For safe commute, women in city can hail pink autos 8.11.2017 Deccan Herald - City
After providing dedicated parking space for women, the Bruhath Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) is set to launch pink autorickshaws in the city for the fairer sex. According to the BBMP, the pink autorickshaw is reserved only for women and children. The drivers could be male or female. These autos will be distributed under the BBMPs social welfare scheme. BBMP Mayor Sampath Raj says that of the 300-400 autos to be distributed under the welfare scheme, 20% will be pink autos. "The autos will be launched in January 2018. After assessing the response, we will add more pink autos," the mayor said. "We want to make them woman-friendly and these pink autos are meant only for women who are not accompanied by men," he added. Responding to the concept, a few citizens questioned the autos safety measures. "The concept is really good, but safety will still be a concern whether it is pink or black. In spite of the presence of GPS, CCTV cameras and other safety systems all over, there are many harassment cases," ...

Gridlock on potholed ORR makes commuting a nightmare 16.10.2017 deccanherald.com
Waterlogged roads, traffic snarls and potholes have turned the Ecospace service road on the Outer Ring Road (ORR) Bellandur into a living hell. The road which is home to a host of IT biggies, MNCs and many upscale city residential clusters is a nightmare for motorists, pedestrians and residents alike. Incessant rains over the last few days caused the Savalkere Lake to overflow onto Ecospace road. Police were seen struggling to handle traffic from late in the night until the early hours of Monday. Savalkere Lake near the Ecospace service road overflowed and water gushed on to the ORR causing waterlogging at the tech park RMZ Ecospace on the arterial road. Savalkere is one of the largest lakes in the city. According to local residents, most part of the lake is encroached upon by illegal builders, causing blockages and silting of rajakaluves (stormwater drains). There are five lakes around Sarjapur. If one lake overflows, the water should flow through the drain to another lake. The water overflowing in ...

Citizens' participation in governance took another step forward at the Beku Beda Sante on Sunday as NGOs, resident welfare associations and even passersby walked in to show their concern for the city. As speakers on the stage highlighted various issues, including garbage, floods and bad roads, six-year-old children to teenagers engaged with them by pinning their views onto a notice board using red ribbons for their objections and green ones to put forward demands. "We need good roads in Rajajingar, not potholes. Small roads need light and space for bicycles," wrote 14-year-old Ashwini S. The Sante was an effort by organisations like Citizens for Bengaluru and Namma Bengaluru Foundation and others to keep alive the culture of public participation, which started as a protest against the plan to fell trees for a steel flyover. On a makeshift stage, activists of various organisations spoke out against the government's tendency to ignore the public while planning projects and making policies. Theatreperson ...
