The below picture is of the road works which have started this week on MG road. As can be seen,the exisiting concrete blocks have been removed an neatly piled up on the road..this will most probably be recycled on the same footpath eventually in the coming days.
The same road was done up just before the GIM which happened last month.
- What was the great hurry that this works had to be taken up within such a short time?
- Did the foot path go so bad that it needed rework so fast?
- There is TenderSURE road project approved on this road and is supposed to start soon..why this current rework being taken up before that?
There are various such questions which crop up. Probably an RTI will provide us information on the money being spent on this project as well as the one done few weeks earlier for the GIM.
BBMp tried unsuccessfully to address this 'unwanted' tender contracts issue by bringing an internet site having list of all the works (road history) few months ago.. http://126.96.36.199:8080/BBMPCitizen/#/MainPage.xaml
However this site does not have much records at all.
Such unwanted road 'projects' are routinely undertaken accorss the city just with one intention. And this is very visible.
Wish someone can put a stop to this criminal drain of resources!
