Following the wall collapse at Ganesh Mandir Ward in Padmanabahanagar on Saturday night due to heavy rains, BBMP Commissioner M Lakshminarayana visited the spot on Sunday.
He summoned the Chief Engineer to build 30 feet wall in that spot.
Speaking to Express, he said the collapsed wall, located next to a storm water drain, was along the road. “If it rains heavily, the houses adjacent to it will be flooded and it may also cause problems to pedestrians and vehicle owners,” he said.
“Chief Engineers Ananth Swamy and Sidde Gowda of south zone have been directed to take the work of construction of the 30 feet protection wall and the work will start from Monday,” he added.
He said that his priority in the next 10 days would be to solve issues related to water logging during monsoons.
Corporator of Banashankari Temple Ward A H Basavaraju said BBMP engineers should work on the surroundings of the storm water drain as most of the low laying areas get flooded. Meanwhile, BBMP control room recorded four complaints following a 0.6 mm rain coupled with winds in few parts on Sunday as well. There were reporters of trees falls near Jayamahal and Teachers Colony, water logging in BTM Layout.
