A lot of trial and error methods being practiced I suppose.
It has been enabled since Friday with cops stopping the traffic bound towards Sarjapur. I seriously question the logic the cops use to solve problems. As it is they are grappling with poor infrastructure and little support from BBMP / BDA to improve the infrastructure.

I seriously hope that the PM and the German Chancellor have something to say about the traffic in Bangalore.

Don't call it a road any more. see the stretch between ORR (prestige techpark) and Yamlur. I don't know how long this road is like this and will be like this . The reason for the road in such a condition can be attributed to heavy vehicles and landfill being done on both the side. Hoping BBMP will do some thing to make it look like a road.

Monday (today): Merkel will make her way from Kempegowda International Airport to the Taj West End on Monday, passing by the CM's residence.

Tuesday (tomorrow):
PM will arrive at 9 am at HAL and head towards Bosch Adugodi,
Merkel will leave Taj West End for Bosch Adugodi ad and Shoolay Circle to reach Bosch factory in Adugodi.
Next, both will participate in the Indo-German Summit 'Digitizing Tomorrow', organized by Fraunhofer, India and Nasscom at Hotel Leela Palace between 11.30 am and 2.30 pm.
Next, Merkel will leave for Germany on Tuesday afternoon while Modi will leave for New Delhi on the same day.

Assuming they will leave separately from KIAL & HAL this means most of BLR will be tied up tomorrow.
The new Bosch facility is at Bidadi and I thought it will be inaugurated ! Funny that her aircraft developed a snag and she had to travel in a cargo plane German Engineering !

Cha, how I wish Merkel had to travel from Koramangala to Electronic city. At least they would have repaved the Madiwala market stretch. Perhaps she should stay in Bangalore for a month, visit all the areas.

Big jam right from marathahalli on ORR towards belandur. Moving very slowly. Not sure why. Luckily am in a Volvo. Expect it to quickly build up towards kundanahalli and kr puram side.

Update : traffic clears up at Intel flyover - no idea why such a choke up from vehicles taking left to the service road at the start of this flyover :banghead:
Until this point I think there will be traffic buildup from Marathahalli

Whenever it rains, the traffic chokes badly on the service road in front of Ecospace, just because of water logging. It was the same today, right from the morning. Cascading effect at start of Intel flyover (towards Sarjapur), below flyover and all the leading junctions). It took me 30 mins to get out of Ecoworld. Many cops are present doing whatever best they could do.

Horrible traffic right from marathahalli till bellandur. Normally i reach my home in bommanahalii by 4 30 PM. Today I reached Bellandur by 4 30 PM. Travelling even by I shift is slowly becoming a pain.

I am more unfortunate because they had to visit our company and the plan was cancelled since the review team that came a few weeks back decided that it was impossible to regulate traffic in ITPL area The plan was then moved to Bosch since its in the heart of the city and traffic management will be better for these VVIP movements.

That said, I am not sure how I should return from work tomorrow, since most of the route I take comes under the issued notification. I guess I should take an extra long route tomorrow.

I am one among the users of this infamous road everyday. Have been riding a two wheeler to work for the past 20 years. This one stretch of road has made me convert from 2-wheeler to office cab since the last 6 months.
