Commuters demand sustainable, well-planned infrastructure 9.12.2017 Deccan Herald - News
Bengaluru flyovers are constructed only to be demolished or redesigned later. This has come to the fore once again with the Jayadeva flyover scheduled to be demolished soon for a Metro line on the same path. Many feel that such mega projects should be meticulously planned to avoid disasters as it involves human resource, time and money. DH speaks to a cross-section of Bengalureans to ascertain their views on such unplanned projects. One of them, Manjunath Basavaraju, Regional Procurement Manager, Danske IT opines that flyovers in the city have been built unscientifically. He explains, "A few of them are too small while others are lengthy without proper planning. They are not built to ease traffic along a stretch but only to decongest a specific intersection. This is wrong. These flyovers should be built with an intention to decongest multiple intersections on a long stretch. The entry and exit points should have enough room for motorists to pass through." Basavaraju also laments that these flyovers are ...

What code did you use to build flyovers, HC questions Palike 6.12.2017 deccanherald.com
The Karnataka High Court has asked the BBMP to provide construction codes used to build flyovers in the city such as vertical clearance and gradient. Hearing a petition on building of the Sivananda flyover, a division bench of acting Chief Justice H G Ramesh and Justice P S Dinesh Kumar sought the details in the next hearing to make a decision on the matter. The BBMP council argued before the bench that flyovers in Bengaluru do not need 5.5 m vertical clearance since such an elevation is necessary only in places where there are more freight movement and double-decker buses in operation. Reiterating that the Indian Road Congress guidelines are not mandatory, the council said the construction of the Sivananda flyover would have been aborted if there were safety issues. "We are trying our best to follow the IRC guidelines, but it is extremely difficult to follow them in the existing conditions," the council said. The bench enquired if other flyovers in the city are built using a similar construction code or ...

Crowdsourcing heritage list, the democratic way 6.12.2017 deccanherald.com
Citizens identify and compile a comprehensive list of heritage buildings, structures and traditions in every BBMP ward. The list then gets filtered, analysed and routed to the state government for formulating a planned heritage conservation strategy. This is the big idea behind a new public campaign slowly gaining traction, both offline and online. Conceptualised as part of the #HeritageBeku campaign, this crowdsourcing initiative is about democratising heritage conservation, a bottom-up approach. "Unless you have lived in a particular place/ward, you will never notice the heritage value of the location. It could be a building, a tree, a lake or even a location rooted in local history," explains civic activist Priya Chetty-Rajagopal. Compilation of the heritage list will take two routes: A formal approach that involves the ward corporator, and an informal, participatory route where active citizens are invited to share their list. "The plan is to get citizens who want to be on the ward committees lead ...
