The long pending request of Jayanagar residents to remove transformers on footpaths has materialised. BESCOM is converting multi-pole transformers here to single pole transformers. (Single pole transformers occupy lesser space on footpaths.)


Work started on the transformer on the busy 7th Main road, 36th Cross in Jayanagar 4th block, on February 13th. The old transformer used to obstruct traffic on the road, and the footpath was unusable.

Persuation by Jayanagar MLA B N Vijaya Kumar and the team work by BESCOM under the leadership of its Managing Director P Manivannan has resulted in speedy implementation.

On behalf of Jayanagar residents, I thank Manivannan and his staff for their efforts. We hope the work would be completed as per schedule. Since summer is fast approaching, we request BESCOM to have interactions with citizens to conserve energy.
