KGF, B'pet may become satellite towns of B'lore

The possibility of developing Kolar Gold Fields and Bangarpet as satellite towns of Bangalore is under consideration, according to Ravindra, advisor to the chief minister.

Speaking to reporters during his visit to the City on Monday, Ravindra said Bangalore was becoming a congested city and hence it had become necessary to develop satellite towns.

He said the Bangalore-Chennai corridor, which passes through KGF and Bangarpet provide ample growth opportunities for both the cities.

“The corridor spurs industrial development and we need to provide infrastructural support to the two cities. The government has decided to take up a comprehensive study in this regard.”

KGF has remained very backward and a plan of action to develop it is being deliberated upon. Mobilisation of the resources required for the task, efficient utilisation of the land belonging to the gold mines, water source etc, are being weighed upon.

The officials of the Karnataka Urban Water Supply and Drainage Board had been asked to prepare a comprehensive report, he said.
