More than 30 Sarjapur residents staged a protest on Friday against the illegal encroachment of the Sompura and Yamare lake. They alleged that the authorities have failed to take any action to stop the encroachment and illegal construction over the buffer zone around the lakes. "The lake at Sompura is encroached by private builders now. They have turned the lake bed into a pathway to their apartments," said Raicy, an activist from the Voice of Sarjapur citizen group. The residents believe the authorities are complicit with these encroachers."The Yamare village panchayat has been accepting bribes to turn the buffer zones into deadpan lands,"Raicy added. She accused the Yamare panchayats chairman of not paying any heed to the requests of conserving the lake. The Yamare Lake-which is a seasonal one- is facing a slow death, according to the residents due to unruly dumping, "The lakebed when not in season, is used by villagers for cattle-grazing.

Divided roads, risky walks 31.3.2018 Deccan Herald - News
When there is absolutely no effort to curtail the explosive vehicular growth, the grossly understaffed traffic police will obviously struggle. But does this justify a badly designed plan to erect high dividers that have narrowed carriageways, reduced traffic flexibility and severely hampered pedestrian mobility on roads across Bengaluru? The big argument is that these dividers force pedestrians and vehicles to stick to one side. But in doing so, the concept of dynamic medians based on directional traffic density seems compromised. Lakhs of pedestrians are now being forced to walk long distances to risk crossing the road at notoriously busy intersections. Those inaccessible monster skywalks are the only option. Pedestrian-unfriendly Aided by traffic lights, zebra crossings at regular intervals away from the congested junctions should have helped a pedestrian-first approach to mobility. But the high dividers completely rule out such crossings. The intention is clear: To help motorised vehicles zoom along ...
