BMTC in Metro Times

Ever since the launch of Metro, especially after East West Purple line was fully implemented, Bengaluru is saying 'Metro, Metro'. BMTC commuters, office bus users and many car drivers have switched over to Metro.  Ridership has already touched 1.8 Lakhs on purple line.

Bangalore Commuter Rail / Suburban Rail : GOK and GOI equally responsibile for not implementing

Commuter Rail

GOK is not serious on suburban rail by looking at last 7-8 yrs progress on suburban rail.  DPR  is pending & No follow ups from GOK with Railway Officials.

footpath works - bbmp's perpetual money spinner

The below picture is of the road works which have started this week on MG road. As can be seen,the exisiting concrete blocks have been removed an neatly piled up on the road..this will most probably be recycled on the same footpath eventually in the coming days.

solving silkboard conundrum

Silkboard junction has been identified as one of the worst traffic prone junctions in the whole of India!!

So what does the govt do to handle it..they come up with an humungous plan to 'de-clutter' the junction with a maze of flyovers..
