BMP to enforce protocol on road digging

BMP to enforce protocol on road digging
New Indian Express

The Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BMP) has revised the protocol for digging roads by BWSSB, BESCOM, BSNL and other agencies.

While the civic body receives all the flak for bad roads, the utilities get away with the damage they cause to the roads. The civic body has stopped all digging to lay optical fibre cables and would allow work only by HDD (Horizontal Directional Digging) technique.

“The civic body needs greater cooperation from other service providers. While it is mandatory to obtain BMP permission to dig roads, there is haphazard cutting of arterial and sub-arterial roads. BMP will ask all agencies to follow the protocol and take care to close the trenches after the work has been completed.”

Harsh Gupta, Joint Commissioner (Works), Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BMP)
