BANGALORE: Adugodi signal is just a few yards away from the posh Forum Mall in Koramangala, but this does not make any difference to the innumerable civic woes surrounding the area.

From deteriorating roads to haphazard footpaths, the issues are endless.

When City Express spoke to a few residents and commuters, there were fuming reactions. Farzana Rahman, a BPO employee and a resident said, "There is no way one can walk on the footpaths here. At times, it becomes life-threatening as the vehicular movement on this road is on a rise throughout the day and we are left with no option but to walk on the main road."

Voicing a similar opinion, Piyush said, "The roads were dug up by some authority to lay the pipes. But, unfortunately it been more than six months, but the officials have readily left the road without restoring it back to normalcy. Water often gets stagnated and becomes a breeding place for mosquitoes and harmful viruses."             He further added, "From the signal, if one takes the lane, one will notice that garbage is accumulated right in front of a school and nobody has bothered to take any action."

"I take this route on a regular basis and this road has been filled with potholes since eternity and has been left unattended," said Vikas Bakshi, a IT Professional.

When City Express took up the matter with the local corporator, S N Murugesh Modaliyaar, he said, "Due to the road widening roads, the road was messed up and this has deteriorated the condition of the road and created potholes. I have been taking up the issue for the past six months before the Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) council, but no action has been

initiated yet."
