Thank you for all your contributions for clearing the black spot. As the Joint Commissioner Mentions, this was the Toughest stretch he had come across because of lot of politicians and the garbage mafia involved in this. Hope, you are easily able to walk on this side of the footpath now without having to worry about the garbage.
After a lot of efforts and spending over 1.25Lakhs, we were able to successfuly cleanup and beautify the black spot stretch opposite to Jaraganahalli Arch (HM Tambourine apartment Exit Gate). However, there are still some of the challenges that remain before us and they are:
1. We have another small stretch near the Jaraganahalli Bus stop where people now have started dumping the garbage.
2. BBMP couldn't help us fixing the footpath, and none of the authorities are taking the responsibility of the footpath (BBMP, BMRCL, NH). We had made several follow ups. But, everyone is running away from responsibility. Hence we are planning to do it ourselves with your help (Fixing the footpath would cost us around 10K)
3. Even after beautification, people are stopping here to piss and they are ruining the sheets that we all together put by spending a lot of money. Hence we are planning to make bamboo fabrication work between the footpath and the road (This is also assumed to cost around 10k)
4. We need to make sure it is easier for people to cross the kanakapura road near the jaraganahalli arch. One way to start with is to paint 3d zebra crossing on kanakapura road (We shall later ask for traffic signal in this stretch)
We have estimated that all these would cost us around 40k+. We have around 7k from your previous contributions We know your contributions are very valuable, we would try to do everything with the cheapest resources possible.
