White-toppingdelayed, admits BBMP

The Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) officials have agreed that the white topping project is progressing at a snail's pace.

The project, which was supposed to be completed within the month of May might be now completed by August or September.

MLA Munirathna, who attended the BBMP council meeting on Monday said that the white-topping work near Guruguntepalya on Tumakuru Road has blocked the national highway.

"Out of the 13-km stretch, only 500 meters has been completed," he said.

Speaking about the delay in implementing the white topping project, BBMP Commissioner N Manjunath Prasad said,"There is a delay and there are a lot of issues that are rising such as traffic and difficulty in finding alternate routes."

"But we have been working day and night towards it," he added.

"The work on the outer ring road, from Hennur Road to KR Puram is going on at a fast pace," said Prasad.
