+1. Just Ecospace and around, following are the things we can expect (from what I have read and heard)
  • Still a few buildings in progress in the Ecospace/Pritech Campus and the ones next to it.
  • RMZ Ecoworld is just half done. Several buildings in progress. Space for more beyond Adarsh Apartments. I read that Shell has signed on for a 6000 people campus.
  • Adarsh Apartments. Several towers in progress, at least 1000+ apartments. There is also an extension-Adarsh Lake Front, that has been launched.
  • Adarsh is developing a Hotel (was supposed to be Shangri La) inside the Ecoworld campus.
  • Folks would have already noticed the new Marriot Courtyard and Fairfield that has opened between Intel and Ecospace.
  • Huge tech park next to Decathlon on Sarjapur Road. May seem far at first glance. But if you exit from behind Ecoworld/Adarsh and take a right, it lands up at Sarjapur Road close to this new Tech Park. Expect a huge spurt in vehicles using the back roads to get on to ORR (Considering that Sarjapur Road is already a big mess)
  • Large number of new apartment complexes further down Sarjapur Road. Lot of the traffic from there is going to hit ORR via Ecoworld or Panathur.

The whole stretch infront of ITPL is a trench with craters, and some road surface peaking out :-(

Totally absent administration in Whitefield!
Took 1 hour 25 minutes to cover 1 km from KTPO to Big Bazaar at 5:00 pm today. Total 4 kms from office to home took 2 hours. Could have walked in 40 mins. Unfortunately that is also not possible due to lack of footpath, slush and water every where and risk of being run over by vehicles

Thanks to the superb roads around Whitefield, we have streams, deep potholes, stagnant water patches, dug up roads, everything that can help make it disastrous in such weather. Luckily most motorists seemed to be driving sanely not taking any risks with crazy maneuvers.
I saw this massive massive traffic jam extending from my office in Mahadevapura till Hoodi junction while driving happily on the other side with absolutely nil traffic , It looked really bad. There was some work going on as well I think opposite at the ABB junction. The road from ABB to Hoodi is worst of the worst roads. Who will say this road connects to the industrial hubs of Bangalore. Looks like a village road.

Was stuck in the epip area for a good 3 hours. Left my office at 6:30pm at total mall, doddanekundi and reached home in Whitefield at 9:30. I have never seen traffic this bad in my last 10 years living in bangalore. Three hours for 8km is beyond retarded.

Today I left office at 430 and it took 15mins just to reach the main road 400m away near PSN gate. From there it took another 15mins to cross Zuri. Just pathetic state of the road. From there since it had already been 5PM, had trouble inside the city and reached home two hours later. By far the worst commute, worse than during last week rains.

I still see ITPL area being dark red and most of my colleagues who left work after 6 havent reached home yet. Was not able to understand how things could be so worse.

The usual alpine eco route. From the graphite signal to Hope Farm was completely jammed.

I went from my office to Hoodi at around 4:45 in less than 10 minutes. Possibly there was traffic after that. May be using the graphite signal -> abb -> hoodi -> Hope farm would have been better a option for you

My commute home today:

Distance 12km
Time taken 26 minutes


Ah! Now I get it! I didn't go anywhere near Whitefield!! My commute is now BSK 2nd Stage to Bommanahalli.

Roads at 11pm were totally empty. Everyone staying at home I guess?

Huge relief reading this. Today, I took 30 minutes from my office (PSN) to hoodi and 26 minutes from hoodi to home (Singasandra) - started by 9.30 and was home by 10.30.

A worthy addition to the "mad junction" club would be the sarjapur rd - haralur rd junction (opp big bazar store) - truly lunar. Even 2 wheelers can't find a narrow strip of tarmac to snake through. Also, this junction experiences "peak traffic" situation between 12 noon to 4 pm and sparse traffic between 11 pm and 7 am. To describe the traffic at other times, especially times which are considered "peak hours" by the rest of the world; would require many beeps. Plus we have cement trucks (to and from the cement plant on haralur road) pounding the surface into submission. If you have to experience the black gates of mordor in real life, this is the place to be.

Folks: A MAJOR TRAFFIC ALERT

A Toyota Etios car rear ended a tata indica close to Ravindu Toyota showroom on ORR. Looks like both the cars suffered considerable damage.
Hopefully there is no traffic jam but you never know
