SteelFlyoverBeda 2.0: residents oppose bridge at Shivananda Circle 21.7.2017 Deccan Herald - News
In part two of the #SteelFlyoverBeda campaign, local residents will stage a protest at Shivananda Circle on Sunday to raise their voice against the upcoming steel bridge at the busy intersection in central Bengaluru. The steel flyover is proposed to be 326 metres long and will connect commuters from Race Course Road towards Hare Krishna Road and the railway underpass in Sheshadripuram. Residents say the project is "fraught with administrative and logistic problems which would defeat the purpose of constructing the flyover". They say that as the width of Hare Krishna Road between Jeevan building, adjoining Kumara Park, and the Karnataka Film Chamber of Commerce is hardly 65 feet, there will not be enough space to provide service roads on either side of the ramp. Residents also believe the flyover will not help in decongestion and may instead lead to gridlock. "Downward movement of vehicles towards the narrow road leading to the under-bridge will lead to severe congestion," the statement said. Further, the ...

The Kannada Development Authority (KDA) has directed the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) to ensure that shops and commercial establishments display their name plates in Kannada. KDA has asked the BBMP to implement this within a fortnight. Amid an uproar over inclusion of Hindi in Namma Metro trains and stations, KDA chairman S G Siddaramaiah held a meeting with BBMP officials and directed them to ensure that Kannada is used in the display boards of shops and commercial buildings in the city.

Phase 2 Metro, too, will have no bus, rail link 17.7.2017 Deccan Herald - City
Namma Metro is set to grow further reaching new and far corners of the city. However, it will remain disconnected from other modes of transport which is evident from the location of stations on the Gottigere-Nagawara line. Phase 1 of Namma Metro, built at a cost of about Rs 14,000 crore with a six-year-delay, has remained isolated without proper connection to other modes of transport at key junctions like Majestic, Yeshwantpur and City railway stations. "Baiyappanahalli Metro was not linked to the railway station in Baiyappanahalli for three years. It took three years for building the MG Road Metro station's Church Street entrance. Even today, there is no access to Peenya, Jalahalli and Dasarahalli stations from the other side of NH-4 on Tumakuru Road. BMRCL has continued the same attitude in Phase 2," said urban transport expert Sanjeev Dyamannavar. Dyamannavar has written a letter to Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Ltd (BMRCL) managing director calling for realignment of the proposed Cantonment Metro ...
