The long wait for motorists at the busy Nayanadahalli junction many soon end as civic agencies are planning to construct a grade separator or flyover there.
Apart from reducing their travel time, the facility would also improve road safety in the area. As vehicles will be using the elevated rotary, traffic flow will ease on the Outer Ring Road (ORR).
The Bangalore Development Authority (BDA) has mooted the proposal in coordination with the Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) and the Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Limited (BMRCL). Joint meetings with the heads of various civic agencies have been held and a detailed plan report is being prepared, BDA commissioner Siddhaiah said.
"The concept plan has been cleared and all factors are being incorporated to ease traffic congestion on the ORR stretch," he said.
If the grade separator is opened, the Metro rail will run parallel to the ORR. The junction is always dug up for one reason or other. But once the grade separator is constructed, no further digging will take place.
Tenders will be called after the design and project report are cleared. Preparation of the detailed project report will take about three months.
The grade separator will be constructed at the intersection of the ORR from Magadi Road-Mysore Road junction which joins the existing Padmanabhanagar T-junction with Mysore Road.
Commuters are stranded for long at this junction which leads to Rajarajeshwari Nagar, Banashankari, PSET college, Mysore Road, Kengeri, and Chikka Kalasandra.
Once the grade separator is commissioned, the first level linking road will be for the ORR traffic and the second level road will be for traffic from Mysore Road. In the meantime, BDA called for fresh tenders for the construction of flyovers at Mahadevapura and Kadabeesanahalli. The estimated cost of constructing the flyovers is Rs70 crore. These flyovers are a part of their proposal to ensure seamless connectivity on ORR. The ground work will start in two months and will be completed in 18 months from the date of laying the foundation stone, Siddhaiah said.
