BENGALURU: A comprehensive data management software on city roads will be implemented by BBMP from the next financial year.

The software aims to bring in better coordination between various agencies involved in road management.

Manjunath Raju, former chairman of the BBMP standing committee on taxation and finance, said five agencies including BBMP, BDA, BESCOM, BWSSB and Bengaluru Traffic Police deal with road infrastructure.

 “All these agencies allocate close to 50 per cent of their budget for road infrastructure. But there is no co-ordination between them. With this software, we can avoid duplication of bills and bring in more transparency,” he said.

Ruling party leader in BBMP council N R Ramesh said the software was developed sometime back, but there were some technical glitches.

“Officials are feeding in data on contractors, asphalting dates, costs and other informatio of the last three years. It will take some time and BBMP will implement it from 2015-16,” he said.

There are more than 92,000 roads in the city, with a total length of close to 13,000 km. Of these, 15,000 are major roads. With this software, every citizen can monitor the road where they reside, and the palike needs to implement it said Manjunath.
