BANGALORE: Following the development works initiated by city civic bodies, traffic has had a major setback in west and south divisions of the city. Adding more to the city’s traffic miseries, the BBMP has started development works between R V Road and Lalbagh Road. Vehicular movement on this stretch will be closed for the next three days. In another instance, BWSSB had undertaken laying pipeline work on Binny Mill road a few days ago. But due to the tardy nature of the department, funds were not released on time and this caused the delay in the work. Vehicles on Binny Mill road are being diverted to Goods Shed Road, adding to the motorists’ woes.

Engineer-In- Chief Venkatraju, BWSSB, said “Development work is in the progress on the bridge over Binny Mill Road. While repairing works were going on, water pipes were damaged. The Board has to spend `25 lakh to replace these damaged pipelines.”

When asked about the time frame for such inconvenience, Additional Commissioner of Police Bangalore Traffic, M A Saleem said,  “For the next 3 days, R V Road and Lalbagh will be one way. Roads have been closed towards  Byappanahalli and Magarath Road.”
