BANGALORE: Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BMP) Commissioner K. Jairaj on Wednesday reviewed the progress of roadworks being taken up under the Karnataka Municipal Reforms Project (KMRP).

Expressing displeasure over the delay in the execution of the 1, 2 and 3 packages under this project, the Commissioner directed the contractors entrusted with these works — K.N.R. Constructions and R.N. Shetty Infrastructure — to deploy more workers and get the work completed at the earliest.

According to an official release, the contractors had promised the Commissioner that work on all 29 roads under these packages would be completed before the onset of monsoon in June.

"As per the agreement, work on all these roads is supposed to be completed by November 2007. The BMP will request the traffic police to cooperate with the contractors in completing these works," the release said.

The Assistant Executive Engineer of Basavanagudi Range on Wednesday got the stretch of pavement from R.V. Teachers' College on R.V. Road up to Minerva Circle cleared of all obstructions. BMP men removed plastic sheets, boards, hoardings and signboards that were projecting outside the shops and obstructing pedestrian movement, the release added.

DPAR inspection

A team of officials from the Department of Personnel and Administrative Reforms (DPAR), who on Tuesday started a weeklong inspection of BMP head office and other zonal offices, inspected the BMP zonal office situated near Bashyam Park on Sampige Road.


According to an official circular, the team will visit the Bangalore Mahanagara Palike's office complex on Queens' Road on Thursday and those on the Channammanakere Achukattu on Friday and Saturday.

The BMP offices in Gandhinagar will be inspected on Wednesday and those situated in Mayo Hall will be checked on Thursday.
