Promised park eludes Benson Town residents 6.7.2016 deccanherald.com
The residents of Binny Crescent Road in Benson Town have been waiting for a promised park since the 1970s. A three-acre plot adjoining the layout used to be a quarry before it was filled up and a link road was laid there. The promise made then has still not been fulfilled and the area has now become a dumping yard and a breeding ground for mosquitoes and den of illegal activities. "It would have been nice to have a park here. Instead, there is a dumping ground where people are always burning plastic. I have severe breathing problems because of this," said Shyamala Ganesh, a senior resident who has been living here since 1988. "We are having a huge mosquito menace," said Sadiqa Peerbhoy, who has also been living in Binny Town for several decades. Last year, five people in her house were affected by Chikungunya. "Imagine, so many people being affected at once. We could not move around." Fed up with the inaction of the authorities, the residents took it upon themselves to clean the area twice in 2014 and ...

Traffic on Ballari Road, which is the only access to Kempegowda International Airport from the city, might ease with the state government finally starting work on the missing links for the long-pending alternative road from Nagawara on the Outer Ring Road to the rear of the airport. If things goes according to plan, the airport - which handled a record 18 million passengers last year - will not only have a toll-free alternative road, but a much-needed second entrance from the southwest corner of its compound in the next six months. A top source in the Bengaluru International Airport Ltd confirmed the new development. He said: "The airport would have another entrance at the southwest corner of its compound as and when the alternative road from Nagawara-Thanisandra is complete. The new entrance would be similar to the existing one at the western side with access to vehicles to the airport." The proposed alternative road, which runs parallel to NH-7 (Devanahalli) would help east Bengaluru commuters to reach ...
