New flyover from Koramangala to Ejipura to cut travel time by 30 mins 24.7.2017 Deccan Herald - City
Chief Minister Siddaramaiah on Monday laid the foundation stone for a 2.4-km-long flyover from Kendriya Sadan in Koramangala to Ejipura Main Road junction.

Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) Commissioner N Manjunath Prasad said: "About 15,000 vehicles pass through this route every day and motorists will be able to save 30 minutes once the flyover opens. The flyover will have a cycle track along with a footpath." The flyover project, which received budgetary allocation in 2016-17, is expected to be completed by January 2019.

Residents ask CM: you want our votes or new zoning rules? 23.7.2017 Deccan Herald - City
The chief minister of Karnataka will soon be receiving postcards from citizens all over the city, asking if he wants them to choose his government in the 2018 Assembly election or settle for the new Common Zoning Regulations. Residents Welfare Associations (RWAs) have begun a campaign against the proposed zoning regulations which were notified on July 1. They are concerned that the new rules will allow commercial establishments in residential areas, disturbing peace in their neighbourhood and stretching limited resources. RWAs across the city are now busy writing postcards addressed to Chief Minister Siddaramaiah. "Keeping in mind the 2018 elections in the state, we are writing sarcastic comments about whether the chief minister wants us to choose his government or the new zoning rules," said Somayaji, member of the J P Nagar 4th Phase RWA. The RWA is also mobilising citizens to send in their objections to the Urban Development Department. "We will send objections too but we don't know if they will ...

Elevated expressway to be shut during night for repairs 22.7.2017 deccanherald.com
The Hosur Road Elevated Expressway will be closed for a month between 12.30 am and 6 am for servicing of the expansion joints. According to a spokesperson of the Bangalore Elevated Tollway Project, "This was a routine servicing of the expansion joints. As many as 40 joints required servicing since they had been damaged over a period of time." The servicing of the joints was necessary since gaps had been formed at the expansion joints due to exposure to weather. The rubber between the blocks acts as a cushion for the expansion and the contraction of asphalt. The work is expected to be completed in a month's time. "There were reports of people falling off their vehicles when the wheels got stuck in the expansion joints. The servicing of the road is being undertaken to reduce this," the spokesperson said. The traffic inspector of the Electronics City police station said only one side of the flyover will be closed during the repair work at night, while the other side will be left open for traffic. It will ...
