Water logging under the railway bridge near doddanekkundi in ORR. Only one lane seems to be moving. Expect backups and delays.

The junction below Bommasandra flyover is a mess of sorts.
After the recent median construction on the service roads, people are slowly getting used to it and traffic holdups were reducing day by day.
But now the roads have got worse and there are huge craters, the size of which which an easily hold a M800 or Nano inside them
These craters (potholes) have resulted in people doing all sorts of circus to avoid them and hence again creating traffic jams.

Just came through that. Not only is Maratahalli traffic choked but so it the KRPURAM side. The KRPuram bound traffic is getting blockaded due to multiple vehicles going left from the rightmost lane. They get caught in the gauntlet at the wicked S at Doddanekundi where they come from the left to the right and cannot change lanes on the gradient.

Absence of buses has forced many people to bring out their vehicles. However there are lots of errant drivers owing to them not being aware of the various things to be done to move quickly out of the ORR and other areas which choke up regularly. So in all the bus strike has not made life smoother at all. Unfortunate but then no one is to blame here.

I was lucky today morning @ 8 am as cops had stopped traffic from EMC2 side at rainbow hospital and I was able to take the U and get onto the service lane.

Agree. Saw a lot of "L" board small cars on the road today and traffic density from MG road onward was lot higher than normal.

Edit: Avoid ORR or work from home today as the entire stretch is burning red!

Took 45 minutes to cross the Doddanekundi underpass. The traffic towards Marathahalli was piled up till MORE flyover. I was cursing the BMTC strike for causing this until I reached the spot and realized that the culprit is the same old reason-

And right after that it was a breeze along-

Have we not still found a solution for this water logging issue?

Nothing can be done about that underpass. It's the lowest spot in the whole area, and there's no major storm-water drainage system nearby it can be emptied into. Engineering design must be an alien concept to our civic authorities.

How about if buses, TTs keep to extreme left, cars in middle lane and two wheelers take the right most lane? Wouldn't traffic move faster?

Left home at around 0930Hrs and was at Whitefield by around 1030Hrs. Today at that time, I did see a mark reduction of vehicles on the road. It was pretty much a smooth sail all along the route. Don't know if more people decided to stay indoors today. The schools have a holiday today as well.

I avoided Doddanekundi underpass today and took Marathalli signal to ITPL coming from Yemalur. And made it to office in 35 minutes.

Phew!! was at the flyover near MORE (before EMC signal) at 8:30am. Reached the S before the EMC signal at 11:30. Luckily was able to take a U Turn and head back home.
What a day!

I guess you recently watched Irfan khan starrer Maadari. Well if our system works that way then there would not be any flaws in any public works. One can only lament for the current state of affairs.
