The Gyan Bharati main road in south Bengaluru was asphalt at a cost of Rs 6 crore.

The civic body covered a distance of about 3.6 kilometers in the area under the Bengaluru University campus.

Modi used the road to visit the Dr BR Ambedkar School of Economics (Base) University on Monday.

The road collapsed just a few meters from the Base University campus on Tuesday after overnight rain.

“Road users had complained several times and nothing was done. In fact, nearby institutions had filled the pit and when it did not help, a barricade was put up to protect the motorists from falling. This is happening for the second time. They did asphaltization on the road in April, when Modi’s visit was planned and later cancelled. The road was razed even then,” says Ananth Subramaniam, a road user who frequently uses the stretch.

BBMP engineers suspect that a leaking water or sewage pipeline beneath the surface resulted in the cavern.

The BBMP had justified the emergency actions taken for the PM’s visit.

BBMP special commissioner Ravindra PN had said on Tuesday, “The workers have worked day and night to complete the work within a week as the protocol requires.”
