Underpass to be ready by Friday

BANGALORE: Work on the “ready-to-fit” underpass at Cauvery junction is going on in full swing and is likely to be completed only by February 1.

After officials from the civic body recovered an encroached property near the work site, work on reconstruction of the side drain and the pavement is on, BBMP Chief Engineer (Major Roads) K.S. Krishna Reddy said.

“Soil nailing on one side of the underpass on Bashyam Circle side has been completed and work on the other side has started. Construction of ‘wing walls’ is nearing completion and sub-grading of the roads has started,” he explained.

He said the facility would be ready in the next three days and work on a similar underpass at BDA junction would start after that. “We are ensuring that the problems we faced in the first project do not repeat. The BWSSB has already started shifting utility lines and all care would be taken to meet the deadline in the second project,” he added.
