Residents vow protests as BBMP starts work on Sivananda flyover 18.11.2017 Deccan Herald - News
Residents are up in arms against the BBMP for starting the work on the controversial steel flyover project at Sivananda Circle in central Bengaluru. At a meeting on Saturday, residents of Srikanta Layout and Madhava Nagar resolved to protest against the 326.5-metre flyover sometime next week. "The flyover plan was made in 2011 and might have been necessary at that time. But now, it is not at all necessary. Instead of building a flyover here, the BBMP should widen the space near the railway underpass," said Chitra Venkatesh, a resident. She added that commuting had become easier after the opening of Namma Metros Green Line and that there was not much traffic at the intersection. "We plan to challenge this project as the BBMP failed to hold a public consultation," she said. Srinivas Alavilli of Citizens for Bengaluru, a non-profit organisation that has been organising protests against "unnecessary and short-sighted flyovers in the city, said, "Local residents as well as other concerned citizens ...

24K street vendors to get IDs 18.11.2017 Deccan Herald - News

The Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) will issue identity cards to as many as 24,129 street vendors so that they are not harassed by its officials or the police.

The civic agency carried a survey of street vendors in eight BBMP zones last September and identified the places where they can do business. A BBMP official said: "We have identified hawker zones in each ward where these vendors will be given space. This will also help us crack down on illegal hawking. We will also issue them ID cards."

Koramangala flyover work begins as fresh queries arise 15.11.2017 Deccan Herald - News
The construction of the Koramangala flyover to decongest three junctions has formally kicked off. But even as residents associations there claim the project had their approval, other voices have emerged raising questions about its impact on traffic and environment. The project had been in the pipeline since 2012, and all of Koramangala stood united on this matter, says Nitin Seshadri, former president of the 3rd Block Residents Welfare Association. The project had been in the public domain for years, he points out, questioning the interest in raking up issues now. The elevated corridor is designed as a four-lane, bi-directional structure, integrating three traffic junctions en route: The hyper-clogged Sony World Junction, the Ejipura Main Road-Inner Ring Road Junction and the Kendriya Sadana Junction. Foundation pits are now being dug from the Kendriya Sadan side. Critics of the project say the flyover will result in cascading effect, choking both ends at the Intermediate Ring Road (IRR) and Hosur Road. ...

Steel bridge near Shivanada Circle likely to be a reality 9.11.2017 Deccan Herald - City
The steel bridge near Shivananda Circle will soon be a reality as the state government has decided to go ahead with the proposal. The decision comes after Mahendra Jain, additional chief secretary of the urban development department, rejected local residents representation against the project, and the same was presented before the high court on Thursday. Jain had passed an order rejecting the representation on October 31, 2017. Residents had moved the high court challenging the steel bridge construction at the Sivananda Circle. The court had disposed of their PIL and directed them to make a representation to the government. Jains order stated that the construction cannot be stopped as the flyover is critical for the city given the traffic congestion and increasing population. It also said if every development work is resisted by some affected interest, the city will fall behind in keeping pace with the increase in the population and the number of vehicles. The order advised the Bruhat Bengaluru ...

Garbage dumping goes unchecked in Vrishabhavathi 8.11.2017 Deccan Herald - City
The state government may be making big plans about rejuvenating the Vrishabhavathi Valley, but it has utterly failed to stop such a basic thing as dumping of garbage in what was once a river. Every day, auto-rickshaws and trucks are seen unloading garbage in the valley near the Sumanahalli flyover on West Bengalurus Magadi Road. Nearly a kilometre-long stretch along the valley is littered with garbage, raising an unbearable stench. The mounds of garbage are often set on fire, polluting the air. The situation has worsened after the winter set in. Garbage, especially plastic, flies around, sticking to helmets, cars, bags and clothes. Road users and local residents agree that the dumping of garbage and the resultant stench have increased manifold in the past month. Interestingly, the mounds of garbage are a stones throw from the recently launched Indira Canteen in Kottigepalya, ward number 73. Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) officials, however, appear to have turned a blind eye to the ...

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 ...
