4. Government offices

 

The facilities include:

 

i. Walkway

ii. Cycling lane

iii. Street furniture and planting zone (Trees, Shrubs, and Groundcovers) iv.

 

Vehicular Parking There was an emphasis on inclusive access by Persons With Disabilities, the young and old due to the uneven building levels along the road. Ramps to lower buildings, recessed wheelchair bays were included in seats and a tabletop bump was introduced at the crossing.
