Untouched by the recession and buoyed by Chief Minister BS Yeddyurappa's Rs8,200 crore allocation for Bangalore in the interim state budget, the Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) is all set to present a mega budget with an outlay crossing Rs 4,200 crore for the year 2009-10. The budget allocation, which is almost 50 percent higher than the previous year's budget of Rs2,940 crore, would focus on improving road infrastructure and traffic management. It is expected to be presented in a few days.
Sources in the Palike told DNA that around Rs2,000 crore has been earmarked for road infrastructure, including developing the network of roads in Greater Bangalore areas.
