BMP racing against deadline to spruce up SJP

BMP racing against deadline to spruce up SJP
Deccan Herald

Come August 15, a walk to the Silver Jubilee Park (SJP) in the rain could be a joy. A concrete pavement from the Town Hall traffic signal will lead you into a ‘rejuvenated’ Park, free from stench and waterlogging. But all this, only if the Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BMP) can pull it off as planned.

“A face-lift to the SJ Park, concrete pavements, a Nirmala toilet on SPJ road and reconstruction of three stormwater drains inside the park will be in place before the deadline,” said BMP Commissioner K Jairaj, on Tuesday, during his surprise visit to SJP and Freedom Park. To expedite the concrete laying work at SPJ road, the BMP Commissioner has sought assistance of the DCP Traffic for traffic diversion.

Meanwhile, the BMP will join hands with the police department for greening the available space near Hotel Chandramohan and the median under the flyover. SKR Market will also get a new look as the flower vending activity will be channelised. Reviewing the progress on the Freedom Park, the Commissioner hoped to see the work progress as per the revised drawings, by July 5.
