Bengaluru, Jan.07: Better Bengaluru, New Satellite towns, and Beyond Bengaluru Development are the plans of the incumbent government, said Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai.
Participating in Bengaluru-2040 Summit organised by a Deccan Herald on Saturday, he underscored the need for two plans, one to build the futuristic Bengaluru and another to set right the old city. This also requires a huge investment. The UGD, Solid Waste Management, Rajakaluve, and road maintenance must improve. The management of traffic included transport, sub-urban trains, roads, and signals.
Traffic system management
The CM said a separate Commissionerate has been created exclusively for traffic system management with which some changes have been brought in. Suitable arrangements are made to improve the signal system, and additional roads and also to prevent traffic density on national highways. Bengaluru has been ahead in the energy sector.
Use of technology for waste management
The CM said technology is used in waste management. The waste collected from one ward is processed there and doing it will save transport, and space and check pollution of the environment. This machinery will be made compulsory for commercial establishments, and all malls, hospitals, markets, and hotels will be asked to install waste management equipment. Steps are initiated to improve UGD and remove of encroachment of Rajakaluve. A sum of Rs 26,000 crore has been provided for the extension of Metro 3rd state works. Work on sub-urban rail has started. The traffic system will improve due to Peripheral Ring Road, Metro, and road widening. Besides, satellite cities are developed in four places.
