Now, follow hoardings for directions in the city
Often, we tend to forget our directions and get lost in the way. But, thanks to BBMP, they plan to put up hoardings on roadside that will double up as signboards.
The colorful hoardings generally filled with advertisements and catchy slogans will soon act as signboards in the city. This new move proposed by the traffic engineering cell of BBMP will be soon initiated. According to sources, the signboards will include arrows for direction and road safety signage across the city.
“The city with 252 kilometers of road needs more such boards. The BBMP does not have sufficient funds to put up more boards. That is the reason we are seeking help from private parties,” sources added. Depending on the requirement of that particular road, private companies will display the message.
BBMP will allot 75 per cent of the space to advertisements and the remaining space will be utilized for giving directions. The hoardings will be bilingual and displayed in both Kannada as well as English languages. BBMP officials are appealing to the people to come forward and place advertisements through small hoardings especially placed on dividers.
