As we have talked a lot about public transport as well as pedestrian friendly infrastructure, many of Prajagalu's must be aware of the fact that thousands of people cross the road in front of EGL campus/DELL office on Inner Ring Road, Domlur. Still there is no safe way and no right of way for the pedestrians. We advocate for use of public transport but think of people coming by buses and putting their life in danger and extreme risk while crossing the road in front of EGL campus. Vehicles coming at good speeds (with no fault of theirs) can also be victims of the same. I have discussed the same with Mr. Sood about possiblity of the skywalk or footover bridge on this place, and he told that BTP has advised/referred to BBMP long back about the need of foot-over bridge over here but after that nothing has happened so far and everyday a lot of people are just crossing the roads believing their fate.
Mr. Sood has sent a letter to me, which I attached here as well, it has some details about the foot-over bridge permission, reference etc.
Since, its written in kannada and I don't know how to read, I need some help here. I tried to get help from a few friends, but since its too formal and pure kannada that even they couldn't help me much.
(1) Please help me with the content
(2) How can I approach BBMP (or the concerned authority) to get this work done?
(3) Do I need to file RTI to find out why its getting delayed (I can ask question about the status, start and completetion date etc)
Or, any other suggestion to make this foot-over bridge reality soon, please come-up with the practical suggestion.
