Palike plans Tender SURE to ensure quality

While inspecting some areas in the City on Friday night BBMP commissioner Siddaiah said the civic body would follow Tender SURE, which is an initiative to provide specifications for planning and design of existing roads and new roads. The scheme provides hierarchy of roads like pedestrian, cyclist, two-wheeler or heavy motor vehicles. It offers cyclist paths, on-street parking, travel lanes for vehicles and dedicated public transport lanes. The scheme also includes drains, water, sewage lines, power and ICT lines. If this happens, road cutting could be obliterated. It gives a detail design of footpaths, streetlights, road signage, electrical poles and transformers.

The commissioner also visited Jayanagar, Basavanagudi, Vijayanagar and Chickpet to monitor the progress in filling potholes and garbage disposal. He told the engineers that they should ensure that water should not get stagnated on the road.

Siddaiah later visited MG Road to inspect the ongoing beautification drive.  The Palike has also undertaken the work of beautifying Lakshman Rau Boulevard Park.  The Commissioner instructed the engineer-in-chief that the park should be made attractive before the inauguration of Metro Rail, which is scheduled for October 20.
