It's a dark walk from railway station to Metro station 9.11.2017 Deccan Herald - City
People walking towards the rear entrance of the Krantivira Sangolli Rayanna railway station from the KRS Metro station pray at every step they take. This is because the path is dark with no lighting, no signboards, and no security guards. Those walking to platform 8, 9 or 10 of the railway station have to navigate every step they take. The fleet of steps for the platform 10 not only lack proper illumination but are broken. The road behind the railway quarters is narrow, dark and unattended. "The first time when I was moving out of the railway station towards the Metro station, I walked on the overbridge for nearly 15 minutes with all my luggage searching for the nearest connectivity," said Sunitha L. "It was difficult to get down from platform 1 of the railway station and cross the road to reach Majestic Metro station. I found a railway guard on platform 3 who told me to go through platform 10. He also asked me to be cautious as the road is dark and isolated," Sunitha added. However, for the second time ...

Piles of garbage in HRBR Layout 5.11.2017 deccanherald.com
Piles of garbage in HRBR Layout The vacant space and roads in 1st Block of HRBR Layout, Banaswadi, have become dumping yards. Mounds of garbage lying at several places in the area are posing health hazards to residents. Diseases like dengue, swine flu and typhoid are on the rise. The foul smell of rotting garbage has made our lives miserable. BBMP workers do not lift garbage on a regular basis. The BBMP should take stringent action against people who dump garbage on roads and vacant spaces. The local body should also ensure garbage is lifted on a daily basis. Gopinath 1st Block, HRBR Layout, Kalyan Nagar *************************************************************** Reckless Metro work near Silk Board Jn Initial work has begun between Central Silk Board Junction and BTM Layout for the Metro line.

ORR, a ringside view of chaos 4.11.2017 deccanherald.com
Once touted as the ultimate answer to Bengalurus traffic woes, the 60-km Outer Ring Road donned the freeway tag with pride. But that was between 1996 and 2002, when it opened up in sections. Today, when the city has far outgrown its confines, the Ring Road is a telling picture of peak-hour chaos in dire need of repair and maintenance. This rush is palpable right through the day at the junction where the ORR crosses the Old Madras Road right under the K R Puram cable-stayed bridge. The bridge, by design, is so poor that it lets traffic pass under it at just one overcrowded spot: Where luggage-holding passengers from the K R Puram railway station spill out in hundreds, triggering unimaginable chaos. K R Puram chaos Vehicles speeding down the ORR piles up right before this junction, before crawling out towards Marathahalli, Bellandur and beyond. Private and BMTC buses that pick up and drop commuters right at the bridge entrance only add to the mess. A bus bay, built a few hundred feet ahead of the bridge is ...

Palike garbage contractors block road, leave a stink on NH 4 31.10.2017 deccanherald.com
Garbage contractors have occupied a part of the service road to segregate waste near Nagasandra Metro Station on NH4, putting motorists at risk and posing health hazards to residents. The service road in front of the Metro station is a dangerous stretch with vehicles running in both directions. Around 15 vehicles, including trucks, were parked on the road on Tuesday morning during the loading and unloading process, disrupting traffic. On the opposite side of the road, the BBMP has turned a blind eye to dumping of garbage into a stormwater drain. Carcasses, wet waste and dry waste were littered all over place. During the heavy rain over the last few weeks, the clogged drain had turned the service road into a swamp. "We have informed officials and the corporator in this regard. We have also written to NHAI. But nothing has happened," said Subhash Shetty, a resident of Nagasandra. The land used as a dumpyard belongs to National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) and Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Ltd ...

Dasarahalli, Nagasandra station subways after NHAI approval 29.10.2017 Deccan Herald - News
BMRCLs latest move to provide for subways to access Dasarahalli and Nagasandra Metro stations on National Highway-48 may face yet another hurdle over making payment to the National Highway Authority of India (NHAI) for use of its land. In September, Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Limited (BMRCL) called tenders for the construction of a subway each for two elevated Metro stations at Dasarahalli and Nagasandra, where people are forced to cross the busy NH-48 to access the stations. The last date for submission of tenders is December 4, when the bids are opened and the contracts are likely to be awarded. However, the NHAI has written to BMRCL, saying that they have to deposit about Rs 2.5 crore for 30 years towards way-leave charges (for land use). Sources in BMRCL said it was part of NHAI procedure to get the way-leave charges before allowing use of its land. "As per rule, we have to deposit the money or seek exemption from NHAI central office in New Delhi, before starting the work," the sources ...

'Exorbitant' costs keep telecom operators away from Metro 25.10.2017 Deccan Herald - News
Metro commuters may have to keep up with lack of mobile phone network in the underground stretches as telecom service providers (TSPs) are unlikely to come forward to provide connection due to "exorbitant" costs. While commuters complain about lack of mobile network connections in the tunnels of both the lines, Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Limited (BMRCL) officials said underground telecommunications infrastructure has been provided by a private company which bagged the tender for the work. "The service providers have to pay the American Tower Corporation (ATC) for using telecom infrastructure in the tunnel section. So far, only one company (Jio) has subscribed," a senior BMRCL official said. The ATC has 10-year contract with BMRCL. When asked, spokespersons for major TSPs refused to comment on the issue. However, industry sources said TSPs will continue to avoid Metro tunnels due to the exorbitant costs charged for utilising the telecom infrastructure. "BMRCL should have invited operators to invest ...

ORRCA meets official to review work 25.10.2017 Deccan Herald - News
Members of the Outer Ring Road Companies' Association (ORRCA), a representative body of companies on the outer ring road, have submitted a list of infrastructure works to be taken up on the ORR on priority. A few representatives met Mahendra Jain, additional chief secretary, Urban Development, and submitted a petition with a wishlist that includes white-topping of several roads. The recent record rainfall in the city has worsened the plight of thousands of employees commuting and working on the outer ring road and across the IT corridors of the city, said a petition. "To bring to the government's attention to the immediate issues that are now negatively impacting 'Brand Bengaluru' and discuss how the private sector can be of assistance, ORRCA members met the chief secretary," one of the office bearers of ORRCA said. "At the meeting, ORRCA and the Urban Development Department agreed that Bengaluru has gained significant importance as a premier global IT destination. To build upon current achievements and ...

Namma Metro tokens sport new look 23.10.2017 Deccan Herald - City
Bored of purchasing the plain black tokens whenever you travel on Namma Metro? The Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Limited (BMRCL) has decided to break the monotony of your travel by introducing the single-journey tokens in a new avatar. The redesign is also expected to attract promotions when the BMRCL decides to monetise tokens in the future. The new tokens are made of clear plastic, with a picture of the metro train against a background of the Vidhana Soudha on one side. Kempegowda Tower in Lalbagh, which once marked the outer boundaries of the city, is depicted on the other side along with the words 'Bengaluru Namma Metro'. "We introduced the new tokens to break the monotony. We can always keep changing the token design," said Vasanth Rao, Chief Public Relations Officer, BMRCL. The BMRCL also intends to monetise the tokens in the future and the new look would help attract advertisers and companies. "Any company which is interested can have its logo displayed on one side.
