Bad repair work irks new corporator

Bad repair work irks new corporator
Instructs Road Coating Should Be 3-4 Inches Thick

Bangalore: A 100-feet concrete stretch on 7th Main, 7th Cross, Subbayyan Palya, has grabbed many eyeballs. When repair work began on Monday, not many seemed impressed. And definitely not the new BJP corporator for Banaswadi, A Kodanda Reddy.
At 10 am on Tuesday, Reddy was spotted admonishing workers on the spot: “There’s nothing right about this work,” he said.
Overnight on Monday, almost 90% of this road was covered with fresh coat of concrete. As per set standards, the coating must be 3-4 inches thick. However, measurement in this case revealed the coating was just about an inch thick.
With the supervising engineer unavailable on the spot, work almost came to a halt for sometime. The matter was finally settled by Tuesday afternoon.
The remaining 10% of the road was covered with 4-inchthick concrete. “The engineer should set this right. We will monitor this till the road is completely fixed,” the miffed corporator said.
However, what came in as a surprise was Reddy was oblivious of this work till Tuesday morning.
