Does Sivananda flyover conform to norms, HC sought to know

The Karnataka High Court on Monday asked the BBMP to clarify whether its  plan to construct the steel flyover at Sivananda Circle complies with the Indian Road Congress' guidelines.

A division bench of acting Chief Justice H G Ramesh and Justice P S Dinesh Kumar was hearing a PIL filed by B P Mahesh and 19 citizens residing near Sivananda Circle.

According to the petitioner, it is mandatory to comply with the guidelines of the Indian Road Congress (IRC).

During  the last hearing, the Palike had stated that it was not mandatory to implement the regulations of the IRC, but stated  they have followed most of the specifications.

However, according to Mahesh, the BBMP has not followed the stipulation.

When the bench asked if the design was approved by the sanctioning authority, the BBMP said its technical committee had  okayed  the plan.

To this, the bench said the Palike would have to modify the plan if the design is contrary to the law, and posted the matter to November 28.
