Asked to prune it, BBMP staff chop whole tree 12.4.2018 Deccan Herald - City
The Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) has axed a full-grown tree after an influential person wanted the tree pruned. Residents of Rajarajeshwari Nagar say that since January, the BBMP has felled at least 34 trees in the area to please some influential people. They claim that since the area is home to many influential people, the Palike has mercilessly felled trees for providing entrances, road widening and parking spaces. Dhruv Kiran, the personal assistant to Bengaluru Development Minister K J George, on March 23 applied to the BBMP Forest Cell for pruning of branches of a 30-year-old tree. The application was made for site number 414 on 3rd Cross Ideal Homes Colony. But the workers pruned it so badly that the tree had to be fully axed. A BBMP Forest Cell official said the tree was axed following an application from Dhruv Kiran and after getting permission from the assistant conservator of forests (ACF). Shantha Kumar, ACF, BBMP Forest Cell said permission was given only to prune the branches. ...

A massive road-cum-rail flyover at Silk Board junction, supporting metro lines and carrying road traffic at multiple levels, will come up in the next two and half years, if the plan chalked out by the BMRCL comes to fruition.

Metro defers demolition of Jayadeva Circle flyover 26.3.2018 deccanherald.com
The BMRCL has deferred the demolition of the Jayadeva flyover by at least four to five months as the contractor concerned is not ready to take up the subsequent work, including construction of a multi-level flyover. Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Limited (BMRCL) had planned to demolish the 12-year-old structure by the end of March and start working on a four-level flyover while retaining the underpass. A senior BMRCL official said the decision to defer the demolition was taken to ensure that lakhs of people who use the flyover are not put to unnecessary inconvenience. "We realised that the contractor is not prepared for the subsequent work after the demolition. We have urged the contractor to finish the other allied work and start piling work to allow the use of the flyover till its demolition becomes part of the critical stage of the project," he said. The new flyover, which includes the Jayadeva Interchange Metro Station, is a part of Phase 2s RV Road-Bommasandra metro line (Reach 5), for which ...

Residents left with no way out of homes as BBMP delays works on shoulder drains 19.3.2018 Deccan Herald - City
The Telecom Layout residents have been facing a tough time even to exit their homes for the past four months now, thanks to snail-paced work by the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP). The civic body has undertaken the reconstruction of shoulder-drain at the Hosahalli ward in Vijayanagar. The work includes removal of silt, widening and reconstruction of the shoulder drain. However, it also involves the removal of the existing slabs that connect the footpath and the houses. It has left wide gaps for residents to scale, irking several residents since the work is going on for more than four months now. Ankita Sharma (name changed) is a resident of the 11th main road in Telecom Layout. She is in her late 40s and uses her two-wheeler to go to work. All slabs except one near the gate in front of her house have been removed. A month ago, on returning from work, she tried to ride her two-wheeler inside her house to park, balancing on a lone slab. But she fell into the drain with her two-wheeler. "Although ...
