The risk factor 18.3.2017 Deccan Herald - City
Walking is a basic and known mode of transport in all societies around the world. Virtually every trip begins and ends with walking. Walking comprises the sole means of travel on some journeys, whether a long trip or a short stroll to a shop. It is a well established fact that walking has health and environmental benefits. On one hand, it improves the health of an individual and reduces vehicular traffic contributing to reduced air pollution. Due to these benefits, traffic planners in major cities encourage walking for short distance journeys to reduce traffic congestion. Unfortunately, in Indian cities and towns, due to lack of adequate pedestrian facilities and indiscipline among road-users, walking may also lead to increased risk of road traffic accidents and injuries. In Indian cities, the number of pedestrians killed is almost 50% of the total road accidental deaths. In Bengaluru city, the number of pedestrians killed generally account for more than 40% of the total lives lost in road ...

The state government has banned two-stroke autorickshaws from Bengaluru roads from next month to cut noise and air pollution in the city.

Residents protest as BBMP skips KCDC grievance meet 13.3.2017 Deccan Herald - News
Members of Kudlu Gate, Haralur, Haralukunte, Somasundarapalya and Parangipalya (KHHSP) — a federation of residents' welfare associations, held a snap protest on Monday as BBMP backed out of a grievance meeting regarding a waste processing plant in their area. Members of the federation and local residents' welfare associations affected by the Karnataka Compost Development Corporation (KCDC) plant were earlier assured by the BBMP of a grievance meeting. The residents were planning to raise problems like stink, excessive dumping of garbage, air pollution and other issues caused by the plant. With the Palike backing out at the last minute, residents formed a human chain and held a peaceful protest inside the KCDC plant at Somasundarapalya. A meeting was scheduled to be held last Friday but it was postponed as officials were not available. "This is the third time the Palike has let us down. So far, no grievance meetings have taken place. There were one or two informal meetings with the then BBMP ...

Making space for biodiversity in urban areas 27.2.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
A few years ago, almost every day, I took my coffee in the balcony, observing the extremely animated and expeditious parakeets that never failed to keep an appointment with the old trees huddled on the side of the road. A year later, there were no trees, and more birds went homeless. Richard Mabey once said, "To be without trees would, in the most literal way, to be without our roots." By being a mute witness to this slow and deliberate felling of trees in the city, we are unknowingly parting ways with our much-coveted memories, experiences and with it a part of our culture. A recent report released by the Azim Premji University, Bengaluru states that we are set to lose 2244 trees, and 205 saplings from 71 species and 26 families to the proposed steel flyover and road- widening projects. A city known for trees like fig and neem that clean our air and cool our surroundings are all going to be axed, rendering the sky empty of birds. Disastrous impacts Bengaluru's population has been increasing steadily ...
