Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) has come up with a novel concept to ease the commute experience in the city. This new move not only encourages citizen participation but also makes the concerned authorities answerable.
The BBMP is on a drive. Eight roads in Bangalore with a perennial problem of congested traffic have been marked to get a widening. Tenders have been floated and BBMP is set to initiate work very shortly.
A comprehensive BBMP’s survey of the city’s drain network showed glaring encroachments hampering the rajakaluves / Storm Water Drains (SWD’S) which could very well give way and cause massive flooding in many parts of the city.
