BANGALORE: The Bangalore Mahanagara Palike on Monday issued work orders to contractors for improvement of 20 roads in the city. This includes the work of repairing three roads, which were badly affected during the recent heavy rains, and some roads that the multinational companies have been terming as in bad condition.

The BMP issued work orders to KNR Constructions for strengthening and rehabilitation of seven roads under Karnataka Municipal Reform Project, which is being funded by the World Bank.

This includes the 2.5-km stretch of Kammanahalli Main Road; 3.8 km of Ejipura Main Road near Infant Jesus Church; 2.4 km road from N.R. Square to Hosur Road; 5.15 km of Bannerghatta Road; 1.7 km of Kathriguppe Main Road; 2.9 km of Padarayanapura Main Road; and 8.5 km for Magadi Road from Karnataka Bhavan. The estimate of the work on the seven roads is Rs. 31.49 crores.

The BMP has asked the Karnataka Land Army Corporation to carry out works on 11 roads under the fast track scheme. This scheme was chalked out after multinational companies complained about the poor state of infrastructure in the city. Among the 11 works that the KLAC will take up include asphalting of the 1.3 km stretch of M.G. Road between Brigade Road Junction and Trinity Circle Junction and 1.2 km of Dickenson Road. The other works are up-gradation of side walk and asphalting 2.6 km stretch of Airport Road, 1.6 km of Jeevanbheema Nagar Road, 1.5 km of Koramangala 20th Main Road, 0.86 km of Magrath Road, .75 km of Commissariat Road, 2 km of Old Madras Road, 1.85 km of Indiranagar 12th Main Road and 1 km of Koramangala 1st A Cross Road.

The KLAC was also assigned the work of repairing three roads affected during the flash floods. They are the 700-metre stretch of the Silver Jubilee Park Road at a cost of Rs. 2.2 Crores, seven-km of Kaggadasapura Road at Rs. 3.8 crores; and 6.2 km of S.T. Bed Road at Rs. 4 crores. The Chief Minister gave the letter for credit at a function held on Monday.
