Action plan sought
Followed by the meeting, Mayor inspected Sirsi Circle flyover on Mysuru Road. He directed engineers concerned to prepare an action plan for widening the flyover and building a link road connecting flyover with Victoria hospital, directly.

Speaking to reporters, the mayor said that ambulances from city and neighbouring states were being stuck in traffic on the flyover leading to delay in providing treatment to patients. Hence, there is a need to build a link road for the benefit of patients, he  added.
