Phase 1 complete but accessing Majestic Metro station a struggle 19.6.2017 deccanherald.com
The first phase of Namma Metro has become operational after nearly a decade but the Kempegowda (Majestic) station, the crucial terminus that gets commuters from both lines besides serving as the interchange, scores low on accessibility. Commuters coming from the Krantivira Sangolli Rayanna (Bengaluru City) railway station, BMTC and KSRTC bus stations are forced to walk on the busy Gubbi Thotadappa Road, putting themselves in a vulnerable position. The main entrance opposite the railway station is supposed to be linked to the existing subway that connects the railway station with the bus stations. While Metro officials have left a passage to be linked to the subway, it has been blocked from the KSRTC bus station side. KSRTC Managing Director S R Umashankar said he had taken up the issue and plans were afoot to link the Metro station's western entrance to the subway. "The Department of Urban Land Transport (DULT) will come up with a design for linking the railway station, BMTC and KSRTC bus stations with ...

Manpower and precious fuel suffer a loss considering that thousands of commuters pass through this stretch. I request the traffic police to consult the experts to ease congestion at this point. George Fernandez Grace Villa, Gangamma Temple Road, Jalahalli ******************************************************************************* Why negotiate with traffic offenders? In many cases of blatant traffic violation, police seem to start a 'negotiation' with the offender. This only gives the impression that police are being lenient and corrupt. It is high-time our under-staffed traffic police became strict in enforcing the law to safeguard the interests of other road users. Nipping a petty offender in the bud will go a long way in setting a welcome precedent and creating a safe and responsible traffic environment. Francis Xavier, No 5, Muniga Layout, ...
