Hulimavu-Begur road in Akshayanagar Layout gets a facelift

Sapna Prabhu tracks the progress of work on the Hulimavu-Begur road. While citizens must complain about inefficiencies, one must also highlight the good work being done by local administration, she says.

In October 2015, I had written an article on the absence of asphalted roads in Akshayanagar Layout, off Bannerghatta Road.
