Substandardroad work

The stretch between Nanjappa Circle and Bommanahalli arch, Vidyaranyapura was
asphalted recently. But due to the poor workmanship, a good portion of the said stretch is damaged again.

Vehicles, bikes in particular, plying on the pothole-filled road have suffered damages. The authorities concerned should take steps to repair road using quality materials. Krishna Kumar

Ply direct buses to Jalahalli Cross

Many students, industrial workers, dailywage labourers, government employees based at Byadarahalli, Tunganagara, Herohalli, Venkateshwara Layout, Vidyamanya Nagar, Andhrahalli and Kalikanagar and the surrounding areas travel to Jalahalli Cross on a daily basis.

But, due to the lack of public transportation, most of them are forced to take two buses on the stretch. This is tiresome and time-consuming for all. If the BMTC authorities take steps to introduce direct bus service from Byadarahalli to Jalahalli Cross and back, it would help hundreds of commuters in the region. Also, it would help the Corporation rake up a good revenue. R Guruprasad, Vidyamanya Nagara,

Bus service to Venugopalnagar

I am a Class 12 student and a resident of Venugopalnagar. The area has a population of 50,000 plus, but the bus service here is inadequate. I request the BMTC authorities to increase the bus services from Venugolapnagar to other areas.

Restore road on JP Nagar 4th Main

The BWSSB workers had dug up a stretch of 4th Main Road between 3rd Cross and 8th Cross in JP Nagar 3rd Phase, four months back, to replace old and worn-out sanitary pipes with new ones.

The water board workers, however, didn’t bother to restore the road. Trenches dug up for the pipeline laying work were closed in a haphazard manner. Rain in the recent past has left the road in a bad shape. The stretch poses danger to children, elderly persons, bikers and motorists. The authorities concerned should take steps to restore the road and make life easy for the commuters and pedestrians in this area.

Garbage posing health hazards

Garbage collection at 2nd Main Bhuvaneshwari Nagar and Sultanpalya is irregular as a result the residents in the area dump garbage on the roads. Mounds of unattended garbage in the area are posing health hazards to the residents in the vicinity. Apart from uncleared garbage, the stretch between Veeranapalya Railway Gate and Ring Road Signal is in a pathetic condition. The authorities have not bothered to repair the pothole-riddled stretch. I urge the authorities to address garbage pr­­o­blem and repair the road for the benefit of the people.

Open SWD poses health hazard

The stormwater drain on Bannerghatta Road between Hulimavu signal and Bharath Petroleum bunk (ward number 193, Arakere) is totally blocked. The drainage water overflowing from the SWD has become a health hazard. Hospitals, eateries, schools and houses are located near this drain.
The authorities concerned are requested to take necessary action before monsoon begins.

The SWD on Bannerghatta Road has not been covered.

Road not restored in Amruth Nagar

The only lane leading to my apartment in Amruth Nagar has remained a semblance of road. Drainage work on this stretch began on April 29 without any concern for the people who live there. A lane that already was not tarred, but full of stones, is dug up for drainage work. The situation turns worse whenever it rains.

The lane is filled with apartments and I don't even want to think what we'll do in case of a fire or any other kind of emergency.

Forget the added expenditure we all are having to bear because of this mess. Forget the days we have taken off from work because there was a gigantic hole in front of our gate preventing us from stepping out.

 Forget the fact that we couldn't go out to get groceries for simple daily requirements.

Vacant plot turns into dumping yard

A vacant plot adjacent to the Titan Eye Showroom on Kammanahalli Main Road is being used by pourakamikas as a dump yard. Add to it, the pourakarmikas set fire to the garbage dumped at the vacant site. Smoke from the burning garbage is polluting the environment.

Because of which many people in the area are suffering from respiratory disorders. The authorities concerned should take necessary action to address the problem.

Extend bus to Mekhri Circle

A lot of commuters travel to Doddaballapur, Chikkaballapur, Devanahalli, Yelahanka. It would help the commuters travelling to aforementioned places, if the BMTC authorities extend the 500D route bus to Mekhri Circle on one side and Jayanagar 4th block on the other side.

All the buses terminating at Silk Board should be extended to places like Jayanagar 4th Block, Bannerghatta, NR Colony via Jayanagar for the benefit of a lot of regular commuters.
