Metro, not NimBus (BPS) , needed for ORR

The govt along with various organizations like DULT is gearing up for the launch of  NimBus or the Bus Priority System(BPS) planned on the ORR.

But, nobody knew that between the private operators and the schools, there were over 6 times the numbers operated by BMTC.

Bengaluru footpath issues/solution

Pedestrian Infrastructure

Bangalore footpaths are unusable at many places and the result is that pedestrians are forced onto the roads where they run a risk of getting hit by vehicular traffic. Many interesting videos are done to show this problem. A recent one by Malleshwaram Socail  is here below:

Fear and Tender S.U.R.E

Infrastructure

First would like to start with saying that Tender SURE was indeed a ground breaking effort, literally too, in many ways. Uniform Carriage way and few other principles which are new and commendable.

Bellandur - Varthur wetland encroachments

Lakes

The saga of encroachments and land grabbing on Bellandur lake is very painful to say the least. Its a prime example of how a historical waterbody has been turned to waste just because of human greed.

Sanity at Silkboard!

Metro Rail

Now that there are land acquistion and the tendering issues to be resolved to sort the grand silkboard road plan, which BMRCL attempted to implement. Also, the double decker work is still on, starting from the marenahalli end.

There is a need a less ambitious practical solution which can be implemented to completion.

Rail Yatra - Yeshwantpur to Karmelam - August 31 @ 2:30 PM

Commuter Rail

In this game of Ping-Pong between GOK and Railway Ministry, impelmentation of Suburban Rail Project in Bengaluru is almost like winning thousand mutinies. Every inch of progress made so far right from 2010 Round Table Event at CiSTUP is almost like a winning a mutiny and it is almost like a waging war at all times.
