More projects this year from BBMP
The Times of India

While plans are being drawn on Greater Bangalore by the Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagar Palike (BBMP), many projects involving lakes, footpaths, playgrounds, public toilets, parks and crematoria in the city will be given a fillip in the ensuing budget. Sources in the BBMP say, "in the coming budget, to be presented in early March, infrastructure projects would be fully supported. Playgrounds in Pottery Town, Shivajinagar, and Jayanagar, Ambedkar Stadium Phase III and the Rajiv Gandhi Multipurpose Sports Complex will be taken up this year. Coming to putting in place the muchneeded road infrastructure, the BBMP has divided the city into three corridors for a comprehensive solution - south, west and east under the three zones of the BCC.
South Corridor Under the South Corridor the BCC has planned a sixlane road from Sirsi Circle to Bangalore University and a feasibility report is awaited. Apart from this, grade separators and flyovers are planned at South End Circle, Minerva Circle, Kanakapura Ring Road junction, Kittur Rani Chennamma Circle, RV Teachers College, Ramakrishna Ashram, Tagore Circle, and Mission Road. Tenders have been called for Minerva and South-End Circle flyovers.
West Corridor
Under this corridor, grade separators and flyovers have been proposed at MES Road (Ring Road/railway station), Peenya Dasarahalli, Yeswanthpur, and Malleswaram. Some projects that could not take off or were not completed last year will be taken up and completed this year including the Vijaynagar-Magadi Road junction.
East Corridor
East Corridor has two flyover projects at Trinity Circle and Balekundri Circle.
