There is an empty plot next to Mantri Mall where the Mantri Mall Metro station is coming up. There is enough space for a multi-level car park here. Once that is built, the Sampige Road stretch from Mill Corner Road junction to Sankey Tank Road junction can then be closed to vehicle traffic and open to pedestrians and cyclists only. Buses which presently use Sampige Road to reach Tumkur road, can be re-routed to use Bellary road. This would help reclaim this street for people.
What Bangalore needs today is lesser gated communities and malls and more integrated communities. Integrated communities make a city, not isolated hubs of development.
