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. ...

The Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) will continue its drive to remove all English boards in front of shops in the city. The civic agency claims it is just implementing the orders issued by the Kannada Development Authority (KDA). The KDA had directed the BBMP to ensure that at least 60% of the space on a board should be written in Kannada. BBMP Commissioner N Manjunath Prasad told DH: "During meetings conducted by the KDA, we were directed to launch a drive to remove boards." Directive to Mantri Mall On November 10, the BBMP commissioner wrote to Mantri Mall for violating the rule of using Kannada on commercial boards. The letter said: "During a recent inspection, we found there were no Kannada boards on the Mantri Mall premises, both indoor and outdoor, while other languages are given prominence. As per the government rule, Kannada should be used compulsorily in commercial boards. It is directed that the boards contain 60% of Kannada and 40% of English. Hence, it is directed that within ...

Newly laid road dug up to lay pipelines 9.11.2017 Deccan Herald - City
Lack of coordination among the civic agencies or the hold of local leaders on the civic works, digging up of newly asphalted road to lay pipelines is definitely burning a deep hole in the taxpayers pocket. Despite the Bangalore Water Supply and Sewerage Board (BWSSB) informing the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) about its ongoing work on a road, the BBMP asphalted it five weeks ago. In Doddakallasandra, located off Kanakapura Main Road, the BWSSB had informed the sewerage board that it would take up water pipeline laying work. However, the civic body took up the work during Dasara festival. Days later, the board shifted water pipelines and in less than two months, the newly asphalted road was dug up. "I told the local palike engineer not to asphalt the road. But the engineer that the work was already awarded and it was better for them to get the road done," Avinash, a local resident said. The BWSSB official says that they have sent a list of areas where they would take up the pipelines laying ...

BBMP claim on potholes a sham 6.11.2017 Deccan Herald - City
Claims of Bruhat Bengaluru Mananagara Palike (BBMP) that they have filled 98% potholes in the city is a sham. On Sunday, the civic body claimed there are just 844 potholes in the city. But a reality check by DH in 10 major roads in Central Business District (CBD) area identified 236 potholes. These stretches of roads include Townhall to KR Market, Link road to Seshadripuram Police station, Anand Rao Circle, Sampige road, Kalasipalya, Chamarajpet fourth main road, SC Road, Cubbon Park, Dhanvanthri road and Magadi road. According to residents in Chamrajpet, fourth main road was asphalted just 10 days ago, but it has already damaged. Many small potholes have turned into huge craters.
