(See this related Post) Mr R.K. Mishra is actively working on solving the issues related to Whitefield and Mahadevepura region. Accordingly a task force has been setup with the help of the local MLA Mr Arvind Limbavali (Hon. Minister for Higher education). Following are the minutes of the 2nd meeting that the task force had recently (7th September).

We are in touch with Mr R K Misra to see how Praja members could help this effort. After all, this entire region with its high concentration of IT industries affects most of the Praja members directly.

There is a follow up meeting this Thursday in Vidhana Soudha. We will confirm if and how many folks can attend this meeting.

Sir, Thanks for your efforts in making mahadevapura a better place to live.We live in Greens Aprtment(150 flats), right next to the alpine eco Apartment.The road condition is pathetic and also there is lack of street lights which makes this place a insecure at nights.It would be good to have the already planned whitefield bypass road(connecting ORR with whitefield road(Near graphit india)...This would also reduce the traffic congestion in the kundanahalli area...Let me know if you need any help from the residents of greens..,we will be happy to help you in your efforts -ganesh

Kadugodi... a good place with bad connectivity!

Respected Sir, Glad to know that there are meetings being conducted and a lot of work is happening for the improvement of basic infrastructure in our part of bangalore! I live in Kadugodi (just behind the Sai Baba Ashram) and have been enduring all the connectivity problems, bad roads and dusty environment for the past 2 years. The Railway Over Bridge is still not complete. And as I see everyday, some little work is happening, but no signs of the work speeding up to completion. The irony is that Whitfield Station is under a super fast renovation and expansion program! Just goes to show the actual prowess of our agencies provided the focus is there. From being a small station 4 months ago, it is having a huge parking lot and upcoming new building now. But still the over Bridge (flyover) is in same condition as in June 2008. One more important thing is that from Hopefarm to Kadugodi (NH 207) there are no street lights at all! At night times, it is impossible and very dangerous to drive - with lorries and buses coming in full high beam lighting, it is perilious. ITPL Road near Tata Elxsi is very very bad! One of my ex colleagues (who used to work in Tata Elxsi) lost his life because of the bad roads - he came under a lorry near the Citibank ATM (near the newly getting constructed A new posh building Hotel). The cause was simple - the roads were utter bad with only potholes and in rainy season (last Oct) he fell prey. Some kind of laws / rules must be there to ensure that when companies construct new things, they should not damage existing roads / drainage systems... I have worked for 9 years in Tata Elxsi, and the roads were always good... but from the last 8 months, the road on the RHS (from ITPL to Hoody) is damaged... the root cause is simple - the drainage is blcoked by the construction dust / material from A new posh building hotel (when it was being constructed) as a result when it rains, the area is flooded! When the accident happened, I saw the hotel constructors immediately repairing the drainage only within their area perimeter.... it is easily escaping the law!!!! Pls. do something to bring good Quality of life in our part of Bangalore also. Thanks & Regards Gopal.S comment guidelines
