I am a resident of malleswaram 13 th cross we have no issue with collection of garbage, as two persons visit our layout with the collection vehicle on regular basis, thanks to the good collection system introduced,
1. White Topping is going to increase localized heat absorption and Environmental impact is not being considered. White topping must be stopped. White topping is a disaster from a corruption perspective also.
2. The idea of using small cement blocks for footpath is further creating problems:
2.1 Increases localized heating. 2.2 Reduces the groundwater potential when it rains. 2.3 The ground absorbing rainwater is being eliminated completed. 2.4 Just think of all the trees along the footpath. We are giving it a slow death. 2.5 The laying of small cement blocks giving all the footpath for all the 2 wheelers to use the footpath for driving during traffic jams.
What a pathetic design approach is being taken up by Bangalore Municipal Corporation.
