M Lokesh to helm Rs 1,600-crore roads project in Bengaluru

BBMP's Engineer M Lokesh is now holding additional charge of Project-Central as chief engineer

Predecessor N Ramesh shifted as in-charge of Bengaluru’s OFC project


In a reshuffle of civic engineers, BBMP Chief Commissioner Gaurav Gupta has removed Chief Engineer N Ramesh from the post of Chief Engineer (Projects-Central) and appointed M Lokesh with additional responsibility, with immediate effect on Wednesday.

Lokesh is now responsible for the Rs 1,600-crore infrastructure project in Bengaluru, which includes white topping, TenderSure projects, the Sony Junction (Koramangala) elevated corridor, the Shivananda Circle flyover, the Okalipuram 8-lane corridor, signal-free corridors of Outer Ring Road (ORR) and Old Airport Road, and the 20 metre-wide corridor on Madiwala lake connecting BTM Layout to Hosur Road. Maintaining quality construction of these projects will be the biggest task before Lokesh.

Ramesh has been asked to take charge of the Bengaluru Optical Fibre Cable project, while Lokesh, who has been working in Projects-Central in the capacity of Superintendent Engineer, has been elevated to the Chief Engineer’s post with additional responsibility.

In another order, Gupta has relieved Narasaram Rao from the additional responsibility of the post of Optical Fibre Cable Chief Engineer, and assigned him to South zone in the capacity of Superintendent Engineer.
