Drinking water, underground drainage project cleared

The State Council of Ministers on Monday cleared a proposal to take up a drinking water and underground drainage project in the 110 villages, which were brought under the BBMP limits.

The Bangalore Water Supply and Sewerage Board (BWSSB) will implement the project estimated to cost Rs 5,000 crore.

The government has already cleared a project to get an additional 10 tmc feet of Cauvery water to Bengaluru. The BWSSB has recently commissioned the Cauvery IV phase, II stage project, and supplied drinking water to the newly added areas of the BBMP, excluding the 110 villages.

Chief Minister Siddaramaiah had chaired the Council of Ministers’ meeting. But the government did not brief the media about the decisions taken in the meeting due to the model code of conduct for the zilla and taluk panchayat elections.

Besides, the Council of Ministers approved a proposal to spend Rs 175 crore under the Bangalore Traffic Improvement Project (B-Trac) in the next three years. The Karnataka Urban Infrastructure Development Corporation and the Bengaluru traffic police will jointly implement the project aimed at easing the traffic movement in Bengaluru.
