Some of the key points raised by the local citizens include adequate space for pedestrians and cyclists, rainwater harvesting facility and a uniform carriageway.
The BBMP is expected to re-do the design after consulting local residents.
“The residents want rainwater harvesting, friendly infrastructure for non-motorised transport and parking facility. We might take 10-15 days to prepare the new drawings. The project implementation will take about three months,” a senior BBMP official said.
Sathish Rao, a resident of Indiranagar, urged officials to take ideas from CG Road in Ahmedabad while finalising the design.
“What has been carried out on the 80 Feet Road cannot be replicated on the 100 Feet Road, although both roads have a four-lane carriageway. No two roads are the same. Not much attention has been given to ensuring footpaths on the 80 feet road are free from encroachments,” he said, suggesting BBMP officials come up with project specifications for 100 Feet Road by meeting the requirements of traders, cyclists, pedestrians and motorists.
The BBMP has just completed work on the 80 Feet Road that connects Old Madras Road and the Old Airport road, which is expected to be inaugurated by Chief Minister

White-topping of the CMH Road is currently under progress.
During the development of 100 Feet Road, residents have also requested the BBMP to not increase the carriageway. They complain that the Palike has not shared the detailed project report with the residents yet.
Some residents also say that the BBMP officials are not paying enough attention to the Jeevanbhimanagar Road, which is in a state of complete mess.
The Bangalore Water Supply and Sewerage Board had recently dug up the road but it has not been restored yet.
