Deputy Chief Minister and Bangalore Development Minister G Parameshwara on Monday said that the BBMP was planning to come up with new advertisement policy to streamline the advertising business in the city.

He was speaking after inaugurating The Manjunath Nagar flyover on West of Chord road. 

"The BBMP has removed illegal flexes and banners in the city based on orders by the Karnataka High Court. But, there is a possibility of advertisers approaching the High Court to support their businesses. So, we will have to think of new advertising policy in the coming days," he said.

He said that BBMP was successful in removing unauthorised optical fibre cables laid up to 8,000 km length of in the city recently.

The inauguration of the flyover is likely to ease the traffic between West of Chord road and Manjunath Nagar.
It marks the completion of the first phase of the three-point project, which was sanctioned under Nagarothana project by the state government and Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) in 2016.
"Though the project was expected to end by July, it was delayed due to rain and assembly election earlier this year increasing the project cost," said Parameshwara.

Mayor R Sampath Raj, Rajajinagar MLA Suresh Kumar, former mayor and Prakash Nagar corporator G Padmavathi and BBMP Commissioner N Manjunath Prasad were present.
