BANGALORE: Haphazard parking on various roads of Kacharakanahalli Ward have been troubling many residents. They said that the traffic police have not taken any measures to prevent parking on both the sides of the roads.
For instance, the road parallel to the Outer Ring Road, is choked with vehicles parked haphazardly. The traffic is being diverted to this road during the peak hours, thus causing a lot of inconvenience to the residents. “The parking of vehicles on either sides of the road has become a nuisance for us. The over-speeding vehicles cause a lot of noise pollution. We have to shut windows and doors to protect our eardrums from cacophony. I am eagerly waiting for traffic police to regulate vehicular movement on this road,’’ said Zhazala, a resident of HRBR Second Block.
Areas such as Kariyanna Palya, St Thomas Town, Kammanahalli, Indra Nagar, Nagadevi Industrial Area, Sena Vihar, Sait Palya, HBR 2nd - 3rd Layouts, Keshav Nagar, Jalavayu vihar, Kalyana Nagar are the important localities of Kacharakanahalli Ward.
A few residents complain about students of nearby educational institute wandering on the cross roads. “There are a few students who have no decency. They indulge in caressing on these roads. A few students also indulge in wheeling. There was an accident six months ago and we admitted a girl to the hospital who sustained injuries due the students attempting wheeling,’’ said a resident on condition of anonymity. Some residents have complained about the irregular water supply. They said that Bangalore Water Supply and Sewerage Board (BWSSB) supplies water thrice a week. “There were occasions where we got water once in 15 days,’’ said another resident.There is nothing to revel about the condition of drains at few areas. The drains at 3rd ‘A’ Main Road of Kacharakanahalli are full of weeds and debris. “Three years ago, BBMP workers had removed the silt from the drains and kept it on the road. They are yet to clear it,’’ said M Chandrappa, a resident.
Meanwhile, Padmanabh Reddy, Corporator, said that he has been taking measures to keep the ward free from garbage and ensure water supply on regular basis. Reddy said the BBMP had sanctioned Rs 5 crore for development works last year. “The work to put up a booster pump in order to ensure water supply is in progress. I am hopeful of solving water problems in 45 days,’’ said the corporator.
