Oh no, mostly likely to be on side towards agara. I can see huge pile up of vehicles waiting to exit ecospace.

Yesterday was an another bad day, a cement truck broke down at the foot of the bellandhur flyover, there was jam even at 9PM, took me around 30 minutes to exit ecospace.

Was it me or anyone else had a harrowing time today from Hoodi to Graphite India this morning. Took me a good 50 minutes :( Wonder what was the problem.

So created a new record: 2.5 hours for approx 16 kms from Shantinagar to Graphite India.

Has it been removed now or not? Yesterday i started from office in ecospace at 5PM, came out of ecospace campus at 745PM, reached home at 830PM(Indira nagar). Its a new record, 3.5hrs for 14kms . I might as well have driven to Chennai in little over 4hrs

Today, while taking a left turn at a T point, i was in the left most lane and was monitoring the oncoming traffic. As soon as the traffic density decreased and i started to move, a honda activa crashed into my front bumper. The reckless honda guy had cut early and was driving in the wrong lane to avoid a legal U-turn. Was so furious at the guy, that i wanted to run him over for damaging my car and risking the lives of other road users. Parked my car in a parking zone, got down and gave him my piece of mind.

Are you talking about the cement truck that was stranded on the bellandur flyover on Monday evening. There was massive traffic jam.

This cement mixer has been cleared, I think. Was coming from Agara towards Marathahalli in the afternoon, passed EcoSpace at 2:15pm, the truck was parked in front of that mound of mud that blocks off the entrance to the closed service road on the extreme right side (thus creating a bit of a dead zone in the road).

If it is the same truck, then it won't be causing issues this evening.
