BMP lacks planning

BMP lacks planning
New Indian Express

The roads in the city have not been seeing any progress and other infrastructure like grade separators and subways have not solved traffic problem of the city.

The Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BMP) had declared widening of 84 roads, about 16 subways and 6 grade separators apart from taking up annual facelift to the roads.

The city is yet to see any results. ”The Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BMP) lacks planning and timely execution of projects. The civic body does not take all aspects of the projects into consideration.

Ongoing grade separator works in Malleswaram is an example. The residents protested faulty design of the project and not the work per se. It was stalled for a while and government promised to review but the work now has resumed without any change as suggested by residents.

The footpath is not designed as per norms and consequent traffic flow in link road is not addressed. The faulty design continues.”
