We too shelled out Rs 20/- on Saturday at Spar, and unlike quite a few other such supermarket parking lots these charges are not refunded/adjusted against your bill here. At least that should be the case if the idea is to forbid free-loaders.

This may sound cheap. But as we are talking about parking charges, I discovered the below or rather did on purpose

You can avoid parking fees in Lifestyle, Begumpet by parking in the OHRIs Jiva/De Thali behind White House building. You have to go till the end. 3 reasons I do it.

1) No parking charge.
2) Safer, because it is open and OHRIs have attendants to keep lurkers at bay.
3) Lifestyle cellar parking has very less or no light at all.
4) You get to walk till lifestyle. Work out... No?

However, do not pull this stunt at shady places/malls.

While returning from Mody Ford at Gunrock Enc today, I found the road from Diamond Point to Bantia Gardens closed for repair, forcing me to go straight towards Bapuji Nagar and then turn left towards Tadbund.

Luckily it was at 430 pm. I can imagine the torture after 6 pm on that stretch!!

Got a chance to use this entry point to ORR from Waverock. I was a little confused about which side of the ORR flyover I should enter from, as there is one to the right side of the road before the flyover, and two after passing under the flyover, one on either side.

After enquiry, I found out that I need to take the one before the flyover that is on the right side , giving an impression that we are going against the flow of traffic. So to rephrase Nikhil's words, the exit ramp of the ORR from Patancheru to Financial district has been bifurcated at the center, where the left part takes us towards Gachibowli, while the right part is a normal exit from the ORR. The only dicey part is taking a U turn on reaching the ORR, where one needs to watch out for speeding vehicles.

I stay close to Shanker Mutt - opposite the road connecting Shanker Mutt & Shivam, close to the rail underbridge. Off late, traffic on this particular stretch had become unbearable - traffic coming in from the Barkathpura side headed towards No: 6 junction, was unable to take a right turn near the Fever Hospital and had to continue straight towards Nallakunta, take any of the bye lanes, and join Shivam again.

Add to this, is the congestion near Shanker Mutt, on account of the large influx of devotees intending to have a darshan of the visiting pontiff from Sringeri.

But now, there has been a 1 way enforced in the evenings, on this road, and things have started coming back to normalcy, which has proven to be a big relief!

I commute daily from Shanker Mutt to Mindspace and take the old Bombay route via Mehdipatnam, L-Pul. It works out to 20 Kms each way, and am able to make it in about an hour in peak traffic conditions. Am finding this route to be better than the conventional route via Road No: 36, Taj Krishna and Khairatabad Cross Roads.

Not an update exactly but just a small piece of information for all the other readers and ORR users.

The Exit/Entry points for the part of ORR that I use are as following:

This is from Patancheru (Muthangi) side towards Medchal.

Exit Point 3: Patancheru/Mumbai

Exit Point 4: I.D.A Bollaram/Sulthanpur

Exit Point 5: Medak Road/Balanagar

Exit Point 6: Medchal/Nagpur


Cheers,
Anurag.

Given the fact that both approaches to Bowenpally are not recommended, I guess one should go in a chopper !

The other option from Panjagutta is via Dharam Karan road and Balanagar, which is also darned messy. So that leaves us with only one option which is via Paradise flyover, Lamba theatre and Picket.

That gunrock road is closed from a few weeks now. A friend who lives in Sikh village posted on HTP long back asking only people living in that area to take that route

Talk about vested interests

Please stop using this internal road as it is very disturbing to my uncle who lives next to Asian Paints Colony.

Bajaj Sahb.

Let both our uncles talk and sort this out.

BTW-My uncle is a retired Lieutenant general and his last posting was general officer commanding-in-chief (GOC-in-C) of southern command.

Waseem.
