Bengaluru: Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) plans to create eight helipads in Bengaluru.

On Saturday, Mayor R. Sampath Raj announced a proposal to create one helipad in each of the eight BBMP zones.

He said these helipads will be helpful to the citizens. He said the amount of time taken by citizens to travel between two ends of the city, especially in cases of medical emergencies, is too long.

“If a patient has to reach a hospital in Electronics City from, say, Yelahanka, it is going to take him or her a lot of time. Similarly, if someone gets down at the international airport and has to travel to the other end, by air it will take 15 minutes. There are plenty of air ambulances and private helicopters available and they are no longer very expensive. If we provide helipads in each of the zones, people will be able to use them,” the mayor said.

The plan is to name the helipads after former mayors of the city, whom the mayor met on Saturday.
