Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) Commissioner M Lakshminarayana on Saturday said the condition of Kalasipalyam bus stand will be improved in a month.

Speaking to reporters, the Commissioner said that for the past three days, at least 150 truck-loads of waste has been cleared from Kalasipalyam bus stand by the BBMP. “As the waste was accumulated for many years, soil has become black in colour. We are putting one layer of fresh soil on that and later, another layer of jelly stone and cement. This will help in making the ground even at the bus stand,” he said.

Lakshminarayana said though they have handed over the Kalasipalyam bus stand to BMTC, the property still belongs to BBMP. There is no drainage system in and around the bus stand area. “As there is no outlet, the area is usually flooded during rains. BBMP, along with BMTC, will take up this issue and improve the condition. The estimated cost to revamp the bus stand is `50 lakh. The work is expected to be completed in another month,” he said.

On Saturday, Lok Adalat Justice H N Nagamohan Das visited Kalasipalyam bus stand and surrounding areas to study the situation.  “He (Justice Nagamohan  Das) saw green waste on K R Market premises. He directed BBMP to install biogas unit to dispose of green waste. We have begun the process of installing a biogas plant and it will take another three months,” the Commissioner said. “People clear waste from the market area twice a day, but  the judge instructed us to clear waste as it comes. We will enforce it,” he said.
