Bengaluru Smart City Limited (BSCL) has missed another deadline causing further delay to developmental works on Avenue Road.
Story so far: BSCL was supposed to build footpaths and utility ducts on Avenue Road. The work began in January 2021 and was expected to be finished by October 2021. But the work was found unfinished in April 2022.
- BBMP administrator gave them a 20-day deadline to complete the work, but that was also missed.
Hardships: BSCL engineers are yet to fix underground drainage. This has led to the flooding of shopping complexes during the rains. A couple of people also got injured due to the open manholes. Dust is another issue affecting the people in the area.
What now: Currently, water and underground drainage pipes are being laid. BSCL hopes to complete all its pending work by the end of this month.
