Mumbai, Apr 6 (PTI) Twenty major accident-prone "black spots" in Mumbai that have claimed 132 lives between 2019 and 2021 will be redesigned following a survey by the World Resources Institute India and Global Designing Cities Initiative, a civic official said on Thursday.

The WRI India and GDCI surveyed these spots in 2021-22 and are now preparing designs to upgrade their infrastructure to make them safer for vulnerable road users like pedestrians, cyclists and motorcyclists, a release said.

From 2019 to 2021, a total of 132 people were killed and 429 were seriously injured at these 20 black spots in Mumbai, with Amar Mahal junction in Ghatkopar leading with 24 fatalities and 46 serious injuries, it said.
