Cheers to vehicle users. The Bangalore Development Authority will construct multiple flyovers to decongest traffic. Speaking to Bangalore Mirror after a review meeting with Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa and other officials, BDA commissioner Siddaiah said, “We are constructing eight flyovers at a cost of Rs 760 crore to create a signal-free stretch from Silk Board to Hebbal on the Outer Ring Road.”
Already, two flyovers are being constructed at Iblur and Agara. The construction of eight other flyovers will begin by June.
NEWLY-ADDED AREAS
The BDA will take up development works on the outskirts of the city, which is a part of Greater Bangalore. “New projects, 1,544 in all, will be taken up at a cost of Rs 623 crore in the newly-acquired BBMP land,” he said. The BDA has also been entrusted with the task of constructing more hospitals. “The chief minister has asked us to build hospitals on the lines of Victoria and Bowring in all four parts of the city. BDA has also been directed to allot suitable sites for the project,” he said. Another meeting will be held with officials to discuss development works on May 24 and 25. BBMP had set a target of collecting Rs 700 crore as tax and achieved it this year.
MEET WITH IT CAPTAINS Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa will soon hold a meeting of industry captains to discuss Obama’s ‘Buffalo’ remark. “The US President’s remarks will not affect Bangalore companies much. However, the government does not want to take chances and will discuss the issue with the IT leaders.”
