Thanks for the pic. It appears that the underpass is exactly in front of the Ayyappa Temple and at the Masjid Junction. It looks like it can handle 2 vehicles together on either side in the underpass. Am curious to know how it would handle people wanting to go towards koramangala and from Kormaangala to Madivala or towards checkpost side.

I guess the underpass is meant for vehicles going straight from Silk board side to Forum side and vice versa.

Vehicles which need to turn towards Koramangala will take the normal road above and will have to wait for their turn at the traffic signal.

News from today's BangaloreMirror:
(Seven more to come in Sarjapur Jn, Marigowda Jn, Forum Mall, Adugodi Jn, Bannerghatta Cemetery Jn, Langford Jn & Vellara Jn)

Koramangala jams to end this month

No deadline worries: authorities say they can open Madiwala underpass by the end of July if work progresses at the current pace

Manasi Paresh Kumar


The underpass coming up near Kendriya Sadhan on Madiwala main road vows to accomplish what most public infrastructure projects have failed to meeting the deadline.BBMP Chief Engineer (Storm Water Drain and Major Roads) Chikkarayappa said the work had been going on at a quick pace to meet the 90-day deadline.If we succeed in maintaining the same pace,we will be able to open it by the end of July itself, he said.
For a road user,this underpass will mean easy movement on the busy stretch of Madiwala road and better connectivity of Bangalore East to Electronic city.It will also help motorists avoid a detour via Madiwala market to reach Hosur Road.The immediate advantage that the BBMP sees is that vehicles moving from HSR layout,Electronic City and J P Nagar will be able to cross the St Johns Hospital Junction in less time.
The project also introduces an engineering technique which reduces the cost and construction time by half.We are using a technique called soil nailing instead of the conventional RCC retaining wall that will line the underpass.This method allows us to just nail the soil with iron roads covered with a steel mesh and coated with concrete mix.This reduces the time taken as well, said BBMP Superintending Engineer (Major Roads) K T Nagaraj.

SEVEN MORE TO COME


This underpass is part of the Big Ten Signal-Free Corridors project mooted to replace the Inner Core Ring Road project.It is also the first of the eight underpasses that will dot the 6-km stretch between Electronic City and Vellara Junction.The other under passes will come up at Sarjapur Junction,Mari Gowda Junction,Forum Mall Junction,Adugodi Junction,Banneghatta Cemetery Junction,Langford junction and Vellara Junction, said Nagaraj.
However,it is unlikely that work on these seven underpasses will start in a year due to the difficulty in land acquisition.While the military has agreed to give us land for the project the underpass will eat into the Military School premises we are yet to give them alternative land, said Chikkarayappa.
But military land is the least of BBMPs problems.The private owners are yet to take up the option of TDR.

THE BIG PROJECT

THE BIG Ten Signal Free Corridors project was mooted after the BBMP found that Inner Core Ring Road project would not be financially viable and they would need to levy toll from commuters.The elevated Inner Core Ring Road was to run a full circle starting from Yeshwanthpur and go through Magadi Road,Binny Mill Road,Sirsi Circle,Chamarajpet,Minerva Circle,Dairy Circle,Hosur,Trinity Circle and Ulsoor before going back to Yeshwanthpur.The first phase of the signalfree corridors with multiple underpasses will include Rajajinagar to Yeshwanthpur,Old Airport road to Vellara junction,Silk Board to Vellara Junction and Mekhri Circle to Hope Farm via Jayamahal and Murphy Road.

THE UNDERPASS

COST Rs 8 cr
LENGTH 260m
WIDTH 15m
LENGTH OF PRE-CAST ELEMENT
30m

Road/bridge works in our country is like repairing an old house. Something is done at one point and then its endless. THese works are planned at a micro level and hence requirement changes/ people adopt differnt ways at the times of congestion, new road directions are created and by the time the structure is done, the entire picture would have changed if you lot at the area as a whole.


Need over all planning and good schedule

If they are going to take 2 months to finish something like this, I wouldn't mind in-convenience for those 2 months. They should take up more things in parallel and finish them off.

Any idea of the exact location? Is it just to bypass the EPIP junction?

30 to 45 days are much enough to construct a similar underpass as they are installing pre-concreted blocks. I am sure that if all the departments work together, it can be done in 2-3 weeks also.
