Not a fool-proof solution, say citizens 14.10.2017 deccanherald.com
Twenty-nine pothole-infested Bengaluru roads may get white-topped over the next 11 months. Crores of rupees are sanctioned for the deed. However, the citys road-users feel the money pumped into the project will not help the water-logged roads. Common concerns of most residents are quality of roads, maintenance after white-topping and a holistic approach to solving the drainage issue across the city.

Manholes in HSR Layout Sectors 6 and 7, Shanthinagar, Wilson Garden, Shivajinagar, MG Road and Cunningham Road have been overflowing and have not been addressed by the Bangalore Water Supply and Sewerage Board (BWSSB) even a month after they were brought to its notice by the public. The stretch from Shanthinagar bus stand towards the Richmond Circle flyover is the best example. Road users, especially two-wheeler riders, suffer every day. The manhole water flows down the road and since the sewage lines are blocked, the road gets flooded. "You can literally see water ...
