BANGALORE: The BBMP will fix the flooding problem at Ananda Rao Circle at a cost of `1.25 crore.

Assistant executive engineer of Gandhinagar sub-division Uday Kumar told Express that the problem existed in the area since three decades due to lack of a storm water drain on Sudebar Chatram Road and choking of side drains in V V Giri Colony, Jayachamarajendra Wadiyar Nagar and Nehru Nagar. He said the BBMP Commissioner has asked to complete the project in four months.

“The new storm water drain lines will run from Subedar Chatram  Road to KPTCL office to the police housing quarters and cover a crucial half kilometre stretch. Pipes measuring 1,200 mm to 1,500 mm diameter will be put in this stretch. The water will be diverted to the major storm water drain near Platform Road,” he said.

Assistant engineer of BBMP Prabhu said the officials were asked to prepare a survey map and send it to the chief engineer of the West Zone before getting a final nod from Commissioner M Lakshminarayana. He said the project will also include taking up works from SC Road to Krishna Flour Mill where a storm water drain exists and from  SC Road to Jakkarayan Kere storm water drain.
