BANGALORE: The trouble of commuters travelling to ITPL will now hopefully reduce, as the four-lane road between HAL corporate office and Kundalahalli was thrown open for public by the Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy on Friday.

He also inaugurated the left carriage way and adjoining service road along Outer Ring Road at the intersection of ORR and Banaswadi-Ramamurthynagar Road. Both the projects were executed by the Bangalore Development Authority (BDA). On the occasion, the Chief Minister also inaugurated the first phase of Railway Over Bridge, being executed by the South Western Railways at Marathahalli.

Speaking on the occasion, Kumaraswamy said that the ongoing underpass constructions including the one at Vijayanagar will be completed on time.

"Work on Outer Peripheral Ring Road will begin in next two or three months. There are already more than five international companies in race to acquire the tender," he said.

He added that the state government was dedicated to provide the best of basic infrastructure facilities to its citizens. He also lauded the efforts of civic agencies for completing projects on time.

The 5-km long road connects HAL Airport from Electronics City, Whitefield and ITPL. Due to concentration of software companies towards Whitefield and Iblur, the traffic on the road had increased manifold and as such, the capacity of the road was reduced resulting in congestion, adding more to travel time.

The stretch was taken over by the BDA from the PWD department and the work of improvements to road portion was taken at the first instance.

Widening to cater 4-lane dual carriage way including strengthening and providing side drains have been done.
