The Karnataka government has prepared a proposal for widening of B Rachaiah Double Road in Chamarajanagar. Funds have been set aside to shift the water supply pipeline, light poles and UG cables as part of the widening work and clearing illegal compounds.
Presently, pedestrians and vehicle users on the road face problems everyday. A series of accidents take place as the damaged footpath stretch from Bhuvaneshwari Circle to Ramasamudra force pedestrians to walk on the road itself.
The pavement, for almost four kilometres, remains damaged posing a danger for people to walk, which directly affects smooth flow of vehicular traffic.
