People's problems- Koramangala-Ejipura road full of potholes

The stretch of road in front of the Regional Passport Office and the National Games Village in Koramangala is in a bad shape.

Just a light rainfall turns this pothole-filled road into a bunker of water, inconveniencing pedestrians, motorcyclists and schoolchildren. Will the authorities take note and get the potholes filled?

Dirty toilets in Chinnaswamy Stadium
The toilets in the stadium are in a poor condition. During a recent visit, I found that the washbasins are dirty and the taps dry. Areas in and around the stadium need maintenance in terms of hygiene and cleaning. An ordinary ticket costs Rs 500 per day. It’s high time the KSCA took care of spectators by providing them basic facilities like food and water at subsidised rates, clean toilets, and escalators or lifts for the disabled and senior citizens.

Park becomes dumping ground
The park at 6th Cross in Victoria Layout (Shanthalanagar ward) has been in a deplorable condition for long. It is being used as a garbage dumping ground where dogs and rats feed. It’s been almost a year since we wrote to the local corporator, M B Dwarkanath, and BBMP authorities but nothing has been done yet. Will the authorities concerned spend some park development funds on this recreation ground, especially for the benefit of senior citizens of the locality.

Illegal felling of sandalwood trees
Around two months ago, a full-grown sandalwood tree near site numbers 21 and 23 in Classic Orchards Layout was cut down and carted off. Two days ago, another full-grown sandalwood tree was cut down in the same locality.

Since the locality is well-guarded round the clock, it’s suspected that some guards have colluded with unscrupulous local residents to steal the trees. The authorities must take action.

Expedite work on rail platform
A year ago, the South Western Railway (SWR) awarded the contract for construction of a platform at Krishnadevaraya Halt Station, Hampinagar, Vijayanagar. It’s been six months since the work came to a halt because of disagreements between the SWR and the contractor.

The situation has caused inconvenience to senior citizens and women passengers who have to board and get off trains within a short span of time with children and belongings.
