BENGALURU: BWSSB will adopt three specific steps to ensure potholes caused by the agency would have a permanent solution, said BWSSB Chairman T M Vijay Bhaskar.
He told Express that potholes were earlier filled with mud from the same spot which only proved to a temporary solution.
“In future, we will use quarry dust instead of mud to fill up any pothole caused by BWSSB when we dig roads to attend to water leakages,” Bhaskar said. “A week later, wet mix will be used as a top layer and a fortnight later, asphalting of the road will be done. This will offer a permanent solution,” he said.
Regarding the trenches caused on roads due to laying of pipelines, he said the actual cost of road restoration would be incorporated into the estimate and the charges given to BBMP for laying the road.
‘Case on Husband Not Right’
District Minister Ramalinga Reddy said the police should not have registered a case against the husband of the woman who was killed in a accident recently. The woman died after falling from a two wheeler when her husband tried to avoid a pothole on the ring road. Reddy said he would speak to the Bengaluru City Police Commissioner in this regard.
