Stop Bengaluru's Suffocation
This petition had 46 supporters
Bengaluru is the fastest growing Metropolis in India. It is spread over a large area,which requires people to travel over longer distances whether it is for work, medical attention or recreation.Hundreds of additional motor vehicles enter the roads every day.
The increased number of road vehicles has resulted in congested roads, pollution and accidents.Day in and day out one hears of road rage violence and ambulances being held up. The long suffering Bengalorean spends more time in commuting than his friends in Delhi, Chennai, Kolkata ,Mumbai or Hyderabad.
This is because all these cities have a full fledged Commuter Railway Service
Only a commuter railway service can prevent Bengaluru from suffocating.
Every commuter train can carry 3000 passengers thereby replacing sixty buses, 1000 four wheelers or 1500 two wheelers.
A commuter railway service will cost a fraction of a Metro.
I therefore, earnestly appeal to Shri Suresh Prabhu Ji, Honourable Union Minister for Railways to start additional commuter services in Bengaluru.
