Koramangala 6th Block Residents’ Welfare Association met Transport Minister Ramalinga Reddy and requested his intervention as the residents are facing hardship after the BWSSB has dug up roads to lay new piplines.
The RWA explained to him that the roads have been dug up random all over the 6th Block without any logic. Soil and rubble are left on the roads / footpaths causing traffic jams and inconvenience to pedestrians; While cutting the road with mechanical diggers (JCB) old sewage connection, water connection, electric connection, and telephone connection have been damaged.
Also after laying the sewage pipes and filling the trenches/pits with loose soil no compaction has been done and no water has been sprayed which has resulted in creating dust clouds.
Besides that during the recent rains, the soil level sank resulting the vehicles getting struck in the trenches and mud.
Apart from this no road roller has been used and wet mix not done till today.
Another main problem is that thare is no clarity on who will connect the houses to the new sewage pipelines and who will bear the costs. Generally the residents were kept dark about laying of new sewage pipes. Irresponsible road cutting leading to several blocked lanes for days has increased the hardship for residents.
Hearing the problems faced by the residents, the Minister assured to sort out all the problems.
