BANGALORE: The hardships faced by thousands who commute between Bangalore North and East on the Outer Ring Road near Hennur junction is not likely to end in the near future. That’s because the Bangalore Development Authority (BDA) is yet to acquire the land required to complete the flyover here.

T Sham Bhat, BDA commissioner, said, “We have now decided to purchase the 30 guntas required to complete the flyover instead of acquiring it in the normal process. The land owners are demanding Rs 8,000 per sq. ft. and we are offering Rs 4,500 per sq. ft.”

Officials in the engineering department of the BDA say the project can be completed within three months if the land is handed over to them.

The BDA awarded the flyover work at a cost of Rs 58.4 crore to Nagarjuna Construction Company. Work began in 2010 with a promise to complete it by the end of 2012. The BDA was supposed to hand over the land to the company. Though more than three years have passed since the work began, the BDA is yet to hand over the land to the company. Therefore, the contractor is unable to complete the project.

K Ramakrishnappa, a motorist who often passes through the junction, said, “The construction has damaged the road near the junction. We have a tough time negotiating the pothole. We regularly encounter traffic jams when we reach here and, I dread coming to this junction.” Santosh, a resident of the area, said, “The frequent traffic jams cause extreme noise pollution.

The traffic passes through the residential areas whenever there is a jam and we are disgusted with it. We want the work to be completed fast and have given many representations in this regard.”

A traffic constable, who mans the traffic at the junction, said, “As the roads are in a very bad condition, a lot of dust is generated here. We stand for nearly 12 hours and inhale a lot of dust and that is a very big health hazard. We pray for the early completion of the work on the flyover”.

Come here, Mr CM

Chief minister Siddaramaiah claimed work on the CNR Rao flyover progressed faster after he inspected it. City Express invites him to more unfinished projects that need his urgent intervention
