Entering Rajajinagar (all photos taken by me)







Road right next to Adyar Anand Bhavan



Not sure what this place is called





On the flyover leading to K.R. Circle





The greenery around looked fantastic! The traffic was just a niggle compared to how brilliantly green the trees were

Sankey Rd residents demand the truth

Quote:
BBMP Has Not Taken Citizens Into Confidence On Road Widening

Insists There Is No Secrecy



Sunitha Rao R | TNN

Bangalore: The BBMP is promising a beautiful,smooth drive along a wider Sankey Road,but its residents are just not convinced.They see no need for a wider road,besides which,they are not clear as to what will be lost in this exercise trees,land,or both.
They are also complaining that the BBMP has thrown a veil of secrecy over the entire project.Though the plan is ready,the people have not been taken into confidence,is the charge of the Malleswaram residents welfare association,which is refuted by the deputy mayor.
BBMP says the 2.6km road will be widened at a cost of Rs 29.94 crore.The width of the road is between 10.5m and 25.4m,and will be widened up to 30m
and 45m,depending on availability of space.
It will be widened by building an embankment on the tank bund on the temple side.The road from Bhashyam Circle will be wider on the left side,which has fairly empty land,while the right side will be left undisturbed as the lake abuts the road from the circle to the temple.

TRAFFIC STATUS ON SANKEY ROAD


Dr Meenakshi Bharat,member of the Malleswaram RWA Swabhimana,told TOI that the residents of Malleswaram had conducted a survey with the help of a private firm to understand the traffic status on Sankey Road.The survey revealed that the Passenger Car Unit movement is 119 per hour during peak hour.Comparatively,the road sees heavier traffic for one hour each every morning and evening.We dont know how they will widen the road.Road widening has been taken up to get Jn-NURM grants,and decongesting traffic is just a reason given to the public.
How can any road be widened without public consent When we asked BBMP for information,we were made to run from pillar to post and in the end,we got nothing, said Jahnavi Pai,a Malleswaram resident.
It may be recalled that seven voluntary organizations and RWAs of Sankey Road,Hasiru Usiru,Sadashivanagar and Malleswaram staged a protest against the proposed project.
The deputy mayor has refuted charges of secrecy,but admits that public consent has not yet been taken.There is no secrecy behind widening Sankey Road.It will be widened as per the notification issued by BBMP.The major roads committee will take a call on it with regard to convincing the public.This stretch comes under BBMPs signal-free corridor project.An embankment will be made on the tank bund to widen the road.Right now,the focus is on land acquisition, deputy mayor S Harish told TOI.

March on World Environment Day


Nothing is clear,though BBMP has marked properties on Sankey Road.A road is supposed to be laid at another level.We will not allow any widening and tree-cutting on this stretch.We will march on this road on World Environment Day to campaign and save trees.

Dead end to signal-free corridors
TNN | Jun 8, 2011, 05.35am IST
Quote:
BANGALORE: The cash crunch in the BBMP is forcing it to shelve the Rs 3,200-crore project that could have eased traffic congestion in a big way.

The signal-free corridor project, approved amid high drama, was planned for 12 roads. As an experiment, BBMP entrusted two roads to the Bangalore Development Authority -- from Town Hall to Kengeri via Sirsi Circle (15.5 km) (Nayanhalli underpass) and Cubbon Road to Outer Ring Road via Kamaraj Road (8 km). Over 15 flyovers are likely to come up without road widening.

"Some roads in this project involve road widening. The entire project cost is Rs 3,248 crore. But bidders have quoted 47% above the scheduled cost and the cost escalates to Rs 5,000 crore. We have no money and taking another loan is impossible. Besides, projects requires 43 lakh sqft of land to be acquired which costs about Rs 6,000 crore if we compensate land owners. Not an inch of land is available on these stretches. It's not a scientifically planned project and execution is not easy. I've asked the standing committee and council to relook at the project," BBMP commissioner Siddaiah told TOI.

Midnight drama

There were allegations against the BBMP in January 2010 when the civic agency allegedly flouted rules while allotting tenders for Rs 3248 crore of works on the project. BBMP stuck by its stand in the high court when it was questioned by former mayor P R Ramesh and others. Five months ago, the court gave its nod.

12 signal-free corridors

* Dr Rajkumar Road, from Yeshwanthpur Junction to Okalipuram (5 km)
* Chord Road, from Mysore Road Junction to CV Raman Road (10.5 km)
* Magadi Road, from Chord Road to Outer Ring Road (3.5 km)
* From Mysore Road Junction to Central Silk Board Junction (14.5 km)
* Central Silk Board Junction to Vellara Junction (6 km)
* Bannerghatta Road, from IIM-B to Wilson Garden (9.5 km)
* Vellara Junction to Whitefield via Varthur and HAL (13.5 km)
* Agara Lake to Sirsi Circle via Lalbagh Fort Road (8.5 km)
* City centre to Kengeri via Sirsi Circle (15.5 km)
* Yeshwanthpur industrial area to Hebbal, between NH 4 and NH 7 (6.5 km)
* Mehkri Circle to Benniganahalli via Jayamahal Road (12.5 km)
* Cubbon Road to ORR via Kamaraj Road, Buddhavihar Road and Hennur Road (7 km)

Quote hanger

* I questioned the BBMP on the legality of the project when tenders were called but the high court cleared it. This is essential but must be done in a citizen-friendly manner. Having no money is one issue and the other is that there's no policy in place for land acquisition. Shifting it to BDA is unconstitutional as BDA is not a local self-government.

P R Ramesh | former mayor

* The state government must fund these projects. Civic agencies must not run away from problems. The project is essential for smooth vehicular movement. But in the ABIDe plan, road widening was not part of it. It's wrong if BBMP says Sankey Road widening is part of signal-free corridor. Only junction widening is required.

Signal free ring road will come up first. You can circle bangalore without a stop

Thank God, the signal free corridor project is dead. BBMP can't complete simple underpasses (Kadirenahalli, Tagore circle) in 3 years. How it would have built so many flyovers/underpasses at the same time?

@Gentem, High hopes !! "Signal free ORR" is just a myth. Why?

1. BBMP is supposed to build flyovers/underpasses at all signals from Silk-board to Mysore road. Apart from Puttenahalli (completed) and the legendary kadirenahalli, no other project has even started.

2. On the ORR from Silk board to Marathahalli, there is already a new signal at Iblur junction (after the flyover construction has been completed). This signal cannot be eliminated unless a new flyover is constructed at this same junction.

3. Near to Marathahalli, opposite the Innovative Multiplex, there is a U-turn which always causes a jam and a mess. The U-turn is for traffic which come from KR puram side and want to turn right towards Old Airport. Now, it is being "managed" by a cop/warden. This jam/mess will not be eliminated even after all the flyovers are completed. Technically, ORR will be a signal free road from Hebbal till silkboard, since BDA will not install signals here, it will not be a non-stop road.

You are right, iblur junction is only one way signal free. That is because that sarjapur road flyover was started before yeddy announced "signal free orr". Hope they will construct another parallel flyover at that junction once other flyovers are completed.
So you can circle bangalore without a stop only on sundays afternoon only :P Im praying god for kadirenahalli, pls pls pls (i will visit personally soon).. Katriguppe and devegowda underpass/flyover is required.

But one good thing in this endeavor of making signal free orr is that we can only go upward. That means no. of flyovers can only increase, where signalled junctions will only decrease with time. That is incrementally, unlike some single big project like metro.

@DigitalOne.
Hennur banaswadi Road junction and madiwala were BBMP projects that took lesser time.

The U turn on ORR can be shut down.
It was opened up when the shifted the Uturn just after Marathhalli, which in turn was created as it's a No right turn there.
It can be eliminated if they do a Dairy Circle at Marathahalli.

The signal at IBlur is pointless.
You CANNOT take a right turn there. Only a left, so why a signal?
is the BTP that desperate to show BDA who's the boss?

What're the statuses of :
1> The extension of NICE road from Peacock bridge to Mysore Road?
2> The bridge connecting Chord road over the Vrishabhavati opposite Bapujinagar Satellite bus station ???

I don't think these are elevated flyovers.
May be just Road Widening (or) Road improvements.

BDA has no money for anything new or even salaries. These are just proposals to get more funding. It probably won't happen in our lifetime!

I hope by elevated, they are building flyovers and making it signal free, not attempting BETL.

@rsrikanth,
I agree, Madiwala was done in very quick time... Good job by BBMP. Actually I had read that it cost less than the other underpasses (because of the "soil-nailing" technology used). I wonder why BBMP didn't replicate the success elsewhere.

>>It can be eliminated if they do a Dairy Circle at Marathahalli.
As I said, U-turns on ORR can be eliminated only if they do many more projects not just with the current crop of flyovers.

The signal in Iblur has been put up for the benefit of the Sun City apartment complex lane residents. Otherwise they would have to take a km long detour if they are coming from M'halli or from Sarjapur road.
