Bengaluru: The road turns a paddy field here! 24.4.2017
Bengaluru: When a BWSSB engineer decides to use loose mud to fill potholes instead of repairing the road using proper tools and material, not only the quality of the recently-laid stretch goes down, but also motorists and residents suffer. In Whitefield, a shoddy job done by the BWSSB has turned main roads and bylanes into paddy fields! “In the last two weeks, vehicles have caved in while driving on Outer Circle Road. The BWSSB dug it up to lay sewage pipes and did not cover the trenches properly. They used loose soil, which cannot withstand the weight of trucks and cars,” said resident of the area, Pravir Bagrodia. Nobody is hurt so far, but residents are apprehensive that a serious accident is waiting to happen if the road is not repaired, Mr Bagrodia says. Those living on Outer Circle Road said that the digging started December 28 last year, and has been progressing at a painfully slow rate. “They use only one earthmover for digging. Once the pipes are laid, the trench is not covered with crushed ...

Bengaluru: CAF to approach NGT to stop flow of raw sewage into lakes 24.4.2017
Bengaluru: With the National Green Tribunal (NGT) recently ordering civic bodies to close down industries polluting Bellandur Lake, the Citizens' Action Forum is planning to approach the green tribunal seeking directions to stop the flow of raw sewage into not only Bellandur lake but also all other water bodies in the city. It was only after CAF that approached the NGT on the steel flyover issue as a co-petitioner along with former Karnataka chief secretary Balasubramaniam that the state government shelved the controversial project. The citizen group, with the help of lake activists, resident welfare associations (RWAs) and NGOs, is gearing up to get the civic bodies fall in line with an NGT order to stop the flow of sewage into lakes. CAF president D.S. Rajashekar told Deccan Chronicle, "The city, once famous for its lakes, has now become infamous for the same lakes. Where is the Garden City heading to? Letting raw sewage into lakes is a criminal offence. If the BWSSB, which is the custodian, cannot ...

Bengaluru: Following directions from the National Green Tribunal (NGT), principal bench, Delhi, the Bengaluru Development Authority (BDA) is gearing up to adhere to the orders and has planned to install CCTV cameras to curb indiscriminate dumping of debris and garbage into the Bellandur lake. BDA engineer-member P.N. Nayak told Deccan Chronicle that CCTC cameras will be installed around the lake, especially the locations that are more prone to dumping. Different agencies, like the BWSSB, BDA and Karnataka State Pollution Control Board (KSPCB), brain stormed on the implementation of the NGT directions to get the polluted lake cleaned. The BDA said that tender documents will be opened on Monday to finalise the lowest bidder to clear the weed and debris from the lake.
