The road less taken 11.12.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
Blaring horns and endless traffic jams are an increasingly common sight in Bengaluru. Among a host of initiatives taken by the civic authorities to address this situation, the proposition of the Less Traffic Day stands out. It calls for leaving ones own vehicles at home and using public transport options every alternate Sunday. While the soon-to-be brought-in initiative has fetched encouraging responses from some Bengalureans, others are wondering about the feasibility factor. Mahalakshmi Sanjay, an executive assistant in a bank and resident of Malathahalli, says that this concept might not work for places which do not have frequent bus services. "It is a big struggle for me to find a cab or a bus to reach any place from here. Good bus connectivity is required before such a day is implemented, even if it is on a Sunday. The authorities can look at reducing the fares of authorickshaws and cabs that day," she says. Though carpooling and using public transport has become common, the Less Traffic Day would ...

Commuters demand sustainable, well-planned infrastructure 9.12.2017 Deccan Herald - News
Bengaluru flyovers are constructed only to be demolished or redesigned later. This has come to the fore once again with the Jayadeva flyover scheduled to be demolished soon for a Metro line on the same path. Many feel that such mega projects should be meticulously planned to avoid disasters as it involves human resource, time and money. DH speaks to a cross-section of Bengalureans to ascertain their views on such unplanned projects. One of them, Manjunath Basavaraju, Regional Procurement Manager, Danske IT opines that flyovers in the city have been built unscientifically. He explains, "A few of them are too small while others are lengthy without proper planning. They are not built to ease traffic along a stretch but only to decongest a specific intersection. This is wrong. These flyovers should be built with an intention to decongest multiple intersections on a long stretch. The entry and exit points should have enough room for motorists to pass through." Basavaraju also laments that these flyovers are ...
