After repeated protests and signature campaign by citizens, the BBMP has finally restored the Channasandra-Thirumalashettyhalli road in East Bengaluru.

After repeated protests and signature campaign by citizens, the BBMP has finally restored the Channasandra-Thirumalashettyhalli road in East Bengaluru.

The 1.5-kilometre long road was dug up to lay pipes for the KC Valley project, which resulted in crater-size potholes that made commuting on that stretch a nightmare for the citizens.

The road straddling Kadugodi ward and Hoskote taluk is a crucial link for 20 to 30 villages in the area to Whitefield, Kadugodi and the rest of the city.

Residents, who accused the authorities of taking only temporary measures and not laying the road fully, are breathing easy as the condition of the road has been improving over the past 20 days.

"This is an excellent road as it is three to four inches thicker," said Kumar K, a resident of Kadugodi. "A month ago, the BBMP laid the road in just two days and it was damaged in a few days' time. After that, we urged the BBMP to lay a better road and we never expected it to be so good."

Residents are asking the BBMP to lay speed breakers as soon as possible since the heavy vehicles are zooming at a high speed. "We have also asked the BBMP to install street lights throughout the stretch," added another resident.

A BBMP official said the civic body is carrying out asphalting and drainage works simultaneously. "We will finish the entire work by September," the official assured.

The residents are planning a thanksgiving party for MLA Arvind Limbavali, the corporator and other BBMP officials as soon as the work is completed.
