Greater Bangalore, bigger promises
Read about the BBMP budget? Definitely some big promises in there, though not all of them new – most have been talked about recently (see links below). But the budget puts money on these promises, and that is exciting indeed.
# Elevated Core Inner Ring Road (Details are already out)
# Elevated roads over storm water drains (Could mean 250 km of new roads!)
# That road-tunnel from Minsk Square to Hebbal flyover. The idea is to get people out from CBD to North of city (new Airport?) as quick as possible.
# Skywalks as we told you, 34 of them!
# Comprehensive lake development plan, life for 14 lakes (so more places like Sankey Tank and Hebbal lake?)
# JUNURM project to separate sewage from drains
# Remodelling of pavements on IT-BT roads (so that we have pedestrians on pavements, and vehicles on road, and not other way around)
The list is bigger, with few more items. But all the noise recently has been positive. Let us wait and watch!
