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.
