Default Bangalore: Madivala underpass work starts. EDIT - now complete

There you go again. Back to the old ways of longer commute times.

We have an equally pathetic situation at the ORR Bellandur junction. The Agara/Iblur flyovers are not even complete and they have already started work on the Bellandur flyover. Expecting to see big jams during the peak hours.

Add to that, the Nagvara signal work is also about to start.

Default I faced it today

I had no clue about this construction being started and suddenly I see it today.
It took long time to reach office for me and from tomorrow I will have to change my route.

I always say, " When you r driving in Bangalore, anything can happen anywhere - you just can't predict Bangalore's traffic ".

Check this :

I travel from JP Nagar - ITPL.
No. of flyover or underpass constructions :
1) Madiwala
2) Agara (2 flyovers at a time)
3) Sarjapur Junction
4) Belandur
5) Intel junction

Ufffff ! Simply not tolerable.
I wonder, what do the authorities want us to do?

I faced an unexpected traffic jam because of diversion there and lost 40 minutes when I went to drop a relative to Madiwala bus stop.

Fortunately, the buse was also late.

I am actually confused. Is it better that one is completed before the next one is started? Or are we better off sufferring it all together and when they finally open all issues get resolved? Opinions from the others?

Knowing the traffic scene, its only a matter of time before even these flyovers cant tolerate the traffic growth.

For people going to ITPL through Silk Board, it should be really bad. Is taking inner ring road over Koramangala and old airport road better in terms of time?

Going from Koramangala to E-city yesterday morning, was surprised by the sudden appearance of road-blocks at Madiwala. The evening saw a massive jam that began at the Elevated Tollway exit all the way to Koramangala. A total commute from office to home that normally takes 20-30 mins took me 1hr 20 mins yesterday . Knowing the pace of work in Bangalore, God alone knows how long we will have to suffer this

That would mean no access to fabindia which is opposite to the mosque. hope it doesnt affect business there. Will they complete the project in 3-4 months as indicated?

These time frames look good only on papers.
JP Nagar underpass (near nandhini) work is going on from years (i think 2 +) and still its not completed. I guess it would take another year to complete.
These road contractors are not commited to time frame nor qualtiy. All we can do is "adjust maadi"

The road works actually started Monday this week, they should have atleast advertised in papers so we are prepared. All these flypvers and underpass will do no good to the ever increasing Bengalooru growth. Heard on the news a couple of days back that Infosys and Wipro are adding additional campuses in Bengalooru, guess what this will do to already stretched, humped(lots of hump),dry(Water & greenery) Bangalore.

Is this a pedestrian underpass? What purpose does this underpass serve?

I thought things were somewhat okay with that section after the recent widening.

Last time I was in Blore, the agara junction looked like a disaster/war zone thanks to the flyover construction & the dust all around. Very true it is swalpa adjust madi here and there. At times it became very stressful & started eating me, that was the primary reason I relocated to Chennai after spending 5 years in Bangalore.

I soon realized that every city is plagued by development problems, here in Chennai the metro construction has started on Koyambedu stretch, there is a huge pileup in the evening..
