Yes, they have spent 2,500 crores on roads in the past three years and they want more!
Roads in the Silicon City of India may not show it, but the BBMP says it spent a humongous Rs 2,500 crore on them over the three years. Of the 923 kilometres of arterial roads and 1,017 kilometres of sub-arterial roads, it is learnt from BBMP officials that most projects of asphalting and maintenance of these roads have been “spilt over” to the current financial year of 2011-12. With incessant rain, increased population and booming infrastructure activity, the streets of Bangalore have turned into scenes from a war-torn region.
So going simply by the numbers, there are roughly 2000 Kms of roads in Bangalore under BBMP jurisdiction..and was comparing the cost of laying roads with white topping which came up some time ago..it costs less than 1 crore for 1 Kms of road to be laid with white topping..more here
That means BBMP could have easily laid durable roads with white topping all over bangalore with the kind of money spent in the last 3 years!!
This is the worst scandal where information was released by BBMP themselves..its like shooting ones own leg..that too with a cannon!
