Thoroughfare of vehicles

A thoroughfare of vehicles passes through the 15-foot wide 7th Cross of Rajajinagar Block 1 and this is inconveniencing the residents. The road is not built to handle the density of vehicles and it runs through a residential area with three schools around.

Vehicles use the 7th Cross Road to enter Dr Rajkumar Road from Chord Road. They pose a serious threat to the residents, who are unable to move around safely. Worst affected are the aged and the children. On the other hand, the arterial road meant to take the load of vehicles, is barely used.

The issue has been brought to the notice of the authorities concerned, but no action has been taken till now. This needs to be addressed immediately and vehicles should not be allowed to enter the cross road.

Save lake from encroachments

A few years ago, the Kelkere Lake near Ramamurthynagar was a large and beautiful water body. But now, it has shrunk in size because of rampant encroachments by unscrupulous builders. The builders are set to erect multi-storey structures on the lake bed.

Sand is being dumped into the lake on a largescale and it is fast disappearing. In the interest of preserving this once beautiful lake, we request the officials concerned to arrest the on-going activities that are destroying it.

Uncleared garbage on road

Uncleared garbage and unswept roads have been a long-standing grievance of the residents of 11th Main, HAL 2nd Stage, East of 100 Foot Road from the 7th Cross to 80 Foot Road. While pourakarmikas sweep the roads and clear garbage around the park and its surroundings every day, the roads here are ignored.

Many written representations in this regard have been made but to no effect. Will the authorities concerned please look into this and help the residents by assigning pourakarmikas to clear garbage regularly and maintain cleanliness?

Road in pathetic condition

Certain roads in the City are showered with frequent attention while other lesser-known roads are neglected. An example of the latter is Rustam Bagh Main Road in Ward No 113. The whole stretch from its beginning at the Old Airport Road junction is in a deplorable condition and needs immediate attention from the BBMP.

The area corporator had also promised necessary action, but the road continues to be neglected. Though it was asphalted some years ago, the road is unfit for smooth travel. The road has been damaged badly in a number of places and we expect urgent action.
