CMC Commissioner Sreekanth Rao stated that the KSRTC bus stand-private bus stand road will be a one-way road due to its dilapidated condition.
To prevent traffic jams on the above road, petty shops doting the road were asked to vacate following orders from the High Court after which the demolition drive is being taken up, the commissioner added.
Rao also added that the development works will be initiated after Dasara at an estimated cost of Rs.1 Crore, of which Rs. 60 lakhs will come from Karnataka Municipal Reforms Project and Rs. 40 lakhs from the Chief Minister’s special grant under the development of small and medium townships.
The commissioner also said that the CMC will give a facelift to the private bus stand and its approach road in the run up to the Dasara festivities in Madikeri.
