To raise the issue of age-old trees being cut down due to the recent road-widening work at Sarjapur, an awareness walk was held by Sarjapur Resident Welfare Association (SRWA). The RWA members, who in the recent past have witnessed felling of a number of trees due to road-widening on Dommasandra-Sarjapur Circle, pressured the state government to look at possibilities of replanting and relocating these old trees before the next phase of road-widening is implemented on Sarjapur-Attibele Road. "The road-widening work is being undertaken by Karnataka Public Works Department (PWD). We became aware of the issue only after the road work started and are now doing our best to save at least the banyan and peepal trees.

When every drop counts 15.3.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
As Bengalureans gear up for a scorching summer, a major problem staring them in the face is the shortage of water. For most households that don't have Cauvery water supply, water tankers are the only solution but the arbitrary pricing by tanker operators has left a lot of people worried. Some of the areas that regularly depend on water tankers are Thanisandra, Bommasandra, Sarjapur Road, Marathahalli, Whitefield, K R Puram, Horamavu and Bagalur. The price of tankers with a capacity of 4,000 to 7,000 litres is anywhere betweenRs 400 to Rs 800 per tanker. Rashmi Murthy, a resident of Kothanur, says that she is forced to buy water at least three times a week. "The water tankers don't come as soon as I call them. So I have to make sure that I call them well in advance. Also, there is no fixed rate and we are forced to pay whatever rate they ask for," says Rashmi. Bangalore Water Supply and Sewerage Board (BWSSB) has its own fleet of water tankers but their limited numbers make it difficult for them to reach ...
