As per the notice board at Checkpost junction the white topping between Diary Circle and Checkpost is to be completed in 6 weeks. The work had begun in the 1st week of December, with implementation of traffic diversions, and we have already entered the 6th week. Even one side of the road is incomplete. It appears it would be close to 6 months and not weeks to complete the work.

Very conspiratorially, they left the start date blank on the above board and simply indicated completion as 6 weeks rather than a categorical date.
Typical of government employees to keep information as vague as possible so that questioning itself is made inconvenient, with enough loopholes & escapes built in.

But to speed up one they have to drop one. PRR is delayed due to money crunch.

148 km of 4 laned connecting roads to ease the traffic from the suburbs to the nearest NHs in all direction at a cost of 1200 crores- this is smart planning.

PRR is a different ball game and should not be compared to the above. These kind of efficient connecting roads are needed for a successful PRR.
But you can compare with that of the 'Elevated corridors'. For the cost of 'Elevated corridors', BBMP can develop thousands of km of 4 or even 6 laned roads in the suburbs to ease the traffic and connect them to NICE/PRR and NHs.
Let City Core has the best Metro/Metro Lite network and suburbs have well connected grid roads along with Metro connectivity.

PRR is also important, this is also important.

Anyway, looks like this is a rehash/repeat of what was proposed over 2 years ago. See https://www.deccanherald.com/content...-km-roads.html

Hope it does take off this time!

What's with this insistence on 4-lanes? At least in the outskirts, build 6-lane roads. The 80ft 4-lane road concept has only led to gridlock within the city due to rampant approvals of large business parks opening on to such narrow roads. Why repeat the same mistake when expanding?

On one hand, we keep hearing news like BLR will be the fastest growing city in Asia (saw a post on some other thread), but the govt is still stuck to its 70s/80s mindset of planning for a million-people city and building roads accordingly. If we want to accommodate that kind of growth with minimal pain, road widths have to increase and that should happen now. We cannot build metro lines everywhere, and 6-lane corridors will give enough space to build in dedicated bus lanes instead of trying to retrofit it after years of chaos like in ORR. It will also be more effective in drawing bypass traffic away from the inner city as such traffic can move at a decent speed.

Bluru's only hope is the following:

1. Eminent Domain to widen roads.
2. Strict enforcement of traffic rules - no parking, no motley vehicles like 3wheeler autos and other slow moving vehicles on expressways/highways, lane discipline, lorry/bus traffic in designated lanes. Without enforcement, we have entire lanes clobbered and traffic snarls. 6-lanes or 8-lanes would not matter if there is no proper traffic enforcement. With so much technology like cameras, drones etc Bluru should shape up the traffic cops duty tenfold.
3. Automated truck vehicle mounted street cleaners, working all days preferably during night time.
4. Prompt maintenance of roads for potholes and other defects in the roads. Talking of maintenance, the initial roads were asphalt and then the geniuses decided it should be concrete.
5. 24x7 monitoring of traffic, especially to clear traffic jams, proper signage and traffic lights.
6. Private contractors in charge of such roads not BBMP or some other lazy/corrupt municipal entity.
7. Properly designed metered entry/exit ramps for expressways/highways. All these last minute changes like digging underneath for free-flow traffic is very myopic planning and must have been planned out up-front. Instead today, entire city is an eternal construction zone with nothing completed properly.

^why can't they just install cameras to check Lane discipline, speed and parking just like in other countries.
I bet 99% of the violations will come down as no one will want to pay fines which will be inevitable.

Note: Dubai's major roads have cameras installed every 100 meters on the road median

I used ORR last week. No lane discipline whatsoever. The dedicated bus lane is only on the paper. Even on the ORR, at many places, the road is only a single lane after dedicating the Bus lane and with a slow-moving truck in that lane people are literally forced to use the Bus lane. Even on the ORR making a dedicated bus lane would have required some planning, like ensuring that there are clearly two lanes available for other vehicles throughout. Before expecting discipline from others, the government will need to do its homework.

Precisely BRTS works on center lanes, its a good start though.
They have to fix the loop holes. fastest growing city in the world going to face much more challenges than traffic in the next decade.

This is also the time to do some forward thinking.
With a railway halt station being built at the NW corner of the airport boundary, they should also build a full fledged bus terminal next to it. All long distance outstation buses- both private & govt. should be compulsorily terminated here. Also a BMTC terminal shall be included. Passengers should board the local train OR a BMTC bus. BMTC should provide frequent services to multiple destinations all around the city from here.
Will prevent all those individual buses from clogging the highway towards the city and even the internal ares of the city.
As per Google map there is enough vacant land to take up this project. 10 years from now you may not have that luxury.
