Skywalk on Bellary Road

 The Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) has taken up the construction of a skywalk near the Indian Air Force ASC Centre on Gangenahalli Bellary Road.

Mayor Venkatesh Murthy, who laid the foundation stone for the project on Sunday, explained that the skywalk is being built to help pedestrians avoid traffic-heavy Bellary Road. “Due to the increased vehicular movement on Bellary Road, people are unable to cross the road. As a result we decided to build a footbridge.

Even officials at the ASC raised the issue and urged us to take an initiative to ensure people’s safety. The project will be built on Design, Build, Own, Operate and Transfer (DBOOT) basis so as to avert any financial problems,”  he said.

The pedestrian walkway, which will be 3 metres wide, will be laid with anti-skid tiles. BBMP Commissioner Siddaiah accompanied the Mayor.
