BANGALORE: T h e s p e c i a l i t y o f Kavalbyrasandra is that many of its roads are narrow and do not qualify for the two-way traffic.
Many roads, including Karnataka Housing Board Road, Dinnur Main Road up to Dr B R Ambedkar Medical College, need to be widened immediately to avoid inconvenience for the motorists, in the near future.
The residents said the road’s width is less than 20 ft and not useful for the two-way traffic.
They say that traffic jams have become a daily scenerio on this road.
They also informs that three years ago, the Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) had planned to widen the road up to 60 ft but no actions have been taken till date.
Unscientific road humps at various localities is an another nusinace here.
The traffic police and the BBMP authorities failed to mark the humps with white paint to benefit the motorists.
“The humps have become a hurdle for motorists in this area.
I got my leg fractured when I fell off from my scooter while negotiating with an unscientific hump.
I request the BBMP authorities and traffic police to do the needful,’’ said M F Ingalgi, a resident of Rankanagar.
The BBMP had allocated `4 crore to take up development works last year.
Works worth of `2 crore were only completed and the remaining `2 crore are yet to be completed.
More than 150 street lights were provided at various areas.
The BBMP had spent around `1.30 crore to develop box drains.
“We are very happy to know that the authorities had taken up construction of 40 lakh litre ground level reservoir at Karnataka Housing Board Colony.
We expect a solution for water woes after completion of the ground level reservoir.
We are happy with the proactive attitude of Corporator Gowramma,’’ said Vaziruddin M, president, Rankanagar and Neighbourhood Residents’ Welfare Association.
There is nothing to revel about the facilities at the Kavalbyrasandra Bus Stand.
It is situated at a congested place and needs the immediate attention of authorities concerned.
Heaps of garbage is another problem at various localities.
There are only 60 civil workers instead of 120.
As of now, there are only four three-wheelers and one compact vehicle to dispose off garbage as against the requirement of 15 threewheelers and four compact vehicles.
The ward needs more money for development works.
“I hope the BBMP allots the required funds to take up development works in the ward,’’ said Y R Gowramma, Corporator.
Areas such as Ganesh Block, Sultanpalya, Atmananda Colony, Rankanagar, Housing Colony are important localities of the Ward
