Bengaluru’s dusty, dangerous roads amid COVID-19 crisis: Concerned mayor to approach Smart City MD

During Bengaluru city rounds and on monitoring COVID situation, the mayor came across a dusty situation as the Smart City project was taken up. His concern remains that these projects ignored safety aspects in many areas. Seeing this, mayor Gautham Kumar says he will approach Smart City Project MD

Bengaluru: Bengaluru's Smart City project has become a point of concern as it lacks work safety standards. While comparing the Indore's project, the city mayor said, the Smart City Project does not follow safety norms. As he came across projects he saw no barricades and no caution tapes to alert the public.

He is also worried about the rising dust in these areas and said this is an added worry during COVID as lungs may get affected. He said he will write a letter to Smart City MD and get the issue addressed at the earliest.
