Bangalore Live News Today: Bangalore In what is seen as a welcome move, the Karnataka Road Development Corporation (KRDCL) has confirmed that the elevated corridor project in Bangalore will not be built on stormwater drains.
A recent survey by a team of citizen activists had reported that pillars of the proposed elevated corridor project might be built on the adjacent drains (rajakaluves) on the BTS Main Road in Shantinagar. The same was observed as part of the social impact assessment survey of the elevated corridor project conducted by the citizen team.
Meanwhile, Namma Metro officials have begun to warn commuters of slippery floors at metro stations in Bengaluru. Posters stuck at various stations read, “Passengers are requested to be cautious while walking in Metro station areas having a smooth surface.” Several complaints of slippery floors were raised to the BMRCL by passengers in the last few months.
