Kadubeesanahalli underpass flooding problem fixed: BDA

The underpass under construction at Kadubeesanahalli junction on the Outer Ring Road now has a proper drainage system to prevent flooding, says the BDA.

Earlier in May 2012, the Outer Ring Road between Marathahalli and Kadubeesanahalli gridlocked following a heavy downpour and the flooding of the underpass, one section (south going) of which was completed. The BDA Chief Engineer TN Chikkarayappa says, “We will collect fines from the contractors for all the violations once the work is completed.”

The Rs 39.8 crores project contracted to Simplex Infrastructure Ltd., has been delayed. The deadline for completion of the underpass work was July this year. It has been extended to August now. The work will be completed by end of August and traffic will be allowed from the first week of September, says the BDA.

However, the process of restoring the service roads will take another two to three months. Chikkrayappa says, “These things depend on the company. We cannot give exact date on when the work will be completed.”

Though the BDA claims drainage work is completed and will prevent flooding, the next major downpour will be the real test.
