Doing everything to fix potholes: BWSSB to court

The BWSSB on Friday submitted to the Karnataka High Court its first status report with regard to action taken on addressing the pothole issue in the city.

A division bench headed by Chief Justice Dinesh Maheshwari was hearing a public interest litigation on the menace of potholes.

The report says the BWSSB is extending support to the BBMP. It says that whenever manholes were to be raised to the road level, it did so to ensure a smooth surface. The spots which required wet mixing with full compaction have been completed and the surfaces levelled. 

The report says that a consumer who intends to have connections to his house shall take permission for road-cutting from the BBMP, following which the BWSSB will process the sanction for connection. The BBMP will asphalt the road thereafter.
