Bangaloreans find their voice

Bangaloreans find their voice

Bangalore: Bangaloreans got an opportunity to air their views on Saturday. They argued and fought to get their voices heard by people they had elected. They grabbed the mikes and poured out their ire on the officials. While some complained of bad connectivity, improper planning and other problems, some farmers whose lands have been notified for peripheral ring road project also protested vociferously. Some suggestions put forth at the summit:
Doreswamy of PES: Remove obstacle between Tumkur Road and Hosur Road, the NICE stretch. Crate a corridor from Sarjapur to Hosur.
Balakrishna Hegde, builders association: Curb visual pollution —banners and cut-outs of politicians. Wide underpasses needed. B R Srinivas Murthy, IISc: Take more experts in committees. Connect high-speed rail to BIA from Dairy Circle instead of city centre.
Have web-based portal for road cutting sanctions
Keep HAL airport open.
Allow higher FAR in some areas. Flyovers for light vehicles only. Reduce water leakage to 15%. Places like Race Course and Bangalore Palace Grounds should be kept as open lung spaces.
Roshan Baig, Shivajinagar MLA:
Supply unpotable water for nondrinking purposes and potable water for drinking. Hawkers’ zones and food zones to ease traffic movement Direct garbage collection Prevent footpaths from becoming an extension of shops as this causes great inconvenience to pedestrians.
