MCC mantra: Dig up good roads to create ‘dirt tracks’
Shyam Sundar Vattam, Mysore, May 3, DHNS:

Quote:
Wanted or not the authorities of Mysore City Corporation (MCC) have taken up the median work on Kantharaj Urs Road in Saraswathipuram in the city.



The road which was quite spacious is now being narrowed by putting up the median. The city of Mysore has quite a number of spacious roads thanks to the vision of rulers. They not only planted plants on both sides of these roads but also ensured that it was wide for easy movement of traffic.

However, the beauty of all these roads had been spoiled by the MCC authorities by putting up the median irrespective of the fact whether it was required or not. The latest in the list of casualty is the Kantharaj Urs Road in Saraswathipuram area. This road has been quite spacious and there was no complaint whatsoever about traffic congestion from the general public.

In fact, the vehicle riders are now experiencing hardship because of the new facility by the corporation authorities. The MCC has taken up the work of putting up the median from K G Koppal up to Fire Brigade Office.

It is not known whether the work has been taken up out of ` 100 crore special grant given by the chief minister or from the funds available under Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission (jnNURM) scheme.

All these days the vehicles were moving without any chaos. But now they will face problems once the median work is completed. The riders enter from wrong side if space is not given for left or right turn. The movement of vehicle will become further slow due to parking of vehicles on both the directions as well as stoppage of city buses.

The space between footpath and road is quite spacious and that portion is being used as parking of vehicles. As a result, scores of two-wheelers and four-wheelers are parked right on the road.

Besides, there are good number of trees that are providing shade to people. It is not known whether the MCC has taken up the median work to cut trees citing space crunch. The median put on several other roads has not given desired results except making them narrow and scope for traffic offense like entering from wrong side.

An engineer told Deccan Herald that the purpose of putting the median is to ensure free flow of vehicles in big cities where traffic is busy throughout the city. But it is certainly not required in the area like Saraswathipuram which is not busy all the time.

The median has more disadvantages than advantages as people have to go up the place where right or left turn is given. Basically, the median is best suited for state and highways to ensure lane discipline and overtaking the opposite vehicles in dangerous way.

None of the things are seen in the Saraswathipuram area. It is quite surprising why did the MCC take up such works that causes inconvenience to general public than benefiting them. This has given a feeling whether the corporation is taking up these works only to spend funds released by the government.

Every road in Mysore is special.Cannot pick the best one as such but let me remind you that at present Mysore roads are in their final stages and few which were laid recently have been dug up.Stay away from Mysore for a while- else you will literally experience dust bowl bumpy ride.

Yashted I think we will not be able to see a clean Mysore till these JUSCO works are over.There is absolutely no coordination among the authorities. MCC is busy laying roads to meet the 100 cr deadline and from JUSCO is digging up the newly laid roads to lay pipelines.

Manandavadi road --Median lamps are installed only within MCC limits

This road sports Semi-Urban look with a notified slum at Ashok nagar

[IMG]http://i53.************/2lwnm0k.jpg[/IMG]

You can see median lamps installed near NIE college that is where MCC limit starts

K R S Road: One more broken promise
R Chandra Prakash and Dr Bhamy V Shenoy,Mysore, May 7, DHNS:

Quote:
It was on March 30, 2011 that we saw Deputy Commissioner Harsh Gupta, Mysore City Corporation Commissioner K S Raykar, JnNURM Executive Engineer Subbe Gowda, PWD Executive Engineer Cheluve Gowda, Divisional Railway Manager B B Verma, Railway EE Ravichandran, contractor K V Chennaiah and others were participating in a meeting at the top end of the gradient entrance of Medical College Ladies Hostel on K R S Road to sort out the problems plaguing this crucial road.

Ongoing works between Dasappa circle and Yadavagiri circle on KRS road in Mysore. Contractor Chennaiah and every other officer present said that the entire work will be completed in the next 40 days.

When the DC asked about the lighting works that was to be executed, again in unison, all and sundry assured that the work would be carried out within 40 days.

On May 6, with only four days remaining for the promised 40 days, we were greeted by heaps of mud, rubble, everywhere from VVWW till the new railway bridge. We found intermittently completed concrete retention wall works near Ladies’ Hostel side and very limited work on Railway Museum side. Concrete retention wall and the drainage works from the bridge till VVWW we think is not even 40 percent complete of the total requirement.

The concrete foundation for the road work, let alone the bitumen surfacing, on this side of the bridge in our estimate, is not even 30 percent complete of the total required work.
The works from Dasappa Circle to railway bridge is still at UG drainage man-hole construction stage.

The rainwater drainage work still need to be linked to the underground tunnel on the Babu Jagjivan Ram and Dasappa circle and incomplete on the Mandovi Motors side.
On this stretch of KRS Road concrete foundation work cannot be taken up till these UG manhole and the pipeline work as also the rainwater drainage works are complete.

There is also the fate of the three trees standing at the periphery of the newly expanded road work.

Two passages under newly constructed railway bridge are still filled with the high level mud on one side and effort to dislodge the strong stone wall of the old bridge right at the centre of the other side is going on.

The supervisor for the road and retention wall works put the entire blame for the delay squarely on the contractor in charge of water and UG drainage pipelines for not completing their part of the work.

He said that at least one side of the road work will be completed during next 30 days and traffic will be allowed on this stretch. Work on the other side will be taken up subsequent to this. This means that certainly the time required for completing both sides of the road will be more than the next two Months.

Supervisors working for the UG and Drainage works said they estimated this road will require at least two months for completion. Yet no one is talking about dividers, electric poles and lights; and planting of bushes and the trees!!

The promise to complete this road within 40 days has been blatantly broken. Looking at the pace of work, lack of coordination among the agencies and the missing top level constant supervision and intervention, this road will not see completion even during next 60 days.

It was a promise of all the agencies and the high level officers in a meeting held in public to none other than the deputy commissioner, the topmost bureaucrat of the district.

The moot question is - should not some-one be held accountable for such a casual approach to this crucial link road by our elected representatives?

KARANJI VIHARA MARGA TO BE MADE DOUBLE ROAD
SOM

Quote:
Mysore, May 8 (KMC&RK)- Preparations are on for the upgrading of Karanji Vihara Marga — the road from Bannur Road Dairy Circle to Kurubarahalli Circle on Lalitha Mahal Road — into a double road.


Uploaded with ImageShack.us

This ambitious project of Mysore City Corporation (MCC) that had been put on the back burner for over a year, will now be taken up under the Chief Minister's Rs. 100 crore Special Grant.

A work plan of Rs. 46 lakh has been prepared by the MCC. A sum of Rs. 5 lakh has been paid to the Chamundeshwari Electricity Supply Company (CESC) for shifting the electricity poles along the roadside near the compound of Karanji lake.

Accordingly, some poles have already been shifted and branches of trees along the lake that would obstruct the electricity cables were lopped down by Forest Department personnel. They were prevented from carrying out their work by a group of environmentalists who objected to the lopping of tree branches.

Corporator Mahadevamma, Ananthu, Ravikumar, Subbanna, Harish, Yathiraj, Mahesh and others, who rushed to the spot, berated the environmentalists for preventing development work, which was in the interests of all. They also pointed out that only a few branches of trees were being severed instead of felling the trees. Tension prevailed for some time.

Hundreds of vehicles ply every day on this road leading to J.C. Nagar, Kurubarahalli, K.C. Nagar, Jockey Quarters, Siddharthanagar, Tavarekatte, Chamundi Hill and other residential areas. With the widening of Karanji Vihara Marga into a double road, traffic movement will be eased, said engineer Ravindra.
