After four years, survey yet to identify encroachment on Yelachenahalli Lake 6.2.2016 deccanherald.com
Even after the survey during the inspection of Legislative Assembly Committee on Lake Encroachments, the encroachments on Yelachenahalli Lake near Uttarahalli remains a mystery. A team led by Joint Director of Land Records (JDLR) on Saturday held the fifth survey of the lake area since 2012 to identify the encroachment.

Waste is a matter of concern in London too: UK official 5.2.2016 deccanherald.com
The Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) which plagues Bengaluru is also a matter of concern for London. Unlike Bengaluru, the advantage the European City has is a total transparency in its financial dealings. Fiona Fletcher-Smith, Executive Director of Development, Enterprise and Environment in Office of London Mayor, Greater London Authority, (the equivalent of our BBMP Commissioner), who is in the City, said garbage is an issue in London and the City administration has initiated certain measures to deal with it. "We are giving money to the small businesses to try out various solutions to minimise waste. Waste-to-energy is one such solution," Smith said. Waste-to-energy Explaining the waste-to-energy project, she said cooking oil from restaurants is being used to make bio-diesel. She said, "We are running 20 buses using bio-diesel. We are blending 40 per cent of bio-diesel with fossil fuel. These are the small ideas, which will help us." London is also incinerating waste but the electricity consumption and ...

Rs 3-cr makeover project makes a mess of MG Road 3.2.2016 deccanherald.com
The "beautification" of Mahatma Gandhi Road to impress global investors ahead of the Invest Karnataka Summit has made the road an eye sore. The attempt to beautify the one-km stretch from Anil Kumble Circle to the Webbs Junction has been shoddy. There is nothing to show for the Rs three crore spent by the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) for the Invest Karnataka meet - a rephrased word for the government's Global Investors Meet. A senior Palike engineer said the project was sanctioned long ago, but was being executed in a hurry to meet the deadline for Invest Karnataka, which started on Wednesday. The exercise is meant only to give a feel good factor to investors coming to Bengaluru. The loosely-placed kerb stones on the poor concrete foundation and mortar are losing their grip. Lack of curing, substandard and incomplete patchwork reflect the standard of the BBMP, which is often accused of inferior work and scams. An engineer associated with the project clarified that the work does not include ...

Civic groups plan 23 cycle stands in HSR Layout 2.2.2016 deccanherald.com
Cyclists in HSR Layout will no longer have to struggle for space as designated cycle parking structures will come up in their locality soon. Bicycle stands will be set up at 23 places in HSRLayout under the 'Cycle Stand Project' proposed by HSR Cyclist Group, along with SPNIT (Somsundarpalya Neighbourhood Improvement Trust). These parking spaces will come up at bus stops, supermarkets, temples, banks and other public places. The two groups proposed the idea in an attempt to encourage cycling among residents and also help create infrastructure for the cyclists. The two groups submitted the proposal to United Technologies Corporation (UTC) in May 2015, when the UTC had launched the Neighbourhood Improvement Partnership Challenge. After a series of presentations and discussions, the project was selected as one of the 12 projects to be executed as part of the United Technologies CSR programme, in December last year. "There will be two kinds of stands - open and closed. While closed stand will come up at six ...
