So NaMo is visiting Hosa Road Jn on Hosur Road today evening (5:30pm as per the flyers. road towards M&M service centre, left from the signal when using the service road towards Madiwala). There is a ground/ venue prepared opposite to the Concorde Aprt.
It is a nightmare on any given day to use this road during (ab)normal hours. Tonight will be insane for sure. I have ditched my car & opted for a two-wheeler, having no other choice to reach home. Don't have a bicycle, else would have chosen that. At least I could carry it, if not the other way round...
Also heard ruomours that RaGa will be landing shortly as well. I hope he chooses another spot...
So how was the traffic on ORR near Sarjapura junction last evening ? Fearing snarls, I took the Indiranagar-Koramangala route to travel back from Manyata to HSR.
I left at 5:45 from Whitefield. Followed the normal route along ORR. There was a pretty sizeable jam on the Bellandur flyover. I feared the worst, but couldn't find the reason for the jam. It cleared up immediately after the flyover, and was smooth sailing till HSR, where I turned off the ORR.
The following BHPian Thanks bharat4ever for this useful post:
today was breakdown fever right from sarjapur flyover and along the road connecting to agara lake flyover circa 5 PM; two BMTC volvo buses, one on the flyover and the other just below it and another rickety rustbucket of a 401 truck. As usual, our ever curious motorists have to slow down and take a peek!
What's with the authorities removing the concrete support blocks from the light poles along the median of ORR?
And there is a private bus broken down opposite VIMS hospital.
And the road from Panattur to Kannalli is blocked. Yesterday there was Kannalli village festival, in which they used two juggernaut cars which are as wide as two trucks. One of them was parked on a narrow stretch today morning, and a trailer truck tried to go past it through non-existent space, resulting in a jam.
And so I had to take ORR from Sarjapur road junction till Doddanekkundi. Tell me, how do you guys drive on ORR? I get so confused. There are no lane marks anywhere. Tractors, bikes and buses are in all lanes. I realised that middle lane is safest, since left lane is for bus stops and parking, while right lane is for slow moving traffic. But many times I drifted left or right as I had no line to guide me.
