Basavangudi – White topping road is creating problems for the residents.
Basavangudi – white topping has become a major cause of worries to the residents. Some of the elderly people are now confined to their houses due to the white topping.
The road after the topping has become too high. Nobody knows when the project will be completed. Some residents are of the opinion that the stretch near Madhavarao circle in Basavangudi was in good condition before the white topping.
Problems at Basavangudi due to white topping:
The problems have multiplied recently at Basavangudi due to the white topping. The residents are unable to take out their vehicles. The height of the roads has been increased. Basavangudi is one of the city’s best-planned area.
Motorists, residents complain that after white topping, they are facing more problems than what it was before. It has become a nightmare to motorists due to the mess created by BBMP.
Due to the increased height of the roads in Basavangudi, it is causing flooding. Whenever it rains the water along with garbage enters the houses. After the white topping done, the BBMP has forgotten to remove the construction debris.
Some of the roads at Basavangudi has turned into one-way after white-topping. This has contributed to a reduction in the business for the traders.
Woes of the residents:
Traffic jam has become a major problem. Sometimes parking a car is a big problem. The wheel gets stuck between the road and the footpath. For two-wheelers, they can easily slip and fall. No warning signs are placed anywhere to indicate where the white topping road is being laid in some areas.
Slabs, Ducts – Concrete
The Basavangudi – white topping is taking place without removing the existing road. This method of topping is increasing the height of the road but the footpath remains at the same height.
This increase in the height is changing the geometric design of the road. This is also disturbing the drains which are on a lower level.
While white topping the roads provision for ducts is to be provided. If any of the utility providers have to conduct their maintenance work in Basavangudi, they break and dig the concrete. Again the problem starts. When bituminous black is put on top of the white topping the roads become slippery. This will compromise the safety of the motorists.
