Techies' solution for ORR traffic chaos may produce one more flyover 15.12.2017 Deccan Herald - News
The increasing nightmare of traffic snarls on the Outer Ring Road, especially along the stretch connecting the Hebbal flyover and Horamavu, may be eased with a touch of innovation from the tech community. But their idea of adding one more layer to the already confusing labyrinth of flyovers in the area has triggered some concerns. Consultants from Embassy Tech Village have proposed an extra ramp to link Nagawara and Veeranapallya flyovers, with an extension to the Manyata Tech Park. The Embassy Group has agreed to sponsor the project. On Friday, the consultants made a presentation to Bengaluru Development Minister K J George, Mayor Sampath Raj, Additional Chief Secretary, Urban Development, Mahendra Jain and BBMP Commissioner Manjunath Prasad.

Scientists develop simple machine to clear weed 13.12.2017 Deccan Herald - City
The simple and stylish weeding machine at Ulsoor lake has left many onlookers awestruck. The machine is more so unique as it uses the engine of the outdated, yet popular Maruti- 800 car. The scientists from National Aerospace Laboratories (NAL), civilian aerospace R&D laboratory have designed this weed cutting machine called airboat over the past three months. They are now testing it at the MEG side of Ulsoor Lake. S Selvarajan, chief scientist from NAL said that the defence officials cooperated and gave a testing space.

Bellandur residents demand skywalk on Outer Ring Road 6.12.2017 Deccan Herald - News
At least 1,200 residents in and around Bellandur formed a human chain demanding a skywalk anywhere from Bellandur junction to Ibbalur junction in order to prevent accidents in the area. The protesters complained that crossing the road was a nightmare during the peak hours. "The Outer Ring Road has a number of IT companies and more than one lakh cars cross this stretch. We have to wait for hours together to cross the road," said Shonali Singh, a resident of Bellandur. K P Singh of Rainbow Drive Apartments said: "Traffic movement is not just for vehicles, but pedestrians also." The city corporation is just on tenders announcing spree.

Roads to an unhealthy life 5.12.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
Air pollution has become the hallmark of Outer Ring Roads (ORRs) in Bengaluru. Of late, many infrastructure projects are coming up on these roads and are adding to the current problem. People living in and around the area, corporate employees and even traffic cops are facing the ill-effects of this. Shalinee, an equity expert working in Ecospace says, "It has become an ordeal to travel to work on this route. It is highly polluted. During the rains, it gets even more difficult to travel as the road in front of my office submerges in drainage water, which is an outflow of the Bellandur stormwater drain. People find it difficult to step on the road. We have to enter our offices through this water." Says Ravi Kumar, a resident of Bellandur, "People in my apartment get paid water tankers for drinking as we cannot consume the water here. Not only that, at times the stormwater drain stinks badly. Last year, a multi-storey building collapsed next to our apartment. Kids had to suffer a lot due to the dust from ...

Eight juvenile delinquents escaped from the state-run home for boys in Madiwala, South Bengaluru, on Sunday. One of them returned along with his parents hours later. The boys, aged between 16 and 18, cut the iron grille and broke a windowpane in a toilet next to their classroom to sneak out between 2.45 pm and 3 pm, a staff member told DH.
