BANGALORE: Crossing Kempegowda Road, one of the busiest roads in the city, is easy now. Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) has installed lift facility at the skywalk which has been built across the road.

Mayor Sharadamma, on her last day as Mayor on Wednesday, inaugurated this facility. The lift has been installed to help elders, physically challenged and others who are unable to climb the stairway.

According to a BBMP official,  the lift has a capacity of 1000 kg (13 persons). There will be a lift operator present in the lift all through the day to ensure the safety of the passengers. A generator will provide backup during power cuts.  

First Glitch

Due to technical snags, the lift was not in operation for a short duration after the inauguration. It questioned the safety of the lift, though it did not create much confusion as there was no urgent need for the lift.
