  • Of these, the 4 lanes touching the road median (2 in each direction) are only for Hyderabad-bound (or returning) traffic.
  • Yet, the temporary separators they have installed have been moved around so that there is access towards Hyderabad even from the airport-bound lanes.
There are a further 4 temporary toll collection points accessible from the left-most lane, a short distance ahead of the main complex towards the airport.

Couldn't see what happened to the toll booths under the ramp towards the airport.

Re: Rants on Bangalore's traffic situation

Accident Update.

A cab has rammed into a BMTC bus causing major block on the ORR. The site of the accident is just as we come down from the Intel Flyover, going towards Marathahalli. The queue of vehicles had already reached till Ecospace.
Some smart cab drivers and tempo travelers took this opportunity to drive on the wrong side in the service lane causing it to jam as well.

Please check the maps before your commute to ensure you know the latest status.

UPDATE:

We passed the area at around 07:55. It took us almost 15 minutes to cover the distance from EcoSpace till the foot of the flyover. Since we were in the middle lane, flanked by BMTC buses on either side, couldn't see anything on the sides. But there was a bus parked near the bus stop.

The traffic was coming back to normal on this stretch but the other side, towards Iblur, was getting congested as we passed the spot.

Although off topic in this thread, could you please tell as to what prompted you to call that man a retard for writing POLITE very clearly on the windshield? Or, was he doing something / pretending like a policeman?

Unless there is some deep thought process in play which I have totally missed, the owner is hoping to pass off as a Bengaluru Police vehicle.

Re: Rants on Bangalore's traffic situation

For guys who were using the Bannerghatta Road >>Vijaya Bank Layout>>Duo Layout >> Begur Road >>Manipal county Road to enter towards Electronics City, this is now blocked out in the direction towards Electronics City due to Metro Construction.

Is there any alternative to bypass the Manipal County Road and still connect into Hosur Road by some alternative route nearby?

Take the straight road at the Star bazaar junction, instead of taking the right towards Manipal County road, and just follow the flow of traffic - this leads to Kudlu gate junction, but let me warn you - Kudlu junction is another traffic nightmare.

Due to the metro construction, getting in and out of singasandra area is a nightmare now

Re: Rants on Bangalore's traffic situation

I use the NICE road to reach electronic city. After exiting the toll i used to take the left turn and not climb the up ramp. At White Feather i used to take a Right turn which leads up to Electronic City entrance. This was using the service road. Today when i reached the point the have blocked the service road and you need to take a left and come onto the main road. Drive down to the Jail road signal and take a U-turn. This costed me around 20 mins extra. I have not used the ramp so not sure where it exists.
Any pointers.

Re: Rants on Bangalore's traffic situation

Heard that BJP president Amit Shah is on visit to Bangalore and may be going around some parts of Outer ring road. Does anyone know specific areas and time? I am expecting traffic jams wherever he visits and want to plan leaving office accordingly. Thanks in advance!

Please dont get into the White feather service road. Instead, climb the Hosur road ramp and at the very end of it, take a right U turn again into PES college service road. Through this you can join the Hosur road and eventually take a right turn into EC.
