This is towards Silk Board or towards Hosur? Heading towards EC, hence the query

Phew !! Lucky me. I passed this place at 6:10 AM. Like you said, lots of water just before the petrol pump near silk board. I was wondering if it rained last night. Then realised it was probably a sewer pipe.

And when I joined BTM Main road from BTM Lake Road at AXA Signal, there was unusually a long queue waiting for the signal to turn green from Udupi Garden side.

So what my best understanding of the situaution is - People followed the signal rule at 6:00 AM. On other days, I see people jumping signals and just driving through irrespective of who is coming from where. But since today people stopped at the AXA Signal, it triggered off the normal jam towards Udupi Garden.

Didn't see any cop anywhere though. May be the Inner Soul of Bangalore's Motorists Woke Up today !!

There were couple of cops just before the petrol bunk at 06:30 AM, I think two bikers skid and fell and sumo had scrapped a bus. Two traffic cops were trying to resolve the argument between them.

630am

On my way to work. I am traveling on Baiyapanahalli Road to reach Isolation Hospital intersection. There is jam. A chicken truck traveling on the wrong side of old madras road, going towards MG Road has hit a Toyota Etios cab. It looked like the chicken truck was aiming for the cut in the road, at the intersection so he could get on to the correct side of the road. Small crash. I guess the Etios lost its front light and something else. I was stuck there for 5 minutes. No sign of the drivers of both vehicles. It was chaos. Traffic piled up in one direction. Wriggled my way through and got out of the mess.

A quick question: Planning to take my relatives to Nandi hills sunday morning. Can I take the new airport-bound flyover from Hebbal? Does it go all the way to airport road tollbooths?

To keep it short and simple, YES! Takes about 20-30 minutes.

Also suggest you plan to reach there before 6( or well before sunrise). We had gone a month back and reached by 6.30. Lot of traffic at the entry and it was 7.15 by the time we reached the view point. Nothing great about the view in summer once the sun is up.

Two bus break downs, one on the left most lane, and one on the right most lane in the road leading up to the Graphite India signal. I pity the commuters who come to this junction in about an hour's time.

Dear Ring Road Riders (),
there is a cement mixer truck broken down (well, it just has a punctured tyre) opposite VIMS hospital in Marathahalli. So if you are headed towards Marathahalli/Whitefield on ORR from Kadubeesanahalli side, you will have to drive through a jam.

Reached office - Prestige Tech Park, just past Kadubeesanahalli underpass - at 7:40am, and no sign of jam or even slowing traffic. It will build up by 9am I guess, if the truck is not moved.

Speaking of ORR, I have been managing the Banashankari 2nd Stage to office commute - total distance of 19.5km - in 25-30 mins. I leave home at 7am, and use my scooter. Route: Jayanagar - Dairy Circle - Forum - Sarjapur Road - ORR.

.
Passed the area at 9 am. No sign of the truck and no jams. For a change looks like it was quickly moved and/or fixed.

Great! I had posted about the truck here just for that reason. I was so sure that the truck would remain there for the whole day.

I have seen broken down trucks being left on the road for days, but not within city limits. There was a truck near Gunjur that entered a MASSIVE pothole and broke some suspension/axle. It was standing in the middle of the pothole for 3 days (yeah, middle of the pothole - the pothole was that big).
