Ring Road woes

April 7, 2019


This has reference to ‘Garbage dump on Ring Road’ by B.G. Balaji (SOM dated Apr.3).

The entire track of Ring Road is filthy and there are mounds of debris everywhere. There’s no ‘feel good factor’ when you are on this road. Several stretches of this road are pitch dark after sunset and also need asphalting in many places.

Many people have brought this pathetic state of affairs to the notice of the authorities, including through letters published in your paper, to no avail. MUDA, it seems, has handed over this road to National Highways Authority of India (NHAI). So why’s NHAI neglecting and not maintaining this road? Will the Deputy Commissioner look into this please?

It’s very dangerous to drive on this road in the nights. Who cares when there are accidents and people lose their limbs and die for no fault of theirs. This road, in fact, is made to order for the criminals to commit thefts, rape and murder and disappear in the dark.

Is the debris recycling equipment installed (somewhere) by the authorities functioning? And where are the wardens appointed to catch and fine those who are dumping the debris and the filth left, right and centre on the Ring Road?

One wonders how Mysuru was declared third cleanest city in spite of these aberrations. Could we ask the NHAI or whoever it is to get their act together and do the needful please?
