All in the name of development

NH 48 enRoute to Mangalore, originally uploaded by Santosh Mg.

They are cutting down the trees in NH 48 (Bangalore-Mangalore), to convert existing 2 lane to a 4 lane road. First it was NH 4 (Bangalore-Tumkur stretch). Now NH 48.

Sigh!!, there will be no more greenery and shade in this stretch.

    wonder why they are doing that. They could keep the trees on either side and yet make it a four lane or two lane.

    Only reason is – Money…

    The road side trees have been auctioned for more than 1.5 crores — spread over a distance of 140+ KMs
