More facilities for Nagarbhavi Layout soon

BDA has finalised tender for providing power supply to two blocks

Special Correspondent

BANGALORE: The immediate priorities for Nagarbhavi Layout, one of the older localities developed by the Bangalore Development Authority (BDA), are the creation of facilities such as power and water supply, underground drainage and road asphalting, the BDA said here on Monday, reacting to a report published on Sunday.

"All but two of the 14 blocks in Nagarbhavi 2nd Stage have been provided water supply and underground drainage. Works were delayed in the 13th and 14th blocks because they are on a ridge, and some areas were under litigation. We are now taking action along with the BWSSB (Bangalore Water Supply and Sewerage Board) to provide water supply by providing a feeder main from 10th Block,'' BDA officials said.

For providing proper electricity connections to these two blocks, the BDA said a Rs. 1.03-crore tender has been finalised, and work order will be issued in two days.

Eshwar Electrical Company is the agency selected to execute the work within three months, and by September 2005 all electrical works are expected to be completed, the BDA said.

Civil works, including asphalting of roads in 13th Block, have been completed and the roads handed over to the city municipal council for maintenance.

Civil works could not be taken up in 14th Block because the underground drainage work is yet to be taken up.

In Anjanapura Layout, electricity, water supply and drainage works have been completed.
