Sarjapur Rd widening: property losers plan to move court 23.9.2017 Deccan Herald - City
More than 120 property owners have submitted their objections to the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) against widening of Sarjapur Road from Iblur Junction to Chikkanayakanahalli. They are also planning to move the court if the Palike did not address their concerns. The BBMP plans to widen the road for introducing cycle tracks and to accommodate metro train which may come up in the area in the coming days. "It is true that there is no plan for metro on this stretch. But we have to widen the road in such a way that there will not be any problems in future" said a senior BBMP official.

Besides, property owners will be compensated only through issue of transferable development rights (TDR). They have no option to claim compensation in the form of money. Chinnappa Reddy, who runs ...

Explore alternatives to widening of Sarjapur Road, says ex-MLA 14.8.2017 Deccan Herald - News
The government is bent on widening Sarjapur Road instead of widening alternative roads, said former MLA B V Ramachandra Reddy. Reddy has formed the Committee Fighting Widening of Sarjapur Road to oppose the proposed widening of the road. Reddy said widening of road from Marathahalli to Electronics City will reduce traffic from Koramangala, HSR Layout and other surrounding places. "Such is the planning of BBMP that it brings traffic to the city only to divert it later. It is causing regular traffic jams," said Reddy. He suspected vested interests of powerful people in the widening of Sarjapur Road. He opined that big realtors who have invested on Sarjapur Road must be pushing for widening the road. Reddy claimed that at least 16 flats of an apartment will give way for widening of the road. The BBMP is insisting that land losers should accept transferable development rights (TDR) instead of monetary compensation as demanded by the committee members. On the other hand, the committee wants compensation to be ...

Awareness march on tree translocation 12.8.2017 deccanherald.com
More than 60 citizens marched from ITPL grounds to Hope Farm in Whitefield on Saturday to create awareness about the alternatives to cutting down trees.

Inspired by the translocation of trees at Sarjapur, Vandana Kaul, a resident of Kadugodi led the march to create awareness among citizens and government officials about translocation of trees. Kaul happened to see more than 50 trees in Whitefield marked for felling to make way for Metro's Phase 2.

"The government should think of the coming generation. The city is thriving because of the green cover. We are trying to get help from a few companies to translocate trees ourselves," said Kaul.

During the March, tree activist Vijay Nishanth made a presentation on how Bengaluru had the most tree varieties in the world.
