Bengaluru, Jan 27: After a successful "Save Whitefield" campaign, now Kormanagala residents of Bengaluru, are all set to hold a protest rally against the poor infrastructure of the locality and heavy traffic grievances.
The protest rally will be held on Sunday, January 31 on the pavement lining the Sony World Junction, from 5 pm to 6 pm and around 500 residents are expected to join hands together to hold a peaceful protest.
The infrastructure issues such as huge traffic jams, non-stop movement of the vehicles and increasing noise and air pollution inside the residential areas have left residents irritated. Residents have also complained that they approached the traffic police but their pleas fell on deaf ears.
"Traffic police are the ones who direct vehicles to go onto the interior lanes of Koramangala" one of the residents alleged. [Bengaluru: After 'Save Whitefield', now Sarjapura residents to march protest]
Nitin Sheshadri, another resident complained, "implementation of infrastructure projects will help to decongest traffic and the elevated road from Ejipura to Kendriya Sadan, a road from Ejipura to Agara Road and a flyover from Silk Board Junction to Forum Junction are among the stalled projects."
"The only agenda of traffic police is to let the traffic pass and they don't seem to care about the residents' welfare. The completion of infrastructure projects will not only help commuters but us (residents) too", he further said.
Dr Radhakrishna, member, Koramangala RWA said, "The civic projects of the locality is in an incomplete mode and we also want to raise voice against the terrible state of roads."
