BMRCL yet to get  HC nod for diversion

Sources said the expert committee, comprising Chief Secretary S V Ranganath and Additional Commissioner of Police (Traffic and Security) Praveen Sood among others, has already submitted its report to the registrar of the High Court. “The registrar of the High Court has fixed the next date for hearing the issue on April 13,” sources said.

BMRCL has meanwhile completed the construction of the alternate diversion road on the Vidhana Soudha side of Dr B R Ambedkar Veedhi. These roads are meant to allow movement of vehicular traffic, once BMRCL commences construction of the underground (UG) tunnels and stations in front of Vidhana Soudha.

Sources added that the Court’s approval is awaited to begin construction of the road on the High Court side.

“Once this is through, we are ready to begin preparatory construction work for the UG stations. Barricading work may begin in May. However, the tunnel boring machines will take some more time to arrive from Hitachi, Japan. This is likely to take 10 months,” the sources said and added work will then commence in full swing on UG-2 corridor (Chinnaswamy Cricket Stadium to Magadi Road Ramp excluding Majestic Station).
