I suppose if the ORR is decongested (particularly KR Puram-Whitefield road & hebbal-nagawara-HBR l/o), people would prefer taking ORR all the way to Hebbal, instead of traveling thru the City.

Traffic is lesser now on Airport Road(Should this be called HAL road now???)
But on a flip side, less cops are seen, if there is a pile up, action is not as prompt as it used to be before.
(This happens around Manipal signal)

HAL is still around. Only the commercial airport is closed. So they could just take out the airport from HAL airport Road.

But why would ppl from jayanagar and surrounding go to koramangala for the BIAL.

They should take the JC road-Corporation Circle- Across Cubbon park to Vidhan Soudha - Golf Course and straight NH7 to BIAL.

Yes dadu, that is the route to be taken.

My office travel time has come down to around 20 minutes from 35 minutes to go from old airport road to Ulsoor lake.

Thumbs up

All Bangaloreans should visit the airport road now. Atleast to get a sense of sheer disbelief. Airport road has just gone back 6-7 years easily !!
Now its good to drive. no cabbies either.

It puts a thought in one's mind, whether the traffic problem in Bangalore is as "unsolvable" as everyone claims. Just one airport made so much of difference.

It WILL remain unsolvable as long as the people are NOT educated on traffic sense / common sense / road design etc. No amount of Flyovers / 8 lane / 16 lane roads can solve that problem.

Idiotic Drivers and Idiotic Road Designers can create traffic jams with even 8 or 16 lane roads!!

Sorry for being so pessimistic. Can't help it.

I am not too sure how many roads got better after BIAL opened, may be just a few around HAL area. What I see everyday is bangalore north side. Bellary road, ORR (BEL circle to Nagwara area), New BEL road and even sanjaynagar roads have become tough to drive places. I used to drop my wife to a junction on New BEL road in 5 mts, now it takes 20 mts or more with the signal waiting and congestion. So ultimately its no pain no gain situation.

Well I stay in Koramangala and in My experience ORR always takes longer. BIAL - Hebbal - Mekhari Circle - Cubbon Road - MG-Road - Viveknagar - 80 Feet Road Koramangala ( 45 Kms total) route works shorter by around 10 Km and 30 mts in terms of time for me. From Sarjapur road add another 5 KM approx.

My travels were always using Meru / Easy Cab between 7 to 11 in evening for catching flights and 2 AM - 5 AM in early mornings while return. ORR route is always preferred by taxi drivers untill you ask them to take from mekhari circle. And while return if you ask them to go through city and they take a nap they tend to take longer route after windsor manor through Ulsoor lake - Murphy road - old Madras road - 100 Feet road Indranagar - IRR Koramangala
which works out same as ORR.

Early morning ? Sarjapura Road -> Hosur Road -> GPO -> Mekhri Circle -> Hebbal -> Airport is the quickest. Even a little later, the ORR has a couple of bottlenecks at Bellandur, OMR before the office traffic reduces.

In my experience, unless you have lots of luggage, go to Koramangala 1st block and take BIAS-7 - those guys are quick At 7am or ealier, they take 1:15 tops.
