Row over road continues

Row over road continues
DH News Service, Bangalore:

The row over motorable space on Vittal Mallya Road took another turn on Tuesday, when a high-level team constituting senior officials of Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike and Bangalore Water Supply and Sewerage Board inspected the road.

Residents of the road maintained that despite the demolition of the forecourt of a commercial complex on the road, the road width was yet to be reverted to the original 15 metres. Officials on Tuesday took measurements of the road and also inspected the road plans for around two hours.

BBMP is reportedly tallying the plans with the original plans and will submit a report soon. Some residents of P G D’Souza Layout pointed out that the road width varied at different points, and at some points, it was only 13.6 metres.

Residents have been contending that the forecourt of commercial complex UB City, apart from flawed drains, ate into the motorable road space.

Deccan Herald had, in May this year, reported the issue, following which the BBMP initiated action and demolished the forecourt.

Tuesday’s inspection by BBMP high-level team follows the residents’ continuing efforts to ensure the original road length.
