Hosa road signal ( Hosur road ) has a long queue in both the sides- this was about 20 minutes back.

My office is on the Total Mall/EMC junction (Sigh!) I can see through the window the traffic from Marathahalli to KR-Puram side is relatively normal at this point in time. BTP might have cleared the bus or the Jam might be much before the railway overbridge and the traffic is trickling down after the jam.

Tell me about it, I stay right next to the signal and always check with the family before I head out from work how the traffic is at that place so that I can plan accordingly. That signal has become a big mess and I do not know when they would build the flyover, which when it is started, is going to be one more mess.

The two traffic men who man the junction, deserve a special praise for the way they manage it. But for them, it would be more crazier.

My wife had reached Kadubeesanahally at 5.45pm, and then SpiceGarden at 8pm (hardly 4km)

Traffic Jam continues beyond ISRO Turn towards KR Puram.

Had a relatively traffic free commute from office. The stretch between Prestige Shantiniketan and K.R.Puram via Hoodi took only 20 minutes. Mind you, it usually takes upwards of an hour to cross this stretch on normal days. Reached home 30 mins sooner than usual.

Looks like "The jam" isn't dispersing. And there seems to be another accident.

Had a horrible time today. Commuting from electronic city towards whitefield around 10 in the night. The traffic was moving inch by inch from eco space till Isro site. I will never take this route again, I'll go via varthur.

Took me 30 minutes to travel between JP Morgan signal to innovative multiplex. Saw 3 BMTC volvos enroute stranded. One before the marthalli under pass another after it near kalamandir and another at isro. Was a crazy day. Should have stayed at home.

I agree. A few of us in office were thinking of giving a small gift like a good branded pair polarized sunglasses for those poor souls. I think its one of the most unforgiving junction that BTP has to man on the whole ORR right now.

Default Rants on Bangalore's traffic situation

There is a broken down bus opposite to Brigade Metropolis, just before Hoodi junction. The traffic build up caused because of this is stretching till K.R.Puram

Edit: Traffic police are at the location and are trying to move the bus.

Was a witness of the Huge traffic Jam at ORR yesterday evening. Partially lucky, since I was in BMTC Volvo.
Left my car for some body work in Trend in Hosur Road and was heading home.
Took the 500 series bus toward ITPL. Boarded the Bus at 06:25 PM at Silk Board.
At 06:45PM we were in flyover opposite to Passport Office. The Jam started from there. Was able to see that the traffic was piled up even beyond the U turn opposite to ISRO

By the time the bus took the U Turn towards Marathahalli it was 08:10 PM. Reached home by 08:30 PM.
One of the worst days again.

Once when travelling on 500C volvo, took a peek at the drivers console when I was about to get down. Saw "Caution, Brakes failed" message. Couldnt click a pic of this as I was about to get down. Thankfully, the bus stopped fine. So, are such messages to be ignored???
