Metro work begins at Basavanagudi and Jayanagar
It was MG Road area that saw all the action till now. BMRCL has now started some work on RV road between teacher’s college junction and Rajalaxmi Kalyana Mantapa. They have just about begun some digging work, and have put up some small barricades here and there near the medians through this stretch. From what I saw, it looks like they will be doing all the digging and construction work near the median. That means Laxman Rau Park – the green stretch on either side of the road between South End Circle and Rajalaxmi Kalyana Mantapa – might escape the axe. This is one of the most beautiful roads you can see in Bangalore and it would be nice to see it remain that way.
I did not manage to get any photos, but will carry the camera next time I go that way. And don’t be surprised if Ravi manages to beat me in getting the pics!
