Drain pines are present on the Elevated Expressway, but they were blocked when the first heavy rains happened in Bangalore. Because of this blockage, water got stagnated on the Expressway on that particular day.

But the concerned authorities must have (hopefully) got the blockage cleared by now.

It's raining damn heavily here in HSR Layout! The weather is just awesome and calling me for a drive, and I will be shortly leaving for EC to pick my wife. Just hope there's no flooding on the tollway to spoil the whole sexy drive!

Just got back home after getting drenched. More than the rain, it was the fools in the opposite lane of the Mysore road flyover which got me drenched. Sheesh!

I just came back from E-city using the elevated expressway. As expected, water is stagnated in the right lane. There was severe waterlogging on the expressway in front of Bosch building in Bommanahalli. I would advise you to use the road below.

There was also a lot of waterlogging in Madivala and in some parts of Koramangala. The IT capital of India becomes an off-roading destination within half an hour of rain.

Not only IT capital, but Financial Capital and National Capital too become an off-roading destination once it rains.

I don't think that in these cities the transformation happens within half an hour of rains, as is the case in Bangalore (because of lack of proper drainage).

All these problems are nil in Old Bengaluru. Have anyone seen water logging for long in areas like Jayanagar/Basavanagudi/Malleswaram etc?!

There was knee deep water-logging below the Railway bridge near Jalsa ORR. There was a bad traffic Jam due to this. Not sure how is the condition now.
