All the stations will be in the areas without the flyovers. The line however will pass through the center median in between the flyovers. The pillar height will be higher than the height of the flyovers to provide sufficient space to run the two lines. But construction might be a challenge since the space between the flyovers will be tight.

The biggest nightmare hasn't begun yet. A total of four metro tracks and a station will have to be constructed in Tin Factory Junction. Wonder how they are going to achieve it.

Mod Note: Please stick to the topic. There are some off-topic posts on the last page.
This is a 'Bangalore Traffic' thread, not 'Bangalore' thread. Thanks!

I don't know about other north Bangaloreans but we had a torrid time throughout the entire Hebbal - Devanahalli - Dodballabpur triangle. Even now (2130) when I returned from CBD, there are areas in complete paralysis due to the sheer number of buses and people trying to leave the venue.

The cops are trying to manage but they are not able to cope. Also noted stampede type scenes at every local bar I passed. I expect things to get a lot worse before it gets better. Looking forward to tomorrow!

ORR stretch near the Yeshwanthpur flyover was having more than normal traffic yesterday evening, thanks to this 'rally' buses.
