BANGALORE: The Karnataka high court has ordered notice to both Karnataka as well as the Union government and the national highways authority of india (NHAI) in response to a petition challenging the construction of elevated road connecting Bangalore International Airport (BIA) at Devanahalli, just outside Bangalore city.

Justice A S Bopanna has asked the respondents to file their objections to the petition filed byAgni Aerosports Limited, Jakkur. The petitioners, who are a running helicopter training school have claimed that they were forced to approach the court finally as their repeated requests/requisitions with the government against the said road project since 2010 have failed to yeiled any results.

The petitioners have complained that the area comes under ‘no construction zone’ and the construction of the elevated road has been undertaken without permission and the same would affect the helicopter training activities undertaken by them. Interestingly, the construction of the elevated road project is going on briskly and almost 75% work is said to be completed.
