Jakkur Flying School runway extension unsafe, say residents 22.3.2018 deccanherald.com
The controversy over the BBMPs imminent acquisition of three acres of the Government Flying Training School land at Jakkur for a new road to GKVK Layout just got deeper. Surrounding communities are opposed to a move to extend the runway by 175 metres to give a new lease of life to the flying school. Articulating the communities stand, a spokesperson for the residents associations of GKVK Layout and Shobha Suburbia, says, "The runway extension is being proposed to somehow keep the airport alive with scant regard for the safety of the communities surrounding the flying school and with utter disregard for the directives of the honorable courts." Once extended, the runway will touch the compound of the neighbouring property located to the west of the flying school. "The surrounding communities had never dreamt that aircraft would one day take off a few feet away from their homes. The extended runway will adversely affect the flight safety and safety to life and property below," says a local resident, a ...

Vehicular overload: No escape 24.2.2018 deccanherald.com
Vehicular overload: No escape The citys reckless obsession with private, personal vehicles shows absolutely no sign of abating despite its hopelessly gridlocked roads. That is clearly the sad message from this piece of transport statistics: Sixteen lakh vehicles joined the traffic in Karnataka in 2017 alone, the vast majority in just one city: Bengaluru. Trapped for hours in peak-hour traffic at junction after junction, every motorist could ponder over this disturbing data: Its road infrastructure severely stretched, the city now has to contend with a mindboggling 72.58 lakh vehicles registered at its 12 Regional Transport Offices (RTOs). This number, updated till 2017 end, should have risen again this year. But this discounts the huge number of vehicles from outside the State and Karnataka vehicles registered outside Bengaluru. Effectively, the city with an estimated population of 1.02 crore has a vehicle to people ratio of 1:1.4. So, how does a road-infrastructure that cannot handle traffic beyond 10 ...
