Water harvesting on flyovers and roads of bangalore

0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!


When ever it rains, water gets stagnated in may roads in Bangalore. This creates a traffic havoc. The road in these places becomes soft and after few days/ weeks, pot holes starts appearing. 

Goverment and people loose lots of money and time because of 

1) Traffic jam due to water clogging

2) Traffic Jam due to potholes. 

3) Back and body pain due to driving in potholes.

4) In few cases the drain is not sufficient to carry all the water, this results in flooding of houses. This usually happens in houses in low lying area. 

We spend a good amount of money to fixing potholes and laying new roads every year. 

Proposed solutions :- 

Implement rain water harvesting on flyovers, under pass and other roads. This will help to solve water getting stagnated in roads and hence stopping pot holes getting created. 

This will also increase the underground water levels.
