BENGALURU: The BBMP site claims the construction of a foot overbridge (FOB) close to the ITC manufacturing unit, Wheeler Road, east Bengaluru, is nearing of completion though not anything remotely corresponding to building task may also be noticed on the flooring.
Asked in regards to the fate of the challenge, Srinivas R, executive engineer (east), BBMP, mentioned, “The mushy might be known as in six months and work will start in 9 months. It’ll be able by way of 2020.”

Srinivas mentioned he's unaware in regards to the BBMP site’s claims on the challenge.

The Wheeler Road street underbridge (RUB) is among the many initiatives taken up by way of the Palike in collaboration with South Western Railway. The FOB might be 131feet long and 4ft broad, and cost Rs 10 crore.

BBMP officers declare the challenge might be taken up below a public-private partnership, with the civic agency incurring no monetary funding. “It’s completely funded by way of a personal advertising company and we are not investing a unmarried rupee,” Srinivas asserted.


The FOB will also be provided with a boost which is able to accommodate nearly 16 persons at a time. The structure might be a big boon for ITC manufacturing unit employees and others. “Lakhs of folks try to move the street amid chaotic traffic and the bridge will help them,” Srinivas mentioned.


Rajesh Swamy, an worker of ITC manufacturing unit, mentioned, “During top hours, crossing the street is not possible. Though police are around, there is a risk of being run over.”


Manikandan P, a shop owner, mentioned the street lacks a zebra crossing. “Sometimes we have to stay up for as much as 10 minutes to move. If the FOB comes up, we will catch buses on time,” he added.
