Irregular garbage collection
It has been ten days since the Pourakarmikas came to out road, 16A Cross, Sector-6, HSR Layout, to collect garbage.

When I complained to the engineer concerned (Janardhan), he expressed his helplessness and said this might be the case for a fortnight longer.

When I complained to the BBMP online, they sent a message that we should contact the same engineer Janardhan. The whole road is filled with rotting garbage and its stink. We are in confusion as to whom to complain to. In spite of the BBMP spending big money on roads, garbage and potholes, the problems persist.

Bus service disrupted
Coffee Board Layout is situated in Hebbal, Kempapura, where there are more than 500 houses, various educational institutions, apartments and commercial establishments. But it was a lone BMTC bus, 287G, that operated from here to Kempegowda Bus Station and KR Market. After a while the bus operated between here and Kempegowda Bus Station. Now even that has stopped, as the bus has not come here in the last two days, inconveniencing regular commuters. I request BMTC officials to not disrupt the service and to restore it immediately.

Poorly lit BMTC boards
BMTC bus services are going from bad to worst. Most of the buses do not even have a properly lit board. It has become very difficult for commuters to read the route and destinations in the evenings. Moreover, bus services between Shivajinagar and Basaveshwaranagar or Rajajinagar are pathetic. Commuters waiting at Indian Express, RC College and Shivananda Circle have to think twice before boarding the over crowded buses from Shivajinagar. BMTC officials should look into these issues and increase the number of buses on route No 95.

Road full of potholes
The cross road in front of DLF near Corporation Bank, Hulimavu, is full of potholes. I request City in-charge minister K J George to visit some areas in the City at least once in a month for inspection. While the government collects lakhs of rupees as road tax, it has not been able to ensure good roads, particularly in the IT capital of India.

Yemalur road in bad condition
I travel to my office in Pritech Eco Space from HAL via Yemalur Road every day. A lot of vehicles ply on this road to take a short cut to Bellandur and to avoid the Marathahalli Main Road. This road is the worst that someone can think about. It is like road laid in the middle of potholes, instead of potholes on road. Is there any authority is looking into it? The road is in this poor condition for the past one and half years.

Lay road at Akshyanagar

The residents of 7th Cross in Akshayanagar (ward 192), are facing enormous problem due to lack of proper road. We have been complaining to the BBMP on this issue for the past 18 months but there had been no action. During the recent rains, this stretch of road turned slushy, endangering the lives of motorcyclists and pedestrians.
The authorities concerned are requested to look into the issue and lay a tar road.

Pothole posing danger

The pothole at the narrow curved entrance of Vidyamanya Nagar is posing threat to the lives of motorists. Even pedestrians fear walking past the road due to the poor shape of the road. I request the BBMP fill the pothole swiftly before anymore pothole accidents take place.

Dangerous footpath

The footpath near Wind Tunnel Road junction and on Old Airport Road in front of National Aeronautic Lab (NAL), has become a dangerous stretch for pedestrians. People walking towards Manipal Hospital and HDFC Bank are forced to manoeuvre around a pile of pipes that are dumped on the footpath. Besides, the footpath is in a pathetic condition. The road sees heavy traffic and it is dangerous for people to walk here. It is sad that pedestrians’ safety and convenience are ignored.

Leaking sewage not repaired

I have made at least 50 complaints to all officials of BWSSB to repair a broken sewage chamber in front of my house (491, 16 ‘A’ Cross, Sector-6, HSR Layout). An official replied saying that the complaint is resolved. At least three times he gave such reply.
Is it a new technique of BWSSB in solving the problems? The sewage, which emanates foul smell, has become a breeding ground for mosquitoes.
