Nettakallappa Circle underpass opposed

Nettakallappa Circle underpass opposed

As if the mess unleashed by the Tagore Circle underpass and Metro Rail projects is not enough, another needless underpass may be foisted on citizens at Nettakallappa Circle, one of the few areas preserving the old charm of Bangalore, if BBMP’s fancy-free corporators have their way.

The foolhardy proposal was floated by Basavanagudi corporator and ruling BJP’s leader in the Corporation council, Katte Satyanarayana, at a felicitation function organised by his ward residents to honour him and another corporator Sadashiva on Saturday.

The residents merely requested the corporator to instal a traffic signal at Nettakallappa Circle. To this, their corporator promptly offered an underpass, provided they approved of it.
The corporator said an underpass could be constructed with an east to west alignment. The nonplussed residents later told Deccan Herald that a traffic light would more than meet their need and there was no need for an underpass.

The residents also sought the eviction of footpath vendors in Gandhi Bazaar, laying footpaths on the lines of ones at UB City, asphalting of DVG Road, painting the road and speeding up the pipeline laying work by BWSSB on DVG Road.
