The Bengaluru civic body is set to fill all the potholes in the city by November 15.
Story so far: The deadline for repairing potholes within the municipal boundaries has been set to November 15 by Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) Chief Commissioner Tushar Giri Nath. Previously, the due date was November 10. Every day, about 800-1,000 potholes are filled.
- A BBMP official stated that around 6,000 to 6,500 potholes are yet to be filled.
- All potholes are to be cleaned and cut into a square shape before being filled.
Directions: The BBMP administrator instructed all potholes to be repaired by November 15 in a virtual meeting with the zonal commissioners on November 5. He also directed them to provide him with a report on the situation. The National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) was ordered to assess pothole and road repair projects in the city last week by the Karnataka High Court.
