“The police must ensure that the underpasses are made operational only after all the signages and other facilities are in place.

Otherwise driving at night may be difficult.”

In a major respite for motorists and residents of south Bengaluru, a single stretch between South End Circle and Rajalakshmi Bus Stop joining Nanda Road, will be opened to traffic in the next two days.
Traffic was banned on the road for almost 12 months to complete ongoing work . With the work now complete, vehi- cles can now ply on one side. “We are allowing vehicles in one lane to min- imise traffic conges- tion,” said a traffic officer.

The traffic police Aug. 12: The traffic police has thrown open a lane of the Madiwala underpass, helping commuters cut down on travel time and fuel cost.
While the lane which connects Hosur Road to the Service Junction near St Johns Hospital was thrown open to traffic five days ago , the other lane of the underpass is likely to open in the next 10 days. The underpass, which is being built in record time, is expected to make a huge difference to busy Hosur Road, which sees heavy traffic most days.

“Once the underpass is ready is it will serve as much needed parking space for vehicles as well.

Traffic light poles and streetlights will be erected soon,” says additional commissioner of police (traffic) Pravin Sood, adding that both the Iblur and Agara underpasses too

will be ready in the next two months to improve traffic conditions in the city.
Traffic experts however warn against hurried opening of underpasses without installation of sign boards, speedbreakers and median.

“The police must ensure that the underpasses are made operational only after all the signages and other facilities are in place. Otherwise driving at night may be difficult through them,” says one expert.
