'Illegal' widening of road in Male Mahadeshwara Hills raises hackles 5.6.2017 Deccan Herald - News
The Public Works Department (PWD) has started "widening" the state highway in Male Mahadeshwara Hills (MM Hills) in Chamarajanagar district on the basis of an oral approval received from the Forest Department, angering conservationists. The road cuts through MM Hills and connects Hanur and Ramapura villages via Ajjipura in Kollegal taluk of the district. The PWD is widening and repairing a 4.5-km stretch of the road. "It is disheartening that the road is being widened inside MM Hills within the Hanur buffer zone and that too without a formal approval from the authorities concerned," Shankar, a wildlife conservationist from MM Hills, said. Upgrading roads inside wildlife sanctuaries requires mandatory approvals from the Karnataka State Wildlife Board and the National Board for Wildlife. The Union government has made it clear that no work in the forest cover will start without the written approval of these boards. But the authorities of MM Hills have permitted upgrade of the road in the sanctuary without ...

Citizens, BBMP at loggerheads over translocating trees 10.5.2017 Deccan Herald - City
The opposition to the proposed widening of Jayamahal Road continues with protesters now urging the Mysuru royal family not to translocate trees on Palace Grounds to make way for road widening. The Jayamahal Residents' Welfare Association, with Citizens for Bengaluru, has written an open letter to the Mysuru royal family in this regard. "More than a thousand people had protested the move to cut trees and the BBMP received 30,000 objections as emails and letters. These facts are being disregarded in an attempt to ramrod the project in violation of the Town and Country Planning Act," said the letter signed by Srinivas Alavilli of CfB. BBMP Commissioner N Manjunath Prasad said there was no question of cutting any tree. "We have already made this clear. We want to translocate all the 112 trees," he said. Noting that translocation has a success rate of a mere 1%, the association said the whole operation amounted to cutting trees. When asked about the protesters' claim, the commissioner said, "There are ...

Three trees marked to be felled for widening of Dommasandra-Attibele Road will now be transplanted, thanks to the efforts of Sarjapur Residents' Welfare Association, which has raised money through crowd-funding to save them. "A tree was felled near Sarjapur bus stop nearly two months ago. We later learnt that more than 200 trees will meet the same fate for widening of Dommasandra-Attibele Road. We then urged the PWD and the Forest department officials to transplant them. But they said that would cost them dear and declined our request," said Sarjapur RWA's environment secretary Raicy Mathew. "We then decided to call B Ilango, who brought hundreds of trees that were uprooted by cyclone in Chennai to life and Vijay Nishanth, known as the tree doctor. Both said three trees in Sarjapur and Yamare could be saved," Mathew added. RWA president Jagadish Kottur Shettar said the process will be expensive.
