BANGALORE: Pedestrians and drivers, who have been complaining about traffic chaos on the MG Road due to Namma Metro work, may soon get respite.

The Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Limited (BMRCL) is planning to reduce barricading on this busy road in phases.

Launching girders on MG Road will start in September. After girders are placed, only a minimum barricading of three metres on the road will be required. The work of placing girders from Trinity Circle to Cauvery Junction and Anil Kumble Circle will be completed between May 2009 and July 2009.

"Simultaneous work in all the sections of the project will be taken up from October this year," BMRCL Managing Director N Sivasailam told reporters on Saturday. Work on the CMH Road would also be completed on schedule, he added. Namma Metro has already achieved 38 out of the total 151 milestones set for the project while the other 37 are under progress.

Sivasailam also detailed about the expected date of completion of each section and different reaches of the Metro rail project. The project would be completed on schedule, he added.
