Hosapalya Main Road
On this stretch, there are several deep potholes. According to Shashi Kumar, who set up a shop here one-and-a-half years ago, most of the major roads passing through Mangammanapalya were asphalted by the BBMP just a couple of months ago. Despite this, potholes have surfaced.
During the run-up to the BBMP polls, District Minister Ramalinga Reddy personally led the Congress charge in Bommanahalli constituency. It was a rough ride then and remains so now.
A good part of the road is fractured. Ramu, who works at a screen printing unit off Bannerghatta Road, says the stretch is neglected when compared with the roads in the neighbouring BTM Layout. Business development executive R Gokul says, “Driving through Bannerghatta Road, Bilekahalli in particular, feels like driving through a dirt track.”
Devarachikkanahalli Main Road
According to Ravi Kumar, an autorickshaw driver, Bommanahalli Main Road presents few problems but the Devarachikkanahalli Main Road is a dreaded stretch. He says many auto drivers refuse to accept rides there. Another driver concurs, and adds that those who do refuse to go by the meter. They charge at least `50 extra, he says. On this stretch is an open manhole that is now partly covered with a stone slab.
