The Karnataka Road Development Corporation Limited (KRDCL) has proposed yet another elevated corridor (10 km) in Bengaluru, between Hudson Circle and Sumanahalli (Magadi Road).
Proposals have been invited by KRDC from consultants to prepare the feasibility report. The corridor is in addition to the 88-km network of elevated corridors, a tender for the first phase of which was floated on March 3.
the North-South Elevated Corridor from Hebbal to Silk Board threatens to grey the entire the Jayamahal Road stretch from Mehkri Circle to the Cantonment station, which is one of Bengaluru’s greenest, tree-lined streets.
According to a Deccan Herald report, the Environmental Impact Assessment Report prepared for the elevated corridor project clearly acknowledges that the trees will either be pruned, felled or translocated.
