Huge traffic jam on the ORR from Thanisandra to Kalayan Nagar(approx 5km) due to the multiple diversions from ORR to service road for White topping. Last evening I spent 1 hour to cross 2kms.
Worst part is the service roads and the entrance to them was not even repaired before starting this work

Now I got the reason why Marathahalli - Bellandur section of the ORR was relatively free this morning

"White top Bhagya" in progress near Hennur / Kalyan nagar. For those commuting from Hebbal towards K R Puram, the next few days (weeks) will be harrowing. Took 1 hour 30 minutes for me on two wheeler today for 13 kms.

I saw it live from the other side while going for some work from Ramamurthy Nagar - Kalyan Nagar. The Rammamurthy Nagar railway bridge was empty That set the bell ringing in mind - for starters it's not empty even at 10pm on Sunday evening. As a consequence while going back to office to Whitefield, I took the inner roads in Kalyan Nagar to end up at Horamavu underpass on ORR and than it was a zip via KR Puram and Phoenix (even with Metro construction). Just wondering how much traffic is being carried over by ORR every minute. Anyways white topping during broad day light when such heavy influx of traffic is expected can only be thought by BBMP contractors. It was mayhem on the other side.

Today's Indian Express, Bangalore carried this picture and caption - 27k cases filed already for the front (sticker) number plate - Link

Some scooters do not come with the provision for front number plates, so holes will have to be drilled, I don't think there is any other way out!

Just experienced it now while returning from Manyatha Tech park. Took me around one hour for about three kilometres on a bike! Had seen this from the other side while going to office in the morning and was wondering what has happened.

Stopped the bike and had a chat with a couple of traffic inspectors and they said the dreaded words. This could take about a month.

I normally love the ORR for my commute from Jakkur to Indiranagar but lately I've just been leaving earlier and going through the city to avoid this white topping business.

I'm lately seeing a massive traffic increase in the Jakkur / Thanisandra / Hennur / Bagalur belt. Must be due to a combination of effects of white topping on ORR and the Manyata entrance/exit fiasco.

While these smaller roads can cope for now, they will be overwhelmed in 4/5 years maximum!

Yesterday and today was a breeze crossing through Tin Factory though I left my house late by half an hour and still managed to reach office with the same time duration thanks to the stupid idea of white topping. My sympathies for those coming from Hebbal side.

Imagine the impact if we had a road parallel to the current ORR, where some of its traffic would have been diverted to that. PRR has been there so far only on the newspaper headlines and real estate brochures.

Traffic standstill from Nagavara to Horamavu.
Please watch the youtube video.Traffic caused not due to rains or metro work but due to whitetopping

I decided to take the Tannery road - Pottery road - MM Road - Campbell road - Byappanahalli road - Swami Vivekananda road route to reach my office today. Took me just 35 minutes compared to 1.5 hours yesterday on my two wheeler.

Though this route is 2 kms lesser than travelling by the ring road, I had never used it till now for the sole reason that I had to go through the Tannery road traffic. Alas I have no option now

That is an unbelievable scene! When will they reach their destinations??
This is even lengthier that what I saw yesterday evening.
If anything the BBMP lacks, it is common sense. Bangalore's traffic is way over the limit of what the roads can handle as it is and the last thing it needs is any kind of disruption.
