Bengalureans protest against axing of trees for Koramangala elevated corridor

Koramangala road, on which elevated corridor will come up, has one of the largest green covers and lung spaces in Bengaluru

BENGALURU:

Namma Bengaluru Foundation, in association with NGOs, RWAs, residents, citizen volunteers and activists, protested against the decision to fell 67 trees for the Elevated Corridor Project in Koramangala. Around 60 ‘tree warriors’ of various ages, dressed in black and green, assembled at the Koramangala 100 Feet Road on Saturday morning, holding placards and shouting slogans to save the targeted trees.

According to the protest organisers, since the project is of an elevated nature, the trees obstructing the elevated corridor should be trimmed and pruned but not felled.

According to the activists, the road on which the elevated corridor is coming up is the only road in Koramangala which has a canopy of old and large trees, providing one of the largest lung spaces in the city.
