Koramangala residents face sleepless nights due to non-stop blaring music from pubs 10.4.2018 Deccan Herald - City
Residents of Koramangala 5th Block are facing sleepless nights because of several pubs and bars operating in the residential areas. The cause of worry, according to the residents is the establishments blazing music throughout the night which is disturbing the elderly residents the most. One such pub that is creating trouble for the residents living in its periphery, is located on the Jyoti Nivas Road, opposite to the Beauty Spot Park. "Earlier, it was only during the weekends that the pub played the loud music. But, nowadays, every second day, there is a party and loud music is played until 2 am. I even went to the place to ask them to lower the music, but there was no one to listen to us," said Lalitha, a senior citizen. Shocked to see people sitting out and drinking in broad daylight and having to bear loud music with drunkards making noise throughout the night, a few local residents had even drafted a letter to the Home Minister, Ramalinga Reddy, who is also the local MLA of the area.

Koramangala flyover project moves closer to fruition 8.4.2018 Deccan Herald - City
The BBMP has moved another step towards building the much-needed 2.4-km-long flyover from the Kendriya Sadan junction to the Ejipura Main Road junction in Koramangala, Southeast Bengaluru. The civic body has completed soil and pile tests for the Rs 204-crore project. "We conducted soil as well as pile testing to check whether the underneath of the piers holds good or not. The results are positive," K T Nagaraj, chief engineer, road infrastructure (projects central), BBMP, said. Two months ago, workers started laying 75 piers. The progress has been steady, he added. The flyover will be the longest free expressway in the city after the Sirsi Circle flyover on Mysuru Road. It will provide signal-free connectivity between the Ejipura Main Road-Inner Ring Road junction, the Sony World junction and the Kendriya Sadan junction. Along the way, it will link the Koramangala 8th Main Road junction, Koramangala 60 Feet Road, the Koramangala 5th Block 1A Cross junction and BDA Complex. The project has been awarded to ...

Indiranagar residents to crowdfund PIL against commercialisation 7.4.2018 Deccan Herald - City
The soaring commercialisation of residential localities has now compelled the residents of Indiranagar to crowdfund their efforts to file a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) with the High Court of Karnataka against numerous violations. The residents, under the banner of I Change Indiranagar, decided to take the step after several previous efforts. The residents earlier organised numerous protests, filed a number of court cases against illegal commercial establishments in residential areas, including the opening of rooftop pubs, bars and microbreweries, in the neighbourhood. "The relevant authorities and all the elected representatives are aware of our problems. Yet, they seem to prefer protecting the violators and have vested interests rather than helping us," reads the letter, which has been circulated among residents. The money collected through this process will be eventually used to file a petition in the high court. The umbrella organisation I Change Indiranagar includes eight residents welfare ...

Tardy white-topping of roads jams traffic all around 7.4.2018 Deccan Herald - City
The tardy white-topping (concretisation) of major arterial roads has greatly slowed down traffic, putting enormous pressure on the surrounding areas. The BBMP is concretising 93.4 km of roads at a cost of Rs 900 crore. Once concretised, the roads are expected to last about 30 years. Some of the major roads being concretised are Tumakuru Road (near Goreguntepalya signal), Mysuru Road (from BHEL to Sirsi Circle), Koramangala (20th Main Road to Anepalya), Hosur Road and Basavanagudi. Only one side of these roads is being concretised. Regular commuters are clearly unhappy with the pace of the work. The part of Kanakapura Road, from Prof BS Madhava Rao Circle to Armugam Circle in Basavanagudi, gets choked during peak hours. Praneeth K, a regular commuter, said he started leaving early for work after the work began. "Its difficult to pass through this stretch. I leave home early to escape these traffic jams," he added. Rakshita B M, another regular traveller, highlighted the difficulties faced by ...

With rain forecast, SWD works yet to be completed 4.4.2018 deccanherald.com
With summer rain round the corner and monsoon in a couple of months, residents of the areas prone to flooding are not spared of worry over waterlogging this time either. Although the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) has speeded up desilting and remodelling of stormwater drains (SWDs), it has been able to complete the construction work of the SWDs for a stretch of only 117.9 km out of 842 km. However, it has missed the February deadline to complete 334 km of work. But the pace of the work has improved compared to what it was in 2017. Important works such as constructing retaining wall, linking shoulder drain to the SWDs or even widening the drains have accelerated this year. Out of 408 such works, only 20 of them were complete until May 2017. In a span of one year, by April 2018, 102 such works have been completed. Most of these were pending for many years. While areas surrounding Vrishabhavathi valley and Yeshwantpur have seen certain progress in the work, areas adjoining Koramangala and ...
