Encroachments on footpaths removed

Encroachments on footpaths removed

Staff Reporter
Bangalore: The Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) on Saturday cleared encroachments and obstructions on the footpaths that were inconveniencing pedestrians on Siddaiah Road here.

Two earthmovers were deployed for the task on the stretch of Siddaiah Road between from J.C. Road Junction to 12th Cross, Wilson Garden Junction, on footpaths flanking the road, a press release said.

Local people had filed several complaints in this regard, and a month ago, notices were issued to shopkeepers who were told to ensure that the footpaths were free of obstructions. Subsequently, some of them had complied with it.

The BBMP staff took police help during Saturday’s drive, and removed obstructions, from vehicle spare parts to billboards.

Similar drives will commence on the main roads in the south zone, the release added.
