Sanjeev brought out a very valid point on how access to ITPL/whitefield is going to get affected in the next coming years because of the metro construction there.
It is beyond doubt that we need the metro going there and soon..it should have happened years ago as part of phase I itself..but it will be happening now..
However we need to plan on a war footing on the alternate traffic movement planning when the construction is on. The autorities from differrent agencies (BMRCL/ BTP/ BBMP/BDA/KPTCL) need to come together to plan the traffic routing.
Even Indian Railways can play a big role in this..but considering their high handedness I am not sure how this will work!
But most of responsibility will lie on BMRCL which has to:
- Use all the learnings from other reaches for faster implementation
- Pre-plan the approach and track it very closely to completion
- Co-ordinate with all the other departments (BTP/BBMP/BDA/KPTCL)
Its not an impossible task but planning and implementaion at a detailed level can really get this happening fast!
