‘Construct sky walks’

The traffic problem has aggravated in Bangalore due to one ways. Brigade Road, the only direct road that connects North and Central Bangalore, leading to the south, is in utter chaos. The congestion near Mayo Hall, Richmond Road and residency Road show how one-way system can create traffic jams. Every time we drive on St Mark's Road, we find ourselves in the wrong direction! People ignore the law and cut in and out of one ways - most have no choice as there are no alternative roads when one ways are introduced and important roads are closed. Commercial Street has to be a traffic free zone as there are no footpaths and shoppers have to walk on the road.

Lane discipline

Lane discipline cannot be fully enforced in Bangalore due to small roads and mixed vehicular traffic. This makes drivers to sometimes squeeze into narrow gaps between two lanes, thereby disrupting smooth movement.

I would suggest that a separate lane wide enough to allow two wheelers and small enough to prevent entry of autos be constructed on all roads.

Skywalks can be constructed just above the two wheeler lanes. Optionally, it should not be too difficult to construct underground parking just below the two-wheeler lane.
