Foot over bridge to be removed


The non sense foot over bridge built at Yedhe Khut, Dr.Rajendra Prasad Circle on college road near Vanita Vidyalaya will now be removed. The city corporation has invited tenders from reputed contractors for the removal of the bridge.

The foot over bridge built in 2000 by BUDA has never been used and was used for illegal activities and for advertising and recently for film shooting.

The bridge was built at a cost Rs.13 lakhs in year 2000 and now Rs.5 lakhs will be spent for the removal.

The dismantled bridge will kept at the corporation premises and later might be installed at first gate or CBT, but nothing of this is final.

This particular foot over bridge was wrongly built and main intention of building this was school children and commuters from villages who want to come into city will sue this to cross the College road.

But no one used to use this bridge, atlast its end is here.

Hope the removed bridge would be again installed in a scientific manner and in such a way that people will make use of it.

  1. planing is very gud to build in CBT or any other places in bgm.But this is unceesary wasting money.
    people have to thing now.Way are spending to much money on this type of plan.
    THINK THINK AND THINK FIRST before doing any job.

  2. if belgaumites were that conscious, they would not have left the overbridge unutilised for so many years. why blame the corporation for that.

    • Ya but if the corporation is really interested in public welfare esp. pedestrians then, it must install foot bridge at Gogte Circle (Opp to Ganapati Temple at Station nr State Bank) and at Rani Chennamma Circle (near Court) where it is absolutely essential.
      See brother they have to statisfy their tummy with additional money tats the funda..

  3. 5 lakhs for the removal of the bridge… they are sucking the money of poor belgaumites… and doing nothing… from the development fund…
