What has worked in the last 5 years?

Varthur Lake finally fenced - after 3 years of citizen struggle 4 acre public land fenced in Ramagondanahalli Hoodi Railway Station - completed & inaugurated Ward Committees formed in four wards in Mahadevapura AC Whitefield Main Road - tarred, good footpaths in place What has not worked in the last 5 years?

Growth not matching City Development Plan (CDP) - Blatant Building and land sanctions not matched by infrastructure growth Many key roads remain dangerous and unnavigable - R Narayanapura Road, Vibgyor Road, Thubarahalli Road. Instead, a new road is being made where none is required encroaching on lake land (Pattandur Agrahara Lake) Most public lands unfenced, thus becoming dumping grounds and ripe for encroachment Full fledged Suburban Railway remains a dream Residents unable to get enrolled in voter list resulting in serious disenfranchisement Rs. 100 Crore Signal Free Corridor (SFC) is a sham Dry Waste Collection Center (DWCC) did not even take off, thus Public Private Partnership was unable to progress High Court orders being flouted blatantly for garbage management, flex banners for commercial & political advertising, and single use plastic bags by shops Blatant violation of NGT Order by the Minor Irrigation Dept (ie Govt) at Varthur Lake in building a major pipeline All lakes yet to be fully fenced and rejuvenated with Varthur Lake still a toxic cesspool Air Pollution out of control and insufficient availability of mechanized cleaners No enforcement of traffic violators resulting in blatant flouting of rules BMTC Buses continue to ignore the rules and stop at junctions instead of actual bus stops. Hope Farm and Kundanahalli remain hopeless examples of this problem
