BBMP officials say that the midnight inspection drive henceforth will be conducted by the Palike Commissioner every week-end.

From Gandhinagar to Basavangudi, it is reported that the Palike Commissioner travelled nearly 60 km for his midnight inspection from 10 pm to 2 am on Sunday morning.

Desilting drive

According to Palike officials the main agenda for the night was to take stock of the desilting drive in the City.

“Most stretches of the route we took had debris piled up on the footpaths and nearby areas of the Storm Water Drains (SWD),” said a BBMP officer.

Siddaiah has reportedly given standing instructions to the local Executive Engineers to clear the debris within 24 hours of desilting the shoulder drains and transporting it to the empty quarry site in M S Palya.

The worst-effected road which was inspected by the BBMP Commissioner was near RBANMS college which had a lot of debris piled up on the sides.

Engineer pulled up

At the ITC flyover, the Commissioner has reportedly pulled up the Executive Engineer for the delay in completing the service roads below the flyover to be built on the  Storm Water Drains.  He has been asked to complete the project in one month.  

Near D’Costa Layout, along Maruthi Seva Nagar stretch, the inspection team which noted massive potholes has directed the Executive Engineer to fill the potholes immediately.

Yet another dengue-related instruction was issued on Sunday early morning to the ward level engineers to clear the tender coconut shells that lay strewn on the streets of Rajajinagar and Mahalakshmi Layout.
