DIRT TRACK’ AT CITY CENTRE

DIRT TRACK’ AT CITY CENTRE
The junction at Domlur flyover stinks, not just because of the overflowing sewage water but also because of potholes, giving motorists a nightmare

The junction at Domlur flyover that links Koramangala Ring Road as well as Indiranagar 100-Feet Road resembles an obstacle course for motorists. Deft manoeuvres are required of them to avoid crater-like potholes or numerous mounds of mud piles on the roadside - a result of heavy digging. This junction, which links prime localities of Bangalore, has now earned a dubious distinction for its stink on the road and overflowing sewage water.
STINK ON ROAD
This 200-metre stretch of road at the junction has drawn the ire of motorists coming from the Manipal Hospital side (from Marathalli and Whitefield). No sooner than they cross the Diamond District apartments, than they hold handkerchieves to their noses to escape the stench welcoming them.
The recent rains have left the road scarred at various spots, revealing the rough side of the otherwise smooth surface. As a result of these rough patches, vehicles pile up till Manipal Hospital, resulting in a bumper-to-bumper traffic even during off-peak hours.
BIKE RIDERS HIT
Bike riders bear the maximum brunt as the sewage water gets splashed on their clothes when buses or heavy vehicles plough through it. Even as huge trenches have been dug up on the roadside, the absence of traffic policemen makes the task of motorists more tough.
The Airport traffic police said they have asked the corporation to take up work on repairing this stretch of the road. They said they had deputed traffic SIs during mornings and evenings to ensure smooth flow of traffic.
DUMP YARD
The gaping space between the flyovers has become a dumping yard. The trucks that collect garbage seems to be unloading their stuff here as there is no one to question them.
