Not formal intimation yet on demolition: BBMP

DH News Service, Bengaluru, Dec 10 2017, 0:05 IST
The Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) is yet to receive any formal intimation from Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Limited (BMRCL) on pulling down the Jayadeva flyover for the second phase of Namma Metro.

However, the Palike officials have extended their complete support to the project. "This project will be connecting important parts of the city such as Silk Board junction, Madiwala, BTM Layout, Koramangala and people coming from Bommanahalli also. The traffic snarls will be solved and the time of commute will be reduced," says BBMP Commissioner N Manjunath Prasad.

BBMP, he informs, has conducted several meetings with BMRCL and the metro work will start soon. BMRCL officials were not available for comments.

Demolition worries

At the Jayadeva junction, getting anxious by the day over the demolition, eatery owner Krishna Murthy worries about this misguided priority. "There is no planning, no ideation. I am forced to wind up my business of 25 years here. Seven big buildings will also go. If they had planned in advance, all this trouble could have been avoided," he laments.

------------------------------------------

What next after demolition?

BMRCL to build 4.5 metre-wide road to provide temporary alternative. Outer Ring Road to be widened.

* A multi-level flyover to take come up as part of the R V Road to Bommasandra Metro line (Phase 2 Reach 5).

* Tenders for the line awarded in July with the RV Road-HSR Layout package, comprising a new flyover, costing Rs 798 crore. BBMP to contribute Rs 100 crore.

* Flyover to facilitate two interchange stations. These will allow passengers to switch between RV Road-Bommasandra and Gottigere-Nagawara line and the Silk Board station connecting the line to the ORR metro.

* Underpass at the flyover to be retained as Level-1 transit from Bannerghatta Road starting from Dairy Circle to Bannerghatta National Park.

* Level-2 transit at ground level road in both the directions above the underpass.

* Level-3 to be an elevated four-lane road. The two Metro lines to be on top of these three road levels.
