Bengaluru steel flyover 'Beda'

The flyover, which will cost around Rs 2,000 crore, will involve uprooting 812 trees, and some heritage structures might also get ravaged. Also, environment experts say the steel bridge will increase the temperature by one or two degrees in India's coolest city, given that the material absorbs heat and releases it back in its surroundings.

People are most concerned about the environmental impact the will have. While has said it would plant 60,000 saplings to compensate for the loss of trees, environmentalists are not convinced.
