Tug of war between BBMP and BWSSB

The pipelining work which started in the month of February is finally complete, but now we are deprived of good roads, why are we at the receiving end? why is the concerned authority not doing anything about the dug up roads?

I have contacted Bangalore Traffic Police on their FB page – Bangalore Traffic Police
They suggested that I contact BBMP control room 080-22660000.

I contacted BBMP control room and got the complaint filed. Later I learnt that the issue does not come under Koramangala ward and I was asked to contact Ejipura ward. The concerned authority explained to me that the pipeline work is complete and that they (BBMP) have written a letter to BWSSB AEE to deposit the estimated amount in their account for the road refurbishment. I contacted BWSSB AEE and found out that they are not clear about anything and there is no proper planning whatsoever.

People who stay in ST bed and Nirguna Mandir Layout are facing grave problems because of the bad stretch. I hope BBMP and BWSSB resolve their internal issues soon and start the reconstruction work.

  1. I do agree with Divya Harave. Wherever BWSSB started their digging work, did not see them completed in time and repaired the roads they dug-up. For instance, its been more than 2 years BWSSB started laying down new pipes for approximately 2 km stretch in EGL campus and Chalaghatta road and still the work is underway in snail pace. Same way one would see the sate of service road near Dombloor flyover, near hosmat hospital.

  2. In all the departments in Bangalore – BWSSB is the worst – it literally stinks. Rest of them (like BESCOM, BTP etc) have shown some initiative to help citizens – and it has worked too. But this one – I have no words for it. BDA closely follows with it’s dubious fly-overs.
