Dairy Circle flyover in troubled waters

The Dairy Circle flyover which has already missed its completion deadline is not expected to be completed before September of this year. The UP State Bridge Corporation which is building the flyover hit a water pipeline underneath the reinforcing wall. The UPSBC says if it goes ahead with the construction the structure could be weakened by water leaks later. The BDA which is in charge of overseeing the project blames the Karnataka Road Development Corporation Limited for shoddy groundwork, which in turn blames the Bangalore Water Supply and Sewerage Board for not providing adequate information. The BWSSB says those pipes, which supply water to Koramangala and HSR Layout were over 20 years old and it did not have maps for it! All in all, be prepared to bear with traffic diversions and chaos on that route for a few more months.
