LANE DISCIPLINE COULD HAVE PREVENTED THIS

LANE DISCIPLINE COULD HAVE PREVENTED THIS
Police Commissioner Shankar Bidari, in a live chat with Bangalore Mirror readers, said major roads that are being widened will soon be made two-way to instill more lane discipline


Bangalore city Police C o m m i s s i o n e r Shankar Bidari said that once Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) completed widening of major junctions, police are ready to implement two-way traffic. Speaking to Bangalore Mirror readers in an exclusive chat as part of ‘Jamaluru’ campaign, Bidari said, “We know that oneways create lot of problems. Uni-directional traffic is only a temporary solution. Hence, we are already taking measures to make it two-way on Palace road, Seshadri road, Sarjapur road and Race course road. Some of the major road projects in the pipeline are Bellary road, Hosur road, Hosur-Lashkar road, Nrupatunga road, Palace road and Seshadri road.”
TWO-WAYS IN 20 DAYS
The traffic police are set to make many one-ways bi-directional in 20 days. As Electronics city elevated highway is set for inauguration in December first week, Hosur road will become a two-way. Currently, vehicles from MG Road moving towards Central Silk Board have to take a compulsory left turn at St John’s junction. The situation is so bad that even for a U-turn motorists have to drive a few extra kilometres. However, once Hosur road is made twoway, you can head directly towards Central Silk Board.
