To stop this move to cut 171 trees in Indiranagar, Bangalore to construct a new complex.

STOP THIS INCONSIDERATE MOVE by The Bengaluru Development Authority is planning to chop down 171 trees in order to redevelop the BDA Complex.PLEASE SUPPORT THIS CAUSE BY CHALLENGING THE MOVE AND STOP THIS ATROCITY OF CUTTING TREES IN THE NAME OF DEVELOPMENT.  SHARE THIS PETITION ON ALL SOCIAL MEDIA LIKE FACEBOOK,INSTAGRAM WHATSAPP TO STOP THIS MOVE AND LET THEM KNOW WE CARE FOR OUR TREES! The 30-year-old complex will soon be demolished and a new two-unit complex will come in its place. “The trees may be cut in a few days, depending on when the construction will begin,” a BDA official said. According to the source, BDA is likely to get the environmental clearance to cut the trees as some of the trees listed are not protected under the Environment Protection Act. These include peepal, banyan, Indian beech, tulip tree, rain tree, silver oak, orchid tree, cherry, champak, java plum, mango, lemon, neem, coconut, jackfruit, subabul tamarind and custard apple trees. “The BDA is a profit-making entity. When something under our jurisdiction is not profitable, it is our duty to ensure that revenue is generated. Once the new complex comes up in Indiranagar, it can generate Rs 38 crore profit,” the official said. Reacting strongly to the BDA’s move, Swarna Venkataraman, secretary of Indiranagar 1st Stage resident welfare association, said that the residents of the area will come together and oppose BDA’s move as the complex is located within 75 m of the Kadirenapalya Lake’s buffer zone"Someone's sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago.” ― Warren Buffett"The care of the Earth is our most ancient and most worthy, and after all, our most pleasing responsibility. ” ― Wendell Berry

BDA: please improve panathur, doddakannelli sarjapur road Bangalore.

Below are the road conditions:  The road is not able to handle the sudden increase in traffic due to recently opened IT parks. It takes 30- 45 mins for a car to travel 3 km on this internal road.  This road has been the hub for residential layouts & many connecting roads between CISCO IT hub, Prestige tech park, Embassy tech village, Varthur, Sarjapur road, Gunjur, to the Outer ring road at Kadubisanahalli. When it does not rain, there is a huge amount of dust in the air and visibility is not more than 20 feet. A lot of people commute by two-wheelers and this cannot be good for our health in mid to long term. On top of that, there are huge potholes that stretch from one end of the road to another at 4-5 places along this road. These are backbreaking, to say the least. When it does rain, you get stuck in the crazy traffic and reach home very late drenched in mud and water. The additional risk of slipping on the very slippery 'road', and/or falling into the huge craters (potholes) which you can't see as it is filled with water. Rains just cripple this entire road till Kadubisanahalli bridge. All 3 entry points from ORR to major IT parks like ETV, Cessna is jam-packed. For a person coming from HSR end, either you enter under the flyover where you get stuck because of a tractor/water tanker unable to maneuver the bends or you take a U-turn ahead at Kadubeesanhalli bridge and then get stuck right from there till Adarsh Palm entrance or you take the right into New Horizon school road and again get stuck at the entry point. For a person who lives nearby, its close to impossible to walk in so much mud. Most of the people as I hear in societies come via vehicle only to get away from dust and not because they do not want to walk.  This petition is to majorly get the road repaired along with footpaths and lights so that its safe to walk and will ultimately reduce traffic jams in the area. Some suggestions: Heavy vehicles (except school buses) shouldn't be allowed on these roads from 9 - 11 am and again from 6-8 pm as these are office hours -largely we see construction tractors and water tankers jamming our entry/exit points  Taxis & Autos shouldn't be allowed to park in the above time bands on the Wells Fargo service lane (the road is already a two-lane road and one lane has taxis standing whole day!!) Get these inside village roads repaired and lay proper roads without craters - one road a time Suggest having street lights working at night for visibility
