While the flyover work progress on IRR, its the 80Feet road which has worst traffic I guess. Today morning was stuck from around 11.25 for around an hour in a cab. It took an hour to cross distance of one KM from 7th cross junction to Sony world signal.

Re: Rants on Bangalore's traffic situation

White topping work has started from Hennur to Manyata on one half of the road for half the distance leading up to the Nagavara flyover.

Of course, most vehicles try and squeeze on to the service road and this slows down the traffic. But if all of them just continue on the main road, there will actually be lesser congestion .

It is the same everywhere, 80ft, 7th Cross, 8th Main all the roads leading to IRR are choc-a-block from 8.30am onwards. Once on this side of Koramangala there is no way out. Somehow return journey from 6th Block to 1st Block isn't that bad.

They started all the flyovers at the same time but unable to finish any section, I also do not see any work during the day. Hope they are working during the night.

Absolutely. The so called intelligent and educated people (whether IT or general working people is a moot point here) are the ones who create the maximum chaos. Mostly the motorbikes and unruly single occupant cars. Add to the mix the wicked Autos and cab drivers who are always in a hurry and you have a recipe for zero peace of mind while driving, along with absolute mayhem during most hours on most roads. I wonder why our super brilliant government takes up all the work at the same time.
In Bangalore particularly, I find that all these public works people never seem to start any work before 1030-11am and even then, they do the work in dribs and drabs. And they dont work at night! Amazing unproductive, lazy devils.

Re: Rants on Bangalore's traffic situation

Traffic Jam alert - Expect severe delays from Carmelaram to ORR via Doddakanelli road and Sarjapur Road. Sudden rains has caused the already pathetic roads to be even more pathetic. Hence the jam.

Sarjapura Road and the roads leading to this stretch - Haralur Road, Hosa Road, Doddakanalli Road, etc., see more or less peak-hour traffic during the whole day. School buses start their morning pick up trips by 7, so there will be quite a lot of them on every stretch one can think of. These days, many of them are full length buses which by themselves cause snarls on the narrow roads, compounded by frequent stops to pick up and drop kids.

When this mess is almost over, say around 9, the office goer traffic picks up - all those moms and dads who were busy helping their kids board the school buses or dropping kids to school, now head out to work. By the time this rush gets over, it's time for the first batch of kids to be dropped back home, at around noon time - the school buses are out again. 2 o'clock to perhaps 4 o'clock is a rather free slot, but soon the next set of school bus trips start. Followed by the actual peak traffic. Late evenings also see a significant rise in number of food delivery trips - these blokes ride like bats out of caves, partly because of the demanding customers.

To top it off, there's hardly any asphalt, after the roads were dug up for various reasons. Even if the roads are empty, one can only crawl, causing traffic to build up. Compounded by the very many U-turns and haphazard parking, this area is always a nightmare.

Thanks for this alert. Got few more local updates that all of Sarjapur road and the back roads are blocked. Hence did not take out any vehicle. Had to get to office so set out on foot hoping to get a Yulu. Walked past the worst of traffic and found a Yulu.

State of road at the junction of the Ecoworld/Adarsh Road and doddakanahalli panathur road.


Rants on Bangalore's traffic situation-img_20181205_131927_016.jpg

While I was walking on a side road, noticed that it had been dug across with no way for a vehicle to pass. One desperate bike guy trying to beat the traffic actually thought he could go into the dug up pit and come out with a Bajaj CT 100. Got stuck inside the pit with his bike. Couple of people had to help him pull it out.

Re: Rants on Bangalore's traffic situation

What is with this horrible traffic at ORR near Intel flyover towards Bellandur. Hell of a jam everyday from 8 AM on wards. All because of the traffic which wants to get on to the service road comes on to the middle lane. Vehicles which has to go straight on to the flyover are stuck in this jam. There looks to be absolutely no action taken so far to curb this. Not sure how long it will continue.

I think it might reduce if those vehicles get on to the service much ahead of this fly over entrance or even go to service road right from the Panathur bridge.

Just wow ! Rain Forest Challenge (RFC) is now passe' . We need to have CJC - Concrete Jungle Challenge now!

I would hardly comment on traffic from these areas as I had lost touch since many years but since I made recent trips to here at peak hours, I was once also asked to take the road besides Wells Fargo and then approach Ecoworld from the back gate. Man, its a mess and its the same even at noon!

I came to log the ordeal and i see already few posts talking about this.
Saw 3 different incidents of bikers falling down at different section today morning in these roads and i wonder whats running in bbmp mind by taking the work in almost all roads in and around sarjapur road and never bothered to fix anyone.

The condition of Jail road is in same pathetic state for more than 6 months.

This is the same road i take daily from Carmelaram to Wells Fargo! Out of 2 lanes, one lane doesnt exist! Dust storm always! Not sure how people live in this area with the continuous dust from the non existent roads!!

Re: Rants on Bangalore's traffic situation

Just got a notification over company mail that the road towards Kanahalli (where is that?) from RMZ EcoWorld has been "closed because of last night's rain". I assume that is the road out of the rear side of RMZ EcoWorld. No wonder there's been a jam here since noon. (I work at EcoWorld.)

What?! I thought we got like 10 minutes of rain last night! What did we get 1-2mm of rain?! And that's enough to ruin the road? I thought they did up that road a few months ago.

At least some organizations are showing some sense! Hope more companies follow suit and get the heck out of this accursed ORR area! (especially mine. )

That is the one I posted couple of posts above. The road that goes towards the back from Ecoworld and joins the Sarjapur Road-ORR backside road. The start point of this road on Sarjapur Road is called Doddakanahalli or Kannalli for short.

As they have been doing all over the area, they dug up the road at this junction a couple of days back and instead of filling it and atleast leveling it a bit, they just dumped the mud back after putting the pipes.

It'd only move the bottleneck from one place to another. People that want to get on to the service road would still move to the middle and right lanes blocking the ones who want to go straight.
