After the failure of the ‘white-topping’ project in Bangalore, Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) is all set for their new pilot project of micro-surfacing on the 2-km stretch on Cubbon Road. It is on account of trust that micro-surfacing will help enhance the life and quality of the roads and streets, something the city organization has been struggling with.
The BBMP endeavored the undertaking a year ago when it tied up with Hindustan Colas Ltd (Hincol) to apply what it called ‘Road Doctor’ on Ballari Road. Unfortunately, the project was rejected since it was not attainable because of the machinery required for the project.
The method includes topping the road with a 6-mm-thick slurry seal. The seal will shield the black-top and protect it from disintegrating. Besides, it will also be water-resistant, with the goal that the roads are dry and smooth to drive on.
The Cubbon street examination will be initiated with Ahmedabad-based firm, Elsamex who were in charge of micro-surfacing the outer ring street in Hyderabad. Elsamex claims that once finished, the road will last no less than five years. They will be paid 1 crore for the project and the work will commence from July 15, 2018.
Micro-surfacing is more well known outside India however is conveyed to Bangalore Region after fruitful preliminaries in Chennai, Hyderabad and Chandigarh. Hyderabad micro-surfaced its outer ring road earlier this year ahead of the Global Entrepreneurship Summit.
Congested driving conditions, pothole-ridden roads and non-working signs are generally the issues for a normal man in Bengaluru, while the city organization has always seemed to be more worried about different issues this will be a good opportunity for BBMP to prove their critics wrong.
