So its a tale of two roads where tar is being relaid in our city now..
- Double road/KH road which has a new coat of tar
- Mysore road flyover where the road is being relaid
KH road work started last week and a nice thick coat of tar is already laid. However the Mysore road flover work started 2 weeks ago and is not half done yet!
So which is better? On the face value, the KH road seems to worked upon well..but is it really so?
2 inches of tar today and 2 inches in the next two years and the road will be in the same level as the footpath! The utility manholes like that of sewage will go under!
Instead on the mysore road flyover they are doing 'asphalt milling' as preparation to laying the road. This means that about 2.5 inch thickness of road is being scrapped off and being prepared to relay the road.
Sure it takes a little longer than the usual asphalting job..but its the most desirable and scientific way to do it!
Why doesnt BBMP do this asphalt milling on all roads? Why do they do it so dumb?
