Dangerous potholes

The stretch of road in front of Aeronautical Development Establishment (ADE) on Suranjan Das Road is well-laid and maintained.

Due to this, vehicles speed up on this stretch only to come to a sudden halt before two deep potholes that have a high potential to damage vehicle’s suspensions.

Many drivers swerve to the wrong side of the road to avoid these potholes which is dangerous and may turn fatal.

Authorities concerned are requested to kindly attend to this problem at the earliest before any one is injured or killed.

Replace transformer

I  am a resident of Nobel Residency Colony under Gottigere division in South Bangalore.

The transformer on 3rd Cross of the Colony is dangerously positioned and is badly maintained.

Our complaints since over an year is falling on deaf ears and every time there is a complaint about single phase or power shutting, the Bangalore Electricity Supply Company (Bescom) authorities take up the repairs in a crude manner.

I am enclosing the photographs clearly showing the dangerously open transformer with fuse wire of no proper rating fixed.

Through your medium I would like to request the authorities to replace the transformer and save us from frequent interruptions and varied voltages.

Road not tarred well

The final touches on the new flyover at HSR towards Silk Board is not good.
The tarring on the road does not cover the metal railings completely and motorists, especially two-wheelers, have a problem driving through this road.

Authorities concerned are requested to look into the issue. Also a dead dog has been lying on flyover near Agara temple towards Marathahalli for the past 10 days. It’s almost rotten. Hope the authorities will clear it soon.

Response: The AEE Vidyaranyapura has inspected the spot. The BWSSB is at present laying sewerage lines (UGA) on this road. The road will be asphalted as soon as the work is over. At present, a proposal has been sent to obtain funds for the ward improvement, so the road can be asphalted after the BWSSB work is over.
