Work on KH Road to be completed soon

A separate drainage system has been developed under the concreted stretch, where the perforated base will enable collection and channelising of water into the side drains. Renovation of shoulder drains and side drains have also been taken up on KH Road.

Diversions, traffic jams and unruly chaos dominate on KH Road, thanks to the ongoing construction work undertaken by BMP on the rain-affected stretch. The work is on for three months now adding to the woes of Bangaloreans. But BMP now promises that the upgradation work will be completed within a fortnight.

BMP Chief Engineer Gopalswamy said the BMP has opted for concreting the 100-metre collapsed stretch so that the condition of roads remains good for at least the next 35 years. “The road upgradation work has been slow, but we are doing it thoroughly. We chose to concrete the stretch because of the high density of traffic and a high water table. Asphalting would not help under such conditions, but concrete is durable,” he said.

The concreting work will cost Rs 15 lakh, three times the cost of road asphalting.
