Infrastructure Solutions: Keeping The City & Economy Thriving
Over the years, the world has moved from rural lives to compact, concrete urban ones. But this rapid urbanisation comes with its own challenges like coming up with infrastructure solutions that can cope with the challenges caused by the large expansion of populations in concentrated spaces. It is crucial that established cities build, maintain, and enhance substantial power, water, transport and telecommunication networks, to promote economic development and population growth.
Though Bengaluru is considered to be the world’s fastest-growing tech hub, it continues to be plagued by basic infrastructure problems. One of its indications is the city’s notorious traffic congestion, which leads to longer travel times. It is pivotal that the commuter network in a city is competent enough to meet the demands of the urban economy. An inadequate transport system can severely affect societies and will impact the benefits that dynamic marketplaces bring.
The Karnataka cabinet has recently approved a Rs 6000 crore boost to Bengaluru’s infrastructure along with a grand plan to address the mobility issue at the Hebbal junction. These much-awaited infrastructure solutions will definitely overcome the potential negative economic consequences of a failing system.
The long-term plans involve effective interventions at KR Puram and Tumakuru Road where vehicular density is known to be horrible. As per the proposal, we can expect three flyovers planned along Ballari road to increase the number of lanes from the city to the airport. The other initiatives are a three-lane underpass from Tumakuru road to KR Puram, a two-lane flyover from KR Puram towards the airport, widening of the service road from the airport to KR Puram from two lanes to three, widening KR Puram-Tumakuru road to four lanes. An elevated circular skywalk near the busy Banashankari metro station intersection is also part of the scheme.
It comes as no surprise that there are many challenges caused by poor infrastructure and rapid urbanization, but it also creates many opportunities. New, creative approaches to development and financing are essential for a more efficient and productive city.
