Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) officials have been told to maintain Road History Registry to avoid duplication of works.

The BBMP recently completed Geographical Information System (GIS) mapping of Bangalore roads, which revealed there are around 93,000 roads. Each road has been given a unique identity number. With this, duplication of works can be avoided.

The BBMP said that earlier, Yediyur ward councillor N R Ramesh had written a letter to the commissioner urging him to direct the officials concerned to maintain a Road History Registry System. He stated that the Palike’s financial status is bad, there is a need to avoid duplication of works and hence the need to maintain the road history.

Following Ramesh’s letter, as per the commissioner’s instruction, BBMP Engineer-in-Chief Rangaraju has directed Chief Engineers of all eight zones, Chief Engineer (Major roads) and Chief Engineer (Town Planning) to maintain road history. He directed the officials to verify the road history registry before approving works .
