Parking fees plan: what more can we do? 20.5.2017 Citizen Matters

BBMP's proposal to begin charging people to park on the streets can seem like a long-overdue scheme. But while the principle of charging for public space seems reasonable, we should do more than that. We should set targets for what we hope...

OFCs meant to go underground, but firms still lay them overhead 20.5.2017 deccanherald.com
Optical fibre cables (OFC) continue to be an eyesore even on TenderSURE roads, by remaining overhead though these cables were supposed to go underground, beneath the pavements. TenderSURE roads were planned in a manner that all utilities are shifted beneath the pavement. BBMP has laid ducts and chambers for these cables on TenderSURE roads, but they have not been used so far. When Chief Minister Siddaramaiah was inaugurating five TenderSURE roads early this week, five youths were laying overhead cables at the junction of Residency Road and St Mark's Road, where the TenderSURE works have been completed. Sources in BBMP said they had directed the telecom firms at a meeting to shift the OFCs. The companies had sought one-year time to shift them, they said. Engineer-in-chief of BBMP M R Venkatesh said the Palike was not insisting that OFCs be shifted from overhead to underground for the time being, because abrupt removal of cables would disrupt information and communication services. "There are many ...

Neglected Yeshwantpur craves for attention 20.5.2017 deccanherald.com
The contrast between core Bengaluru and the newly added areas comprising 110 villages was stark. While areas under core Bengaluru get all the attention and their demands are met, the outskirts, including villages under the Yeshwantpur Assembly constituency, continue to crave for basic civic amenities like water, underground drains, streetlights and law and order. Residents of Yeshwantpur Assembly constituency rarely had an audience with government officials. But on Saturday, they got an opportunity to air their civic woes and get them addressed instantly when DH and Prajavani offered them a platform through their popular interactive programme 'Janaspandana - Citizens for Change'. A host of government officials and public representatives, including Yeshwantpur MLA S T Somashekar, offered solace to the aggrieved citizens who had turned up in good numbers at BEL Layout near Magadi Road. Jyothi Nagaraj of Herohalli set the pace for the programme when she pointed out that there was no swimming pool or ...

Tarred beyond road level 20.5.2017 Deccan Herald - News
Twenty years back, when Simon Philip shifted to his new home in Annasandrapalya near HAL, he had to climb two steps from the road to reach the front door. Today, the house is three feet below the road level and gets flooded in a jiffy even for the lightest rain. One close look at the road and the answer would be clear: It was asphalted at least three times in the last two decades. But every time, the layer of broken tar and ballast underneath was not removed before the surface was asphalted afresh. Roads across Bengaluru - in the Central Business District or on the outskirts - face the same problem of poor design, execution and quality that triggers the levelling issue. The haphazard patchwork repair of the roads cut by civic agencies including the Bangalore Water Supply and Sewerage Board (BWSSB), Bangalore Electricity Supply Company (Bescom), private and public telecom players, have only made it worse. Milling solution So, how do you ensure that the road level remains the same as that of the houses and ...

Milling a costly affair: BBMP 20.5.2017 Deccan Herald - News
Core areas of Bengaluru are sinking, courtesy the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP), which performs the annual ritual of asphalting roads. Many houses in core Bengaluru are now below the road level. A heavy downpour would be sufficient to flood these houses and convert them into swimming pools of sorts with no place for the water to drain out. Technically, the BBMP should mill the road before asphalting them. Milling the road means scratching the existing layer of tar by at least two inches before asphalting it. However, the Palike never does it. The asphalting of roads has been outsourced by the BBMP and the contractors never bother to mill the road, in order to save money. A Palike engineer says that earlier there used to be a provision to mill the roads in the tender conditions but now it has also been removed. "All that the contractors do is put another layer of asphalt over the battered road in the name of improving roads. This benefits the contractor but people suffer because of it," says ...
