Public roads, private chaos 17.6.2017 deccanherald.com
Getting trapped in peak-hour traffic near the K R Puram cable-stayed bridge should be every motorist's worst nightmare. Triggering the madness, hundreds of private buses stop right at the bridge's entry point. The traffic piles up so badly that the entire Outer Ring Road underneath comes to a grinding halt. Motorists assume that heading out of the city would be a breeze once they pass the hyper-clogged Hebbal flyover. But the heavy congestion opposite Esteem Mall would stump them. Dozens of private buses would be lined up without any order to pick up passengers at will, a definite recipe for chaos. Not shifting But unauthorised private bus stops sparking massive traffic congestions are not just an outer city phenomenon. Right within the city centre, in transport hubs such as Majestic, City Market and Kalasipalyam, private bus operators reign supreme. They are in no mood to shift to the outskirts, where satellite bus stops have sprung up albeit with disuse problems of their own. Weekends and holiday ...

When art makes a noise... 13.6.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
Art is known to be a wonderful medium. More so, when it comes to making a noise. The art fraternity in Bengaluru has been an active lot, pushing the limits of their creativity and directly bringing the spotlight on issues, when all else fails. Installation artist Baadal Nanjundaswamy recently drew attention to a gaping hole on Castle Street near Shoolay Circle with his depiction of 'tandoori chicken' on a grill. "I noticed this worn out manhole cover where the metal rods were clearly visible. I painted a piece of thermocol and placed it over that. There was no title given to it and the interpretation was left to people's imaginations. Each one could interpret it differently in their own way. The main thing was to point out the civic issue at hand, especially to the authorities in the city," says Baadal. There are many other artists, like Baadal, who are exposing the numerous civic issues and environmental concerns in the city with a stroke of their brush or in their own unique style.

Roads waterlogged, commuters stranded and lost 10.6.2017 Deccan Herald - News
Nothing could be more troublesome than getting caught as a motorist or commuter on Bengaluru roads when it rains. Affordable autorickshaw rides and app-based taxis vanish. So does public transport. Even if somehow you find a means of transport, the inevitable rain-triggered traffic jam lurks just round the corner. Due to poor drainage, several city roads get flooded quickly. Riding a two-wheeler or driving a car gets extremely tricky, as potholes lurk under the sheets of water. On ITPL Road, Silk Board junction, Hebbal flyover, KR Puram and other areas where congestion is the norm, rain spells hell. Shravan, a private firm employee, who commutes from Koramangala to Jayanagar and back every day, has experienced the problem several times. He says, "I need at least one and a half hour to reach my office, which is very hectic. Once it starts raining, traffic jams are a certainty due to waterlogging on the roads." Commuting gets extremely tough when it rains during office peak-hours. "People park their cars ...

Bulgarian firm to study tunnel route to KIA 9.6.2017 deccanherald.com
After giving up the steel flyover project from Basaveshwara Circle to Hebbal, the state government is pushing for the tunnel route from Mehkri Circle to the Kempegowda International Airport (KIA) near Devanahalli. Bengaluru Development Minister K J George on Friday held discussions with Bulgarian representatives from ISA West Consortium Company for the tunnel route. The representatives made a presentation explaining various proposals regarding providing tunnel route at various points to reach the KIA. The minster advised them to come out with specifics of the tunnel work between Mehkri Circle and Columbia Asia Hospital. He also asked them to conduct a preliminary feasibility study and submit a report so that a clear picture would emerge on implementing the proposals in a phased manner. The representatives told George that they were ready to invest 70% of the total project cost under Private Public Partnership model. It was decided at the meeting that a three-member committee be constituted to interact ...

Okay for Rs 19.85-cr steel flyover at Shivananda Circle 7.6.2017 Deccan Herald - City
The State Cabinet on Wednesday gave its approval for the construction of a steel flyover at Shivananda Circle at a cost of Rs 19.85 crore. Land acquisition and other expenses will jack up the cost of the project to Rs 40 crore. The Cabinet decision comes close on the heels of dropping a steel flyover project between the Chalukya Circle to Hebbal flyover costing around Rs 1,800 crore following a public outcry. However, the Shivananda Circle steel flyover is much smaller, which is more of an overpass. Sources said the bridge will be 326 metres long with a carriageway width of 14 metres. It will connect commuters from Race Course Road towards Hare Krishna Road and the Railway underpass in Sheshadripuram. Shivananda Circle is the intersection of Hare Krishna Road with Kumara Krupa Road. M Venkata Rao Infra Projects has been assigned the project to complete it in a year from the date of commencement of project, said Palike sources. The Cabinet also decided to develop the Bagalur-Budigere Road as a two- lane ...

Airport train, beyond Metro 3.6.2017 deccanherald.com
The just-finalised Metro link to Kempegowda International Airport will take over five years to take off. Why not use an existing rail track that runs right under the Trumpet Flyover to operate an airport train? The fast expanding Kempegowda International Airport (KIA) had to be linked to the Namma Metro network. There was no choice. The question is not why, but when and how. Now that the route has been finalised, isn't it time to ask how fast will the project take shape, and think about alternatives to make up for the inevitable delay? Yes, delay. Inevitable, because the Metro's first phase itself is yet to be fully operational and the second phase could take six years or more. Besides the Detailed Project Report (DPR) for the airport link is not ready yet. The message is clear: To be integrated with the second phase, the link will not happen in a hurry. The finalised route is an extension of the 21.25 km Phase 2 line from Gottigere to M G Road to Nagawara. This line had entered the tendering stage for ...

Metro the best option, but why not local trains? 3.6.2017 Deccan Herald - City
Alternative roads to the Kempegowda International Airport (KIA) do exist, one through Hebbal flyover, another through Bagalur and a third from Old Madras Road via Budigere cross. Yet, commuters find a missing link: A railway or a Metro connection that can bypass road traffic. Peak-hour traffic often brings the existing Airport Road to a virtual halt. The roads proximity to various industries and corporate offices makes it even worse. Commuters bound for the airport get caught in the congestion, missing flights. A frequent flyer, Abhijith R Priyan, explains why a dedicated Metro line to the airport would be the best option: "If Im going to the airport, I will obviously be carrying luggage. A passenger train will not suffice as they are crammed and infrequent. A Metro train will be faster and more convenient." A Metro train will become a reality only after six or more years. How about dedicated airport trains on the existing track, with a halt station near the Trumpet Flyover on Airport road? Commuters ...

Not an end to traffic nightmares 3.6.2017 Deccan Herald - City
Connecting the Kempegowda International Airport by Namma Metro may help flyers reach the airport soon but will definitely not end the traffic nightmares of commuters in north Bengaluru. For residents of Thanisandra, Hegde Nagar and surrounding areas the announcement has brought hope but they take that with a pinch of salt. "Of course, it will save us from the traffic. But we are aware of delays in implementation of the project. We dont know how long this will take," said Soumyashree Nayak, a resident of Thanisandra. Karnataka Abhivruddi Mattu Anushtana Samiti president B M Devarajappa, who led over 12 resident welfare associations during the "Steel Flyover Beku" campaign, noted that while the government dropped the controversial project, no alternative has been provided. "The Metro, when it comes, will cater to a few layouts and areas. By the time the project is completed, the number of vehicles will increase and there will be new layouts with more people. Residents of Hebbal, Sanjaynagar, Sahakaranagar, ...

Lack of signboards makes commuting difficult 27.5.2017 Deccan Herald - News
Have you found yourself at crossroads in the city, confused about which road to take to reach your destination? This is an everyday struggle for most Bengalureans who lose their way in the interior lanes and areas in various parts of the city. A courier reaching a wrong address is not a rare happening as many buildings and homes bear old numbers and have not been replaced with the new ones. Areas such as Malleshwaram and the other old localities in the Central Business District (CBD) have multiple main roads and cross roads, creating a labyrinth. Some cross roads lead to other areas. But most times, these diversions do not bear proper signboards. Without proper signboards, it is easy to lose your way, especially if you are not a local resident. Besides, the city has a few areas that have similar names. This can confuse people even more. Also, Halasuru and Ulsoor are the names of the same area, used as alternatives frequently. This can lead to more confusion for a non-local. In Bengaluru, 'cross' is used ...
