Basic infrastructure needs to be developed for core Bengaluru including seven erstwhile CMC areas of the city, 110 villages by providing mutual linkages and coordinated development. The Master Plan is being drawn up with an ambitious determination to ensure a uniform level of infrastructure and amenities for all the areas.”
Referring to the massive growth of Bengaluru’s Mahadevapura and the development of infrastructure in the area, Bommai said, “from software to enterprises of all sectors and housing complexes, Mahadevarapura has it all. Various civic works including Cauvery 4th phase and UGD are going on in the area. Mahadevapura is set to become the best area in Bengaluru in the coming days.”
“The new multi-speciality hospital would bring a new era of good health services in the Northeastern part of the city. It would be on par with the Bowring, Victoria and KC General hospitals. It is being planned to link the elevated road to Varthur road,” he added.
