HC: find alternative route for new project

HC: find alternative route for new project
Already Hit By Metro Work, Petitioner Asserts Okalipuram-Yeshwantpur Road Can Be Delayed

Bangalore: The high court on Wednesday issued a notice to BBMP on a PIL relating to the proposed Okalipuram-Yeshwantpur signal-free corridor project.
A division Bench headed by Justice V Gopala Gowda asked the petitioners to produce a topog r ap h i c a l sketch of the area. Then the Bench told the g ove r n m e n t advocate to find an alternative route for smooth traffic in Rajajinagar.
NGO Samarpana filed the PIL, claiming that if the project with six underpasses is undertaken, residents of Rajajinagar will face more hardships, who are already affected by the Metro Project work on Chord Road.
“On July 30, BBMP issued a public notice about taking up the project. On October 26, we sent a letter to the additional commissioner (traffic) about the problems we would face if the corridor project is undertaken... BMRC has already placed barricades on West of Chord Road and Navarang Road, causing traffic jam. If the corridor project is undertaken simultaneously, it will cause us a lot of inconvenience,” the petitioner said.
