BWSSB work in Wilson Garden to go on till March

Bangalore, Nov 22, 2012, DHNS:

The work on replacing Bangalore Water Supply and Sewerage Board’s (BWSSB) sanitary lines in and around Wilson Garden, that is causing huge traffic jam in the area, is expected to go on for another three to four months.

According to an engineer in the waste water management section of BWSSB, it is expected to be completed only by May 2013. He said nearly 40-year-old pipelines from Siddapura to Wilson Garden upto a length of 8 km ( 400 mm in dia meter) will be replaced with pipe lines that are 450 mm in dia meter. An amount of Rs six crore is being spent on this particular stretch.

He said although main roads are not part of the work, the BTS road in Wilson Garden will be affected for the next 15 days as huge pipelines will have to be laid. The engineer said that the Board will also take up restoration work of the road as per the work order of the project. The environment action plan project taken up by BWSSB in a phased manner will have zero sewage flowing in stormwater drains. 

The Board has already completed the work in Hebbal and HAL areas where sewage water has been completely diverted to the newly laid lines. These lines have been channelised to feed the sewage treatment plants.
