A bench of Justices R F Nariman and Surya Kant also allowed Ministry of Road Transport and Highway, along with the Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change to file its response in the matter. The top court on August 7
directed that the ban on night traffic would continue to operate.
 
The Supreme Court on Friday gave additional four weeks time to the Centre to respond to its suggestion for developing an alternative route as the national highway in order to ensure that the roads passing through the Bandipur Tiger Reserve are shut permanently.

Commentary

The saga of the road through the Bandipur Tiger Reserve continues as the Supreme Court gave 4 additional weeks to create an alternative road.

How easy can it be: no roads through tiger habitat (protected or not).
