Even after high court charging at BBMP for failing to restore roads and to make the roads motorists friendly, some of the city roads are still in bad shape with potholes.
Potholes in parts of East Bengaluru are covered with jelly stones and left unattended for days now.
Amidst this, the BBMP chief commissioner directed officials to expedite the road restoration, asphalting and pothole filling works at Yelahanka zone.
Speaking after inspecting the road restoration works at Ananthapura, AMS layout limits in Yelahanka constituency Mr Gupta says that roads must be in motorable condition. He further, directed officials concerned to complete the asphalt works in major roads and also the restoration work of village roads within the set deadline.
Wherever, BWSSB has finished work on laying of drinking water pipes, those roads must be restored on priority, he suggested.
Residents and road users must not be inconvenienced due to the apathy of BBMP officials, he directed.
Executive Engineer Sudhakar Reddy, explaining about the works to the Chief Commissioner, said that, among the 110 villages, 8 villages (Ananthapura, Chikkabettahalli, Doddabettahalli, Kenchenahalli, Harohalli, Nagenahalli, Vaderapura, Govindapura) are coming under the Yelahanka constituency. The road restoration is being taken in all those villages except Vaderapura and Govindapura.
“The BWSSB has dug up 151 kms of road to take up the works related to drinking water and drainage. Of that 151 kms, the BBMP, has restored 60 kms of road. The pending 91 kms of road will be restored within the scheduled time duration”, the Executive Engineer assured Mr. Gupta.
Zonal Joint Commissioner Poornima, Zonal Chief Engineer Ranganath and other concerned officials were present on the occasion.
