Thejesh had pointed out about youngsters being ignorant to the current state of Bangalore. Well as a small step towards contributing to the infrastructure development in the city, here’s my idea. The first thing that comes to my mind when I think about the degrading infrastructure in Bangalore is the roads. So I would recommend readers to comment to this post about the roads that they think need immediate attention.
Please submit your comments in the following format:
Road Name or some identification,
What are the import locations that it connects,
What is the current state of the road (totally unusable/wearing out each day. Try to picturize the state of the road),
How long has it been that way,
Some statistics about how many vehicles use that road or some pointers to show how important that road is (Please do some survey before you complain)
Also we have to make sure that these complaints reach the authorities concerned at the highest levels. So anybody who has any contacts or ideas for forwarding the complaints, post it as a comment or please mail it to the id Bangalore.firstname.lastname@example.org.
The metrobloggers of New Orleans, Lahore and Karachi had played a vital role during Hurricane Katrina and the earth quake in Pakistan. Hope that the Bangalore metroblog also will also evolve as a platform for people to contribute towards the development of Bangalore.
