There was a report in the Hindu today that a book on guidelines for construction and maintenance of city roads was released yesterday. The author is a retired chief engineer of the PWD, Sri K. N. Shivashankara Rao. This will be an excellent book to get a copy of and review. Is geometrical design covered? Are pedestrian facilities covered? How about utilities?
Wonder if Suhas has access to a copy. It would be good to work with Sri Shivashankara to release a second edition and run a drive to make it the mandatory standard for all road works within Bangalore
Oh, and here is the link.
