The road that remains elusive

Members of the Navy Layout Welfare Association want the civic authorities and the local corporator to provide an alternative road to their locality.

Residents of Navy Layout near Chimney Hills, Hesaraghatta Main Road, have no approach road after the Air Force closed the stretch last year citing security reasons. 

Members of the Navy Layout Welfare Association want the civic authorities and the local corporator to provide an alternative road to their locality. They raised the grievance at ‘Janaspandana-Citizens For Change’, a civic interactive platform organised by DH-Prajavani on Saturday. 

Anand Chaurasia, a resident of Navy Layout, said the locality with 10 homes had been cut off from Hesaraghatta Main Road, their gateway to the outside world. “The BBMP provided a road following several representations, but it is blocked by a BWSSB pipeline. It’s difficult to reach the main road,” he complained. 

Bagalkunte corporator K Narasimha Nayak conceded that the BBMP had failed to identify civic issues in the locality since it falls in Air Force area. “We failed to take notice of this locality until the last election when we learnt it comes in BBMP limits. We will surely help the residents to get a permanent approach road.” 

The residents also submitted a letter to Dasarahalli  MLA, R Manjunatha, requesting basic facilities like streetlights, borewell and Cauvery water supply.
