2 Ward level issues

2.1 Lakes / Water / Sewerage

  • Bellandur Lake Implement the Expert Committee report for Bellandur lake and all 46 upstream lakes that feed Bellandur lake. Top items include: Construction of Wetlands: 1.7 hectares for 1 MLD of untreated sewage at entry point, desilting using wet-dredging method, construction of STP to treat raw sewage before it enters lake.
  • Lake violations Strict action against buffer zone violations, encroachment and sewage let into chain of lakes (From Harlur – Kasavanahalli- Kaikondrahalli-Soul kere and Ambalipura-Iblur). Stop rejuvenated lakes like Kaikondrahalli lake from deteriorating. Clear rajakaluve encroachments within 3 months. Fence buffer zones on all rajakaluves connecting the above lakes.
  • Water supply pipelines Provide pipelines for all apartments by 2018 since many have paid BWSSB charges. Government to ensure that 100% of the water need is met through Cauvery Water OR other schemes, and eliminate unregulated private water tanker supply.
  • UGD Connection Underground drainage for all non-apartment households / small apartments without STP.
  • Stormwater Drains Functional, covered storm water drainages along every major road and connected to rajakaluves.
  • Sewage Treatment Sewage treatment infrastructure of sufficient need – through STPs at lake inlets, decentralised STPs and alternate technology STPs.
  • Invest in atleast 3000 sqft of miyawaki lungspace every 2sqkm of area and add 750 recharge wells on priority.

2.2 Solid Waste Management

  • Garbage microplan is still not operational, fix the same
  • Garbage Vehicles Additional primary (auto-tippers) and secondary (compactors) vehicles for Organic Waste and Sanitary Waste collection as per latest number of non-bulk households. Additional vehicles for Dry Waste as per latest number of non-bulk households.
  • DWCC Completion of Dry Waste Collection Center at Doddakannelli – compound wall, electricity, water. Another new DWCC required since our ward requires two.

2.3 Civic, Roads and transport

  • Last mile connectivity large parts of Bellandur are not connected by BMTC. Introduce new routes with convenient and frequent services.
  • Number of AEE and AE are not enough given ward size of Bellandur. We need minimal of 3.
  • Public Space Identify and develop public spaces in the constituency – for children’s play areas/parks, public amenities like Bangalore One/Indira canteens.  Locations: Doddakannelli land, Land strip adjacent to fire station upto Purva Sunshine, Large tracts of land adjacent to RMZ Ecospace, BBMP land at Ibblur Junction
  • Scientific design / road widening
    • Sarjapur Road widening: Immediate and urgent completion of Central Carriageway with necessary land acquisition. Wide Tendersure-type footpaths before other roadworks start – from Ibbalur to Carmelaram on both sides.
    • Junction design and upgrade, widening and whitetopping at all junctions including: Haralur Road, Junnasandra, Kaikondrahalli, Doddakanelli and Carmelaram.
    • Widening of the Wind Tunnel Road and a Police Checkpost as the nearest checkpost is 6 kms away.
    • Development of 5 arterial roads – Bellandur through Huskur to ecity, ORR -doddakannelli-Carmelaram to Gunjur, Kaikondrahalli to Hosur road, Ibblur Junction to Yemalur and Bellandur to Yemalur.
  • Metro Need this as long term solution. Focus on KRPuram-Silk Board Metro completion. Immediate fund allocation via loan needed rather than wait for ‘Innovative Funding’. Metro to Sarjapur Road and ORR is critical. Even phase 3 project shd be expedited.
  • Suburban Rail Fund additional Suburban Rail routes and trains through Carmelaram (ensure the central fund of 50% allocation does not go waste). Development of Carmelaram station into full fledged station with regular stops for trains + suburban, pedestrian access points, parking lot, wait and transit infrastructure, ramps, skywalk and foot-over bridge between platforms, flyover at the rail crossing for motorists.
  • Bus Better connectivity through BMTC buses (minibuses) to interior roads via the proposed new arterial roads. Improve routes and frequencies. Every resident should have a bus stop within 300m from her house. Detailed demands shared with BMTC–including Chakra mini-bus routes between all the Bellandur Tech Parks from Carmelaram, Kasavanhalli, Haralur, Ibblur, Ecospace (RMZ Ecospace back gate), Bellandur-Doddakanelli road, Carmelaram. Need a 5-acre bus stand in Bellandur.
  • Parking issues Enforce parking rules to avoid unauthorized and haphazard  parking by cars and cabs. All commercial establishment should provide self parking on all major District Roads and State Highways.Close all commercial in residential area. Close all commercial without parking provisions in violation of building plan approval
  • Pedestrian infrastructure Follow IRC and DULT norms, in terms of skywalks (mandatory on signal-free corridors), footpaths, HRPCs, pelican crossings, median refuge islands, clear pathways, street light, ramps, etc.  Skywalks to be built by BBMP, not on PPP model, for pedestrian safety, not advertising revenue. There are six skywalks planned in the entire Assembly constituency. However, only one has been implemented.
    • PWD roads on Chikkanayakanahalli,Kodathi, Gattahalli, Choodasandra to enable grid based connect is important and they haven’t been fixed for years now
