Now time for Koramangala Rising

sony1City Kemp News
Following in the steps of the Whitefield Rising and Sarjapur ORR Rising protests, residents of various blocks in Koramangala are contemplating a street protest to draw the attention of the authorities to the traffic issues and road problems in the area.
Residents have several grouses including the incessant flow of traffic through residential roads in the area, the bad state of roads in the locality and the hold ups in taking up key infrastructure projects.
Ever since Hosur Road and Sarjapur Road became one way, the internal roads of Koramangala have faced increased pressure due to the reluctance of traffic police to block through traffic flow along the residential roads of the area. Repeated attempts by the citizens to engage senior traffic police personnel in a search for solutions have led nowhere.
The state of roads in Koramangala is deplorable and there are many potholes and badly surfaced areas which are hindering smooth flow of traffic.
Government has also not given priority to key infrastructure works already planned. For instance, the Ejipura to Kendriya Sadan elevated flyover has not seen the light of day in spite of several months having elapsed since the project was tendered. The long awaited road from Ejipura to Agara has been stuck due to the lack of coordination between the Central and State Governments. The Hosur Road stretch from Silk Board to Forum is perhaps the worst affected and is crying out for an infrastructural solution which also does not appear to be close to taking off.
The protest will seek to focus attention on all these issues.
