More than sharing the concern over cutting trees on this beautiful stretch, I haven’t seen any concrete material on how exactly will BMRC ‘extend’ Metro to Banashankari as was announced recently. Metro Route Map still shows R V Road Terminal as the last stop. BMRC’s regular update note says that DMRC had submitted a draft DPR in September 2007. Anyone seen or heard more about this ‘draft DPR’?
I am sure BMRC does its research and recordings before making these decisions. But why is it that they don’t share some of that with us. This is not a Rs 30 crore flyover we are talking, its the biggest project Bangalore has ever seen. Isn’t it fair to expect better transparency in decision making and execution?
