BBMP to widen 21 roads soon

Bangalore, Dec 2, DHNS:

A massive demolition drive is in the offing along some important roads, as the Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike will soon launch 21 road widening projects.

 
According to the BBMP sources, the road widening drive will be taken on Kanakapura Main Road, Amruthanagar Main Road, Yalchenahalli Main Road, Gubbalalu Main Road, Gubbalalu 100 feet Link Road, Vaajarahalli Main Road, Vaddarapalya Main Road, Kammanahalli Road, Hommadevanahalli Road, Sarjapur Main Road, Halanayakanahalli Road, Rayasandra Road, Begur Koppa Road, Kodi Chikkanahalli Main Road, Begur Hosur Road, Kammanahalli Begur Main Road, Hulimavu Begur Road, Hulimavu Hosur Road, Parappana Agrahara Main Road, Koodlu Road and AECS Layout Main Road.

The BBMP has planned to widen Kanakapura Road by 45 metres all along a stretch of 8.1 km, starting from JP Nagar 15th Cross to NICE Road, which would cover Yelchenahalli, Konanakunte Cross and Talaghattapura.

Amruthanagar Road from Khode’s Glass Factory to Anjanapura would be widened by 24 metres, Yelchenahalli Road from Kanakapura Main Road to ISRO Layout 10th Cross by 12 metres, Gubbalalu Main Road and Gubbalalu 100 feet Road would be widened by 18 metres and 24 metres, respectively. Wajarahalli Main Road, Waddarpalya Main Road, Kammanahalli Road, Begur Koppa Road, Parappana Agrahara Road and AECS Layout Main Road would be widened by 24 metres. Sarjapur Main road would be widened by 45 metres on a stretch of 4.5 km.


Tannery Road

The Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike started the process of road widening work on Tannery Road. There was a growing demand for the widening of the road which was very narrow. The BBMP persuaded people to give up their properties to ease traffic congestion. Many residents have reportedly agreed to it and voluntarily purchased TDR but there was resistance against this road widening project and the BBMP is persuading them, said BBMP sources.
