BANGALORE: This year, VV Puram will be undergoing a facelift as it is all set to get newly asphalted roads, public toilets , wider footpaths and a pathway for elderly people that stretches from Lalbagh to Krishna Rao Park.
Anil Kumar, Corporator of VV Puram ward, said that this year the tender process had almost been completed, and the contractors would be starting work next month. Speaking to City Express, he lamented that the footpath on Krishna Rao Road had been taken over by hawkers, and some measures were needed to overcome this menace.
The Corporator also plans to construct a pathway that stretches from Lalbagh West gate to Krishna Rao Park. The pathway will be specifically meant for elderly people, so that they can walk without fear of the oncoming traffic. Public toilets will be constructed in two places, one near Sajjan Rao Circle, and the other on the nearby Diagonal Road. Kumar added five public toilets will be set up in the coming future.
To prepare for the monsoons, potholes are being repaired, asphalt work is being carried out on other roads wherever necessary. Kumar also mentioned that drains were being desilted and cleaned in order to prevent flooding.
