Feasibility study for railway infra near Yeshwantpur

BBMP's road infra head to submit report in a week

The BBMP has ordered to prepare a feasibility report for the construction of a railway overbridge and an underpass near the RTO office in Yeshwantpur.

Following an inspection by Mayor R Sampath Raj, BBMP commissioner N Manjunath Prasad and RR Nagar MLA N Munirathna also surveyed the place on Saturday morning.

Senior officials have instructed the road infrastructure wing of the BBMP to prepare a detailed project report (DPR) and immediately start the work.

The project includes four major works: construction of the railway underpass from the Mohan Kumar Main Road in Mathikere to Pipeline Road near Golden Grand Apartment;  construction of a railway overbridge on HMT Road; construction of a grade separator between HMT Road and Pipeline Road; and the construction of an underpass between Tumakuru Road and Subroto Mukherjee Junction (Aiyappa Temple Road, Jalahalli).

The mayor said S Somashekar, chief engineer, road infrastructure, BBMP, has been given the responsibility to complete the feasibility report in one week's time so that the work can begin at the earliest.

However, Somashekar was not available for comments, despite repeated calls.
