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 ...

Sarjapur residents pitch in to give a new lease of life to trees 1.5.2017 deccanherald.com
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. "A crane is needed to shift the trees and river sand is required to plant them in their new home. We also need ...

With the clearing of roadside trees nearly coming to a close, the stage is set for the commencement of civil work on widening a portion of National Highway 75 connecting Hassan and Bantwal Cross (BC)Road.

The new reality 8.3.2017 Deccan Herald - Thursday
Blaring horns, traffic jams, potholed roads, unpaved footpaths and unbridled construction — these are the sights and sounds of Bengaluru now. No wonder the city slipped to the 16th position in a city-wide urban governance survey done by Janaagraha, a city-based NGO. A total of 21 cities in the country were covered in the survey. The results indicated several systemic inadequacies in the city's governance that could affect public service delivery. Citizens feel that an expanding population has a lot to do with this. Rama Mani, who works with an IT firm, says that the infrastructure in the city is not able to handle the large number of people residing here. "This has also added to the vehicular movement which in turn, has lead to increased pollution levels," she says, adding "The improper communication between civic bodies and the public is also a cause for concern." She explains that the recent power cuts clearly indicate how civic bodies like BESCOM aren't able to cater to the needs of the ...
