Half of the potholes filled: mayor

As the deadline for filling up of potholes is fast approaching, Mayor R Sampath Raj said that around 50% of the potholes have been filled.

“Around 8,000 of the 16,000-odd potholes have been filled,” said Sampath Raj.

Chief Minister Siddaramaiah had set a deadline of 15 days to Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) Commissioner N Manjunath Prasad and Sampath Raj to fill potholes in the city. Some statistics also said there were 30,000 potholes in the city.

After facing flak from motorists and residents about the bad roads riddled with killer potholes, the BBMP has for the first time put up names of contractors on its website. “We have also posted the history of the condition of roads on our website which shows which contractor was in charge during which period,” said BBMP Commissioner N Manjunath Prasad.

Apart from this, the website has also been updated with an image gallery of all roads where potholes have been filled.

Bengaluru Development and Town Planning Minister KJ George along with Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike commissioner N Manjunath Prasad along with Mayor R Sampath Raj and chief engineers are going for an inspection of pothole work at 2 am on Friday early morning.
