The retaining walls on either side of the drain are being built. The work will be completed on Sunday and walls will need 2 days of curing. Traffic could be allowed from Wednes- day Chikkarayappa BBMP chief engineer We have to con- sider the safety of commuters before allow- ing traffic to ply on the stretch. Until the work is totally com- pleted there is no question of allowing the vehicles on this road Pravin Sood ACP (traffic and security)
The emergency drain repair work taken up by BBMP on the Residency Road-Brigade Road junction on September 8 is yet to be completed. Motorists are still forced to take roundabout routes and deal with traffic snarls in the area and there is no telling when the work will be completed.

Though BBMP claims to have completed the work, the police is not ready to allow traffic, saying the road on either side of the drain is a death trap for motorists. ACP (traffic and security) Pravin Sood said that apart from ensuring smooth traffic movement, commuters’ safety has to be considered before allowing traffic on the stretch.

According to BBMP officials, if the work had not been done on the storm water drain, the road could have caved in.
