Streets are the lifelines of a community. Choke them, and the place dies; deprive them of their nutrients and ailments will be prevalent. A characteristic of a good street community is having all the necessary elements that will make the users feel safe and comfortable. Pleasant surroundings, appropriate lighting and other well-designed street furniture plus good maintenance all contribute to make a road both vehicular and pedestrian friendly.
