Doctors at Victoria Hospital want road from Sirsi Circle to Victoria
Bengaluru: Doctors at Victoria Hospital urged Mayor Manjunath Reddy to construct a link road between Sirsi Circle and the hospital in order to ensure free flow of traffic for ambulances. They stressed that the ambulances were often caught in the gridlock near K.R Market, often resulting in delay in treatment.
The Mayor, who visited the Sirsi Circle flyover on Saturday, inspected the flyover and discussed the feasibility of the project with BBMP engineers. Later, he assured the doctors that the proposal would soon be discussed with the state government. Dog bite: BBMPto foot bill
The Mayor also visited KIMS Hospital and enquired about the condition of six-year-old Ramya, who was undergoing treatment for dog bites. She was mauled by a pack of 15 dogs on Thursday afternoon.
Reddy assured Ramya’s family members that BBMP would bear the cost of the child’s treatment. He also informed the family that BBMP would consider providing her free education. The mayor said the BBMP would take strong measures to prevent such cases in future.
