Need no second bus shelter: Banashankari apartment residents tell BBMP

BBMP's plan to put up a second bus shelter before the Temple Meadows Apartment in 27th cross Banashankari 2nd Stage is met with strong opposition from the residents.

"Why a second shelter, when one already exists?" asks residents of the apartment, who have given a memorandum to the area corporator.

 "Since long a bus shelter existed in front of Krishna Grand Hotel and as it affected their business they requested the BBMP officials to shift it from there. We agreed for building of a bus shelter at one end of our apartment compound,"

Sujatha, a resident of the Temple Meadows apartment, said.

She said the shelter is constantly littered with wastes left behind by street vendors and pourakarmikas fail to clear it away. The BBMP did not respond despite repeated complaints.

"Now, they have dug up the footpath to build another (bus shelter). There are many places in the city without a bus shelter. The BBMP wants to build one more here though it is not needed," she added.

Achutha, another resident, said the number of BMTC buses travelling in that stretch was too low to require two bus stops. "The BBMP wants to make money out of advertisements," he said.
