Get a decent road in the neighborhood.
My neighborhood has two big IT-Tech parks and one of them is even a SEZ unit. The back gate of these tech parks opens to Doddakanelli-Kadubeesanhalli road (also known as Gear school road) and forms a major route for people working in these tech parks and the four schools for children. Some months ago, the authorities had dug up this road to lay Kaveri water pipeline. Good for us! But they never reconstructed this road, just filled it with mud and left it. On a non-rainy day, you just can't breathe in this air full of dust particles. On a rainy day, the full road becomes muddy and you can't walk! The two wheeler vehicles are on high risk of slipping on such a muddy road and might fall into a pothole full of water. Bangalore was in limelight last year after the rains when several people died due to these potholes. Will the authorities come to senses only when someone falls into potholes and die? My sincere request is to get this road constructed as soon as possible before the rainy season and so that no one loses their life due to such negligence.
Appeal to City Police to allow use of cycling racks
I got to know this from a group of triathletes in bangalore. In bangalore recently we are being fined to carry our cycles on cycle racks back side of the car by local cops Even the IPS is allowing and says it's absolutely fine... But the local police is creating unnecessary trouble This never happened before. We have so many atheletes in bangalore who carry their cycles to avoid traffic in the city area and ride safely outside the city. We want the city police to allow us to carry our cycles at the cycle rack which is attached back side of our car. This will help us to carry our bikes wherever we want to anywhere.. And for going to the race venue... It is also very helpful. This is a very unexpected thing which is happening. Only trouble the local police is causing. The IPS is not aware that they are making such trouble
Fix the sarjapur road mayhem
As the road widening is going on in Bangalore Sarjapur road connecting Sarjapur with Outer ring road , it is in complete chaos for more than a year now. Whoever has traveled in this road would have seen that it is completely dusty and potholed. The traffic congestion in the road is overwhelming. Also the pollution is very severe in this area and the nearby residents would be facing so much health problems because of the pollution. I personally think twice before i try to walk the stretch from Columbia Asia hospital to Motherhood hospital junction.Taking vehicle is even more difficult. The work is going very slow and sometimes its on standstill for months. Given the fact that the road is being used by tens of thousands on a daily basis, it should have been finished on a warfoot. Please support this petition so that it reaches the right people to make right decisions faster. Also please share with your friends and other groups so that it becomes a collective voice.
TO STOP THE FELLING OF 33000 TREES IN BENGALURU FOR THE PRR PROJECT!
The Bangalore Development Authority(BDA) has announced the Peripheral Ring Road (PRR) project, an 8 lane, 65.5 km long road connecting Tumkur Road to Hosur Road estimated to cost 15,111.42 crores. The draft Environmental Impact Assessment dated June 2020 reveals that the project requires the felling of 33000+ trees. The BDA has sought to acquire 25 acres forest area from the Jarakabande Forest, from which approximately 16 thousand trees are to be cut down. The project will also have a grave impact on 6 water bodies which fall within the ambit of this project. The water resources and quality in the catchment areas of TG Halli will be impacted greatly. The proposed Peripheral Ring Road project will be in close proximity to the Bannerghatta National Park and Puttenahalli Bird Conservation Reserve endangering thousands of species while damaging the biodiversity of the city. The removal of such a huge number of trees will suffocate our Bangalore proudly known as the Garden city. The project would have a devastating impact on Bengaluru's air quality, weather and its ecosystem. We as responsible citizens strongly oppose the PRR project. We demand that the project either be scrapped completely or be revised such that no harm is done to our environment.
Remove the mini garbage dumps on the streets of Bengaluru
Every morning as i leave my home for work, i come across several mini garbage dumps which stink up the entire region and also help diseases and insects to breed easily. There are animals on the street eating this garbage riddled with plastic and other toxic materials. The natural beauty of our city is diminishing and the smell makes all commuters sick to the skin of their teeth. The Environmental safety is totally tarnished and new diseases are being created. These mini dumps also pollutes the region's soil and water which pose a deadly health hazard to all the local residents in that area. i would propose the governing body to take action by at least introducing larger dustbins in every corner of the street and more frequent garbage pickup schedule, also heavy fines must be imposed on people throwing garbage in areas other than inside the designated bins.
Garbage Bins in Jayanagar 9th Block(East End Road)/
Clearance of Garbage Heap
A garbage dump does not belong in a residential neighborhood. Here or anywhere. Please act now and install Garbage Bins. Let us save our neighborhood from Trash. The messes it creates, the fumes that comes out from burning are toxic and cause respiratory ailments like asthma. Garbage burning is also a leading cause of air pollution. Bangalore’s air quality is poor and severely affecting the health of children and people here. I being a resident near Reddy Hospital (Jayanagar 9th Block , East end circle), early morning to midnight, Garbage is dumped alongside road and black spots are more that causes Asthma, Lung problems, Fatigue, to students, people and everyone travel every other day. This also makes the BBMP employees dig the waste and fill it in big trucks daily in their hands thus causing diseases to them as no one is aware hoe to segregate wet and dry waste. Let us change this scenario by installing two Garbage Bins properly and maintaining it.
Support Free Ration and Relief for Daily Income Workers During the City Lockdown
As a corporate city, Bangaloreans rely on cheap food stalls and carts around for a quick lunch or meal during their busy work hours. And these small business owners rely on you for their daily wages as well. For these citizens, missing a day's payment could put them much closer to being under the poverty line. And a lockdown of their business or work for more than a week could permanently hinder their survival during these pressing times. While the government is taking active measures to curb the spread of COVID-19, the Janta Curfew, which has requested all citizens to quarantine themselves for 14 hours while street food vendors have been asked to stay closed until further notice. There is no promise from the State Government or the Municipality to provide relief or free ration for these people, nor is there any proper sensatization or awareness being done to educate them on health regulations and measures - both personal and for their business as well. Without having any schemes or provisions, or even being aware of those that they could avail, these people are also victims to the virus far beyond just health issues. We petition to the Karnataka State Government to provide Emergency Schemes for Free Ration or Relief to these at-risk Street Food Vendors. While Social Distancing is the easiest way to combat COVID-19, not everyone has the privilege of being able to sit in the comforts of their own home. For most, going out is the only way they can survive and support themselves and their family. By signing this petition, you would be helping someone in great need through the simplest way. Let's help those that are the very reason for our street food cravings in quarantine right now. Let's help the ones that really need your support right now.

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
Build a FLYOVER at Doddanekundi Junction on Outer Ring Road, Bangalore
Doddnekundi Road Junction on ORR is flooded with traffic mess. Vehicles coming from all directions. Vehicular traffic is heavy at any time of the day not necessarily peak time. There are residential complexes, malls, office complexes just abutting the junction with everyone wanting to jostle for space to move. One crossing left to right, another right too left, one heading straight another one taking U turn, one crossing across, one coming from service road, etc. etc. No traffic lights or no traffic cops are able to control the traffic in a smooth manner. Vehicles taking as much as 10 minutes to cross the junction. It is JUST a NIGHTMARE continuing for few years now with vehicle drivers, pedestrians and traffic police trying to cope with increasing traffic day by day. How long can we tolerate this mess??? Flyover got approved in the state budget few years ago and BDA who is entrusted to build the flyover has just not initiated the work for reasons unknown and no one explains.
