Palike to restore Richmond Road shortly

Motorists on Richmond Road, who have been having a harrowing time for the past six months, can finally heave a sigh of relief, as the Palike will be restoring the road in a week’s time.

The stretch of the road running parallel to MG Road, near Trinity Circle, is in a horrid state. Navigating craters on the damaged road is a nightmare to motorists.

The BWSSB, which completed the work of replacing sanitary pipelines recently, further accentuated the problem.

The existing pipelines on the road belonged to the British era and used to be clogged during rainy season.

Overflowing sewage on MG Road, Midford Road and Richmond Road made the lives of pedestrians and motorists alike miserable.

To fix the drain problem, the BWSSB replaced the existing 150 mm dia pipes with 450 mm dia pipes for nearly 800 mts on the stretch.

Restoration of the road will begin by next week. The Palike has sanctioned Rs 44.50 lakh for the work, said a BBMP officer.
