BANGALORE: After a delay of two years, the grade separator at MICO Layout near Jayadeva Institute of Cardiology is complete and will be open to the public on Monday.

Bangalore Development Authority launched the work on the flyover and the grade separator in February 2003.

The civil work was handed over to the Uttar Pradesh State Bridges Corporation. But litigation between the BDA and the contractor delayed the completion of the project.

The three-level grade separator will help ease traffic in the area. The estimated peak hour traffic in the area is 12,525 vehicles. BDA estimates that when the grade separator is inaugurated, 54 per cent of the traffic will be diverted into it.

The Jayadeva flyover and underpass project comprises a three lane unidirectional flyover towards Madiwala with two lane arms each from Banashankari side and Bannerghatta Road side.

It has a four-arm intersection, in which two arms form part of the Outer Ring Road.
