For the return journey, you can make use of the Arakkonam Passenger. This comes to Whitefield station by 5 45 PM. Even this passenger train is pretty crowded as I have seen many IT folks using this train . It reaches city station by 6 50 PM

Planning to take the 4.30 PM Bangarpet - Ramnagara DMU as I usually get out of office early and need to be home before 6 for calls with US folks.

Another VVIP in Bangalore tomorrow. Looks like North & CBD traffic will be affected

Which Taj Vivanta would be this? The one at ITPL? Or are there any other Taj Vivanta's in the city?

This must be the one on MG Road, I don't think they will dare get VVIPs to ITPL area on a weekday. The VVIPs may 'get lost' in the sea of vehicles there

I think this the Theresa May, UK's Prime Minister. She was supposed to visit Bangalore on 8th November.

More reason why they want to isolate airport to CBD travel with a steel flyover. They can then forget about everything else in the City.

Given that it is between visits to Peenya and Ulsoor, could be either the one in Yeshwantpur or at Trinity.

Any idea what work is going on on ORR after the Hebbal signal (point where traffic from airport merges into ORR) when going from BEL circle to Nagawara? This has started causing mini jams even at 8AM.

It's the expansion work to create a ramp from ORR Nagawara side to Airport.

Bangaloreans,

Avoid Hosur Road, an Accident has occurred Near Confident Propus. I am sure it will be nightmare to even move ahead now. Please Take alternative roads, especially people coming from Brigade Road & Campbell Road. Avoid Langford Road also.

Those Proceeding towards Southern Suburbs (BTM, Jayanagar, Koramangala) please take Richmond Circle - Lalbagh - NIMHANS Route.

Oh. I thought they were finally working on eliminating the signal at Hebbal.

Anyway, that's too much to expect from the current govt. which considers building a footbridge a great achievement

Truck breakdown (tyres are off) towards Marathalli, opposite to New Horizon College on ORR. Right lane usable for buses, cars. Only small gap on left.

If someone wants to make their presence felt in google, this is the easiest way IMO. Just break down on ORR, and you will make a mark on Google maps

Ladies and Gentlemen, here is the truck:

Came via a free flowing KR Pura to work. Not sure if its the effect of the US elections, traffic was light there at 720AM which hasnt been the case from almost a month.
