Lingarajapuram road is tattered with potholes and craters.

Story so far: Poorly constructed roads aren’t new to Bengaluru residentsThe latest example is one leading up to St. Charles High School. It’s dotted with potholes and craters. The roads here have been like this for a long time. 

  • The roads near the Lingarajapuram flyover are broken in several places. When it rains, as it has been recently, they get filled with water, and people can’t cross or walk. Adding to commuters’ headaches are hawkers and vegetable vendors taking up the free spaces.

It’s the worst in the morning as parents come to drop off their kids at school. Bikes and autos have trouble driving on the road trying to avoid potholes. When it rains, people are unable to walk. 

No action: While vehicles can normally drive around the potholes, there are just too many. People are waiting for authorities to repair the road. However, complaints to the authorities have not resulted in any action.
