BANGALORE: The High Court has refused to pass an interim order on civil works regarding formation of the 9.2-km link road connecting Yeshwanthpur to Yelahanka through the University of Agricultural Sciences campus.
Hearing a petition filed by seven former vicechancellors and Environmental Support Group and others, the division bench headed by PD Dinakaran fixed December 11 as the final date for hearing.
The petitioners have claimed that the formation of the road would hamper research work, which could indirectly affect the food security of the country.
However, the Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike counsel KN Puttegowda argued that the formation of the road was completed, except asphalting, and that the road will help lakhs of commuters going to BIAL.
The formation of the road was opposed by the Board of Regents of UAS on May 29.
The petitioners had objected to the cutting of trees in the University of Agricultural Sciences campus.
