Flyover ready ... for trial
The Times of India

Bangalore: After setting deadlines after deadlines, the Airport Road flyover is finally ready. And the first vehicle to ply on the brand new flyover will be that of BDA commissioner M K Shankarlinge Gowda’s.

From Friday onwards, the BDA will conduct trial rounds and stress test for a week after which the flyover will be inaugurated by chief minister D Kumaraswamy.

Says the BDA chief: “I will be the first one to drive on the flyover. We will hold stress test for a week to ascertain the load the flyover can take. The flyover will be inaugurated well before July 15.’’

The Airport Road-Intermediate Ring Road (IRR) flyover is an interchange — no signals, and commuters can take easy left and right turns. For six years, commuters on the stretch had to face traffic jams due to the construction.
Deadlines galore

Work started in February 2003. Initial deadline April 2004; revised deadline: March 2005. Fresh deadline: June 2005. Latest July 15, 2006.
