) to measure the risk children are exposed to on their journey to school
  • Star Rate an existing urban street and improved design prepared under the project
  • conduct training and capacity building for stakeholders

Star Rating for Schools won a Prince Michael International Road Safety Award in 2018.
