MTC and the lessons of the OMR student tragedy

In my new blog on The Hindu website called Urban Prospects, I raise the question of whether the Metropolitan Transport Corporation has learnt anything at all from the student tragedy on Old Mahabalipuram Road (Rajiv Gandhi Salai). That piece can be read here.

If you have a point of view on the matter, head over to the blog post and let me know.

The Blog Section of The Hindu is here.

A good piece by G. Pramod Kumar in FirstPost on the same issue titled “Too old and too few: the real reason behind Chennai footboard deaths” is here, and he provides a good overview of the problem of neglected mobility of Indian citizens.
