Film chamber opposes Sivananda Circle flyover; work to begin in September 26.7.2017 deccanherald.com
The Karnataka Film Chamber of Commerce (KFCC) has joined the chorus against the controversial steel flyover at Sivananda Circle even as the government said the work on the project will start in September. KFCC is situated close to Hare Krishna Road, along which the flyover will be built. The flyover was the centre of discussion at the monthly meeting of the chamber on Wednesday. "The agenda of this month's meeting was the construction of the steel flyover. I have spoken to Bengaluru Development Minister K J George and Chief Minister Siddaramaiah telling them that the construction of the flyover is a wasteful exercise. We (chamber) will give a representation to them soon. If the flyover is constructed, there will be huge jams at the start and end of the flyover. The scene at the Cauvery junction magic box will be replicated here. Instead, the government should acquire land near the railway bridge and widen the road. That is more than sufficient," KFCCpresident Sa Ra Govindu said. Some members of the film ...

In what may put Mangaluru City Corporation (MCC)in a bind, the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI)has laid conditions to the civic body before going ahead with its plans to build public toilets under flyovers under the Swachh Bharat mission. The highway authorities, who are duty-bound to ensure safety, have sought a detailed proposal from the MCC, along with drawings to finalise the locations for toilets after conducting a joint inspection.

No trees will be cut for steel flyover: CM 24.7.2017 Deccan Herald - City
Chief Minister Siddaramaiah and Mayor G Padmavathi on Monday said trees or plants not will be cut for the construction of a steel flyover near Shivananda Circle. In response to a huge protest against the proposed flyover held on Sunday, Siddaramaiah said citizens seem to have a strong misconception about the steel flyover. "Citizens either have a strong misconception or they have misunderstood the concept of a steel flyover. They think that whenever there is a project to build steel flyover, trees will be cut and begin to protest immediately. But it is not so. We will ensure that no tree or even plant would be hurt during the construction of the project," he said. He also said the trees coming in the way of the project will be translocated. "It becomes difficult for us to implement development projects if the citizens do not cooperate," he said. He said efforts will be made to plant ten more saplings even if one tree is being cut because of the project. George's statement Reacting to protests against the ...

New flyover from Koramangala to Ejipura to cut travel time by 30 mins 24.7.2017 Deccan Herald - City
Chief Minister Siddaramaiah on Monday laid the foundation stone for a 2.4-km-long flyover from Kendriya Sadan in Koramangala to Ejipura Main Road junction. To be built at a cost of Rs 204 crore, the flyover will be a four-lane road. By constructing three main and four small junctions along the way, the signal-free corridor is expected to save about 30 minutes of travel time for motorists. Transport Minister Ramalinga Reddy said Bengaluru had over 60 lakh vehicles and the construction of the flyover would help decongest roads. Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) Commissioner N Manjunath Prasad said: "About 15,000 vehicles pass through this route every day and motorists will be able to save 30 minutes once the flyover opens. The flyover will have a cycle track along with a footpath." The flyover project, which received budgetary allocation in 2016-17, is expected to be completed by January 2019. "The work is expected to take 18 months," Reddy said. Mayor G Padmavathi said the flyover would be the ...

Elevated expressway to be shut during night for repairs 22.7.2017 deccanherald.com
The Hosur Road Elevated Expressway will be closed for a month between 12.30 am and 6 am for servicing of the expansion joints. According to a spokesperson of the Bangalore Elevated Tollway Project, "This was a routine servicing of the expansion joints. As many as 40 joints required servicing since they had been damaged over a period of time." The servicing of the joints was necessary since gaps had been formed at the expansion joints due to exposure to weather. The rubber between the blocks acts as a cushion for the expansion and the contraction of asphalt. The work is expected to be completed in a month's time. "There were reports of people falling off their vehicles when the wheels got stuck in the expansion joints. The servicing of the road is being undertaken to reduce this," the spokesperson said. The traffic inspector of the Electronics City police station said only one side of the flyover will be closed during the repair work at night, while the other side will be left open for traffic. It will ...

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 ...

Centre okays four-laning of Solapur-Vijayapura section of NH-52 12.7.2017 Deccan Herald - News
The Centre on Wednesday approved the four-laning of Solapur-Vijayapura section of the new National Highway-52 (formerly NH-13) in Maharashtra and Karnataka from the existing two-lane. The Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi approved the project and, its total cost will be Rs 1,889 crore, which includes expenditure incurred on land acquisition and pre-construction activities for 118-km stretch of road. The existing two-lane passes through Solapur, Takli and Nandani in Maharashtra and Zalki, Horti and Vijayapura in Karnataka. "The development of this road to four-lane with bypasses at Solapur, Vijayapura and building of six flyovers would reduce travel time and vehicle operating costs between the two cities. This road is part of the high-density traffic corridor of Bengaluru-Chitradurga-Vijayapura-Solapur-Aurangabad-Dhule-Indore-Gwalior," said a statement. The provision for two by-passes will ensure decongestion of the urban areas of Solapur and Vijayapura. ...

Urban crisis: better policies vital 12.7.2017 Deccan Herald - Analysis
We have the crisis of our lakes, we have the crisis of disposing our garbage, we also have crisis with flyovers and skywalks. This urban crisis is not limited to Bengaluru or Karnataka. Indeed, it would be unfair to blame Bengaluru or Karnataka alone for this state of affairs. Urban crisis has spread all over the country. This is happening at a time when we are supposed to be also reaping a demographic dividend. Why is our urban realm in such a mess? We often hear that we are leading to a 'mega urban crisis'. I would like to contend here that urban crisis of today is basically a governance crisis. Superficial statistics will tell you that we are only 31.2% urban and nearly 70% rural. Hence, the argument goes that urban is unimportant for governance. Look at the absolute figures: 31.2% of the 1.2 billion population or 400 million is made up of urban population. This figure of 400 million is more than the total population of the USA. That is enough to signify the importance of urban in today's India. This ...
