Did it work for you?

Many of us have been working with various organizations over the many months triggering various pieces of work that are bits and pieces of the overall puzzle. A sewage line here, a cauvery water line there, a transformer move here etc.. As we had mentioned, we had requested BTP to help us with our traffic woes and given various suggestions. They did their study in response and came back to implement some interesting changes. Whether it worked or not, it sure woke people up. Many like it. And many vocal ones don’t, Some problems are real. Children unable to cross a suddenly busy stretch to board a bus. Big Bazaar signal is a mess. But overall has this plan worked and will some tweaks fix it? Give us your feedback here.
