The new Bangalore Development Authority (BDA) road between Kothanur and Konanakunte, along with providing better connectivity in the neighbourhood, is tipped to partially address the residents’ flooding woes.

Details

The nine-km radial road starts at J P Nagar 6th Phase 15th Cross Junction and passes through the 7th and 8th phases before culminating at Konanakunte Cross. The road has culverts and storm water drains on both sides.
The new road, with the drains in place, will help in diverting potential rain overflow to the Puttenahalli Lake, according to B N Prasad and Neeraj Kumar Almelkar, President and Organising Secretary, Federation of J P Nagar 7th and 8th Phase Residents Welfare Associations.
After the road was mooted during Dharam Singh’s tenure as chief minister, no contractor had come forward to take up the project because of the rates that were being offered, they said. Later, the residents approached the CM on the issue. The road, measuring between 7.5 metres and 10.5 metres in width, has been completed in 14 months, on a budget of Rs 20.77 crore. It also offers better connectivity among RBI Layout, Kothanur Dinne, Jambusavari Dinne and Kanakapura Road. According to the Federation, some residents and owners of business establishments had volunteered to provide land for the construction of stormwater drains. More than 40 residents associations were involved in pushing the road’s case with the government.


It is also reported that The road was partly funded by Elita Homes which is constructing Elita Promenade on the same road with more than 1500 residential dwellings!!!,
