BMP extends deadline for KMRP road work

BMP extends deadline for KMRP road work
The Times of India

Bangalore: Acknowledging that there had been a lapse in meeting deadlines on the KMRP (Karnataka Municipal Reforms Package) roads, because of tardy contractors, BMP officials on Saturday said the extended deadline now stands at November end.
Under the first phase,
the roads were supposed to have been completed in October, so far the rate of progress stands at 40 per cent, says BMP. “Work was very slow because we had some trouble with the RCC drain. The 80 feet road in Koramangala was in a bad shape but under KMRP 70 per cent progress has been made,” explained BMP officials. Incidentally, the high court-appointed panel on roads has pulled up BMP for slow progress and “poor quality” work on these World Bank-funded roads.
