Cesspool of a road

The place near our house at 36, Pipeline Road, Raghavendra Colony, Yeshwantpur, is shockingly pathetic. When it rains, the place turns into a cesspool, with water touching the knee. There has been absolutely no help from the government, even after repeatedly taking up the issue with the local MLA.

There is National Public School on the same road and it too hasn’t done anything about the pathetic condition of the road. It is very difficult to travel on such a road.
People here just try to cover the potholes with mud and bricks, but that only increases our woes during the rainy season!

Is the government waiting for some deadly accident to take some course of action?

Check stray dog menace

BBMP officials have failed to provide any respite to residents even after repeated complaints about stray dog menace at 7th Main, 2nd Cross, 3rd Stage, 3rd Block, Basaveshwaranagar. There are too many stray dogs in our neighbourhood, which start barking loudly throughout the night. I had registered this complaint twice on ‘’ and by phone thrice to their complaint call centre number 080-22660000080-22660000.

Unfortunately, till now the menace of stray dogs has not been looked into. I request the authorities concerned through this platform to remove the stray dogs so that citizens live in peace.

Strays and uncleared trash

This is with regard to the menace of stray dogs and uncleared garbage right in front of our house at # 147, 2nd Cross, Nagakali Amman Street, behind ice factory, Bharath Nagar, Amarjyothi Layout, SRK post, Thanisandra. Also, the road which leads to our house is filled with filth. We tried contacting the local corporator and the BBMP personnel. All they did was to give us a deaf hearing. Kindly take immediate action because any further delay will only add misery instead.


Footpath not laid well

The footpath from Spice Garden bus stop to Kundanahalli signal has not been properly laid. It is full of mud, stones, trees and shrubs. On one side is heavy traffic and on the other side an uncovered deep sewage canal. Primary schools, an eye hospital, supermarkets and many shops are located on this stretch of the Marathahalli-Varthur road. The authorities should act before accidents occur.

Buses stop at unscheduled points

I regularly see BMTC buses and maxi cabs stopping at unscheduled locations. To be more specific, Volvo buses stop at every cross road and in front of offices. This causes major traffic jams on busy roads. The buses even stops in the middle of the main road, at ‘T’ cross roads and traffic signals, obstructing vehicular movement. There are many BBMP bus shelters and bus bays where the buses never stop. They stop only at U-turns near traffic signals. You can see buses parked at places where ‘No stopping. Fine Rs 100’ boards are put up, for example, ITPL main gate. I don’t blame the drivers alone. Even passengers want the bus to stop in front of their office / house. If buses stop only at the designated points, traffic jams at signals and cross roads can be reduced considerably.

New roads, poor job

The recently laid roads around the Prof CNR Rao underpass, BEL Circle and HMT Peenya metro station (yet to be completed) have already caved in at many places and didn’t last even six months. There is no inspection and repair process and no accountability. The whole system is flawed. The corrupt contractors are milking the callous BBMP. Will someone stand up or Bengaluru will remain pathetic forever?

Repair footpaths on Old Airport Road

Not long ago, Old Airport Road was the pride of Bengaluru as one of the arteries but not anymore after the opening of the international airport at Devanahalli. The footpaths at many places are broken and uneven and difficult to use by pedestrians, especially senior citizens, children and women.

 At many places, footpaths are at a higher level than the road. It’s quite possible that people trip down and hurt themselves.

The footpaths were shoddily built by the Karnataka Land Army some years ago. No repair works have been taken up by the BBMP ever since. Will the civic agency be kind enough to improve the road and its footpaths and restore the stretch to its original glory and help the harassed citizens have a smooth and comfortable experience?

Asphalt road under flyover

The residents of Venkatarama Layout in Maruthi Sevanagar have to take the route below the Maruthi Sevanagar flyover to reach home. We face problems that have remained unattended despite our efforts to reach the authorities and the local representatives. The road under the flyover is full of potholes and blocked drains. The road should be tarred/repaired, the spots below the flyover, which are being used as garbage dumping yard and roadside vending, should be cleaned. It should also not become a parking lot for movie goers, local shoppers. We request the authorities to help us and make us feel that we are reaching our homes, not hell!

Have one bus stand at market

A central bus station is needed in K R Market. There are five different places where buses stop at the K R Market junction: near Victoria Hospital, Kalasipalya, below flyover, near City Jamia Masjid and the underpass. The buses can stop at one central place which will help commuters.

Footpaths or death traps?

Footpaths in Basaveshwaranagar 3rd Stage 2nd Block have become death traps. Besides, people also litter and urinate behind school buses parked in the area. The matter was taken up with the BBMP and the local corporator, but fell on deaf ears and the situation has improved in the last three years. The officials are requested to solve the problem at the earliest.

Road dug, but not repaired

We are inconvenienced due to digging of the road and blocking the connectivity. This has forced many people to take alternative routes than simpler ones. The result is a complete mess. The authorities concerned have not taken any action for two months now. Officials are requested to immediately look into the issue.

Sewage flowing on road

Tejaswini Nagar has only one approach road from Doddakammanahalli road. It is sad to see the sewage flowing on this stretch as the storm water drain after FCI connectors is completely blocked in front of PIXCEL ONE apartment.

The accumulated sewage is leading to stench and breeds mosquitoes.
Will the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike authorities clean the drain and place pipes to ensure that the sewage does not flow on the road?
