I wanted to know how is NICE road connecting roads situation around Bannergatta, I heard couple of months back they are putting tarr in small road which connects NICE and bannergatta road, Is this done both the ends? I mean from kanakapura road and towards hosur road around bannergatta road, Please update about it. Thanks in advance.

Also today I heard NICE won the case to get land to build bridge along Gottigere Lake near Bannergatta road. So expect NICE stretch between Hosur road - Tumkur road would complete in 1 year from now at least.

Regards,

Ravi.

Towards Hosur road also the tarring completed. Sometime they don't allow you to enter to NICE road through Gottigere, may be because of the traffic. In such case you can take a left turn, after meenakshi temple, if you are coming from the city side and that road take you directly to the NICE road towards Hosur road side. Towards Kanakapura side there is no problem.

HC nod for NICE road around Gottigere tank

TIMES NEWS NETWORK



Bangalore: The Karnataka High Court on Thursday quashed the Kumaraswamy government notification of November 4, 2006 on the alignment of the NICE peripheral road near Gottigere tank. It directed the road be based on pillars sunk in the tank and go over it.

ďIt is apparent on the face of records that the government had interfered and intruded into the power conferred upon BMICAPA. The BMICAPA also failed to discharge its authority and the order passed under Section 14-A of Karnataka Town and Country planning Act is contrary, gross violation and extraneous interference in the domain of statutory authority BMICAPA,Ē the division Bench headed by Chief Justice P D Dinakaran observed in its verdict running into 100 pages.

The Bench allowed the petitions filed by Nandi Infrastructure Corridor Enterprise and PILs filed by B K Chakrapani and the Electronic City Industries Association and dismissed the contempt petition filed by Vijayaraghavan.

NICE challenged the notification on various grounds, contending that the order was against the approval accorded under the BMICAPA master plan on Feb. 12, 2004 for laying the road around the lake. After the Supreme Court confirmed the judgment of the high court upholding the project and directing the state government to implement it expeditiously, the government placed new hurdles. One was the Nov. 4, 2006 notification, the company claimed. Environmentalist B K Chakrapani and ECIA filed independent writ petitions challenging the notification. Chakrapani contended that the construction of the road in the middle of the tank, though on pillars, would destroy it and affect the environment. ECIA contended that the road was incomplete near Gottigere tank on account of the realignment required by the notification and caused enormous inconvenience to employees of industries in Electronic City in their daily commute.

WHERE IS IT?

In Gottigere village on Bannerghatta Road
Live tank reportedly over 500 years old Source of discharge to downstream lakes like Hulimaavu, Madivala, Bellandur lakes Total area 14.98 hectares Water-spread area (as per Lake Development Authority) 8.52 hectares RAP AFTER RAP

In their battle with NICE, H D Deve Gowda and son have been repeatedly pulled up by the courts over the years. The latest judgment is another blow


Bangalore: Although former Prime Minister H D Deve Gowda and his son former CM H D Kumaraswamy would like avoid any more court censure, their mistakes related to the Bangalore Mysore Infrastructure Corridor (BMIC) project have led them to face the courtís wrath.

On Thursday, they got the latest rap when the high court quashed the notification issued by Kumaraswamy as CM in November 2006 on the Gottigere tank issue.

Through a government order, Kumaraswamy directed Nandi Infrastructure Corridor Enterprises (NICE) to build the BMIC peripheral road over Gottigere tank by installing pillars in the tank bed. However, the notification was challenged by NICE on the grounds that a road in the middle of the tank would destroy it and affect the environment.

FINALLY, WORK CAN MOVE

With this court order, NICE can link peripheral road connecting Hosur Road and Kanakapura Road taking the alignment by the side of the tank near Bannerghatta Road. This development is certainly a setback to the father-son duo, who have been on a collision course with BMIC promoter Ashok Kheny ever since J H Patel signed the Frame Work Agreement (FWA) in 1997 for the BMIC project.

Recently, the Supreme Court made strong observations against Gowda related to the letter and book on BMIC, which he forwarded to high court judges.

DONíT DOUBT COURTíS INTEGRITY: SC

The SC observed that Gowda was free to write any number of letters, books and could hold seminars on BMIC, but should not doubt the courtís integrity on the issue. The SC rap was a follow-up to a stricture passed by the Karnataka HC in the same case.

Ever since the government started taking the NICE head-on, the father and son have been rapped on five occasions by the HC and SC.

ROUTE
TROUBLE

NICE entered into an agreement with the state government in April 1997 to build a peripheral road. The alignment passes through Gottigere Lake bisecting it. Based on the petition by Suresh Heblikar, the high court in June 1999 ordered NICE not to lay any road bisecting Gottigere Lake, preventing or disturbing inflow of water into the tank. NICE accepted the order and the PWD department in June 2002 accepted the NICE proposal to build an alternative road. A realignment was proposed but, due to various reasons the matter was pending in the high court.

ROUGH HISTORY

May 2005:
HC in its judgment allowed NICE to go ahead with the BMIC project

April 20, 2006:
A severe censure when the same order was upheld by the Supreme Court. It also imposed a fine of Rs 5 lakh on the state and asked it to deposit with NICE for bringing frivolous arguments in an appeal against the HC

November 2006:
Perhaps the most severe when the SC dismissed the governmentís petition seeking review of its April 20 order on BMIC project, and rehearing of the matter. The Kumaraswamy government had contended that NICE had secured 2,150 acres excess land around Bangalore worth over Rs 30,000 crore, which would result in loss to the exchequer

October 2007:
The Kumaraswamy government decided to ditch NICE and invite global tenders to complete BMIC project. However, the plan remained only on paper as this idea was struck down by the SC

March 2008:
The SC issued notice to the government asking it to reply on the contempt petition filed by NICE. The court issued notices asking the government to respond why the SC order on BMIC was not implemented

If you are coming from Kanakpura road through NICE road, take a left on to Bannerghatta road. The next right will take you to Hosur road. But, the police has barricaded it and made it as a one way now. If you don't want to break the one-way rule, don't take this.

So, after getting in to Bannerghatta road, you will have to go further to Meenakshi Temple side and then, take the right just before Meenakshi temple. I think the road divider also starts on bannerghatta road at this point.

After taking right, keep following the main road.

Many people take the first right turn after hitting Bannerghatta road (even though it is made a one-way now). It is through the bank of Gottigere lake. I think, it's just after the first hump after entering Bannerghatta road.

Hopefully, the NICE will complete this streatch fast after the recent cout order.

There is no change in routes or directions. Its same as before except few connectivity is improved around Bannergatta road junction.

Just after Electronic City in Hosur road, need to take left to NICE road and when road ends look for newly laid up small roads. To confuse you there are 3 roads connect Bannergatta road from NICE road from hosur road end, and Within km you reach Bannergatta road and its same road you need to take from Bannergatta road to reach NICE road towards Mysore road again except that small kachha road is better now with tarr.

I suggest you keep following small good roads (tarred just 1 month back) and also watch out for other vehicles which way they take.

Actually its good that they relaid these village roads recently. Poor villagers faced so much of problems because of all these hurdles. Its very unfortunate that in India there is no value to innocent people.

Ravi.
