Four skywalks, to enable pedestrians to cross arterials roads in Shanthinagar, planned on ‘design build operate transfer' (DBOT) basis by the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP).
During an inspection of the area, BBMP Commissioner Siddaiah directed the Chief Engineer to make a proposal for four skywalks and place it before the next council meeting. The directions follow complaints from pedestrians regarding the unsafe arterial roads. He also directed the officials to hasten the process of land acquisition for Hosur road widening, which has been halted for want of land. Officials were also instructed to look into the issue of distributing khata to slum-dwellers, use of public open space for rainwater harvesting, improvement of dhobi ghat and prevention of inundation of low-lying areas.
