Rain slows Metro work on Electronics City line 16.10.2017 deccanherald.com
Rain has been hindering work on Namma Metro's RV Road-Bommasandra line that had gained pace after the main demolition work was completed two months ago. The second phase of the project will serve burgeoning IT corridor in the east (Byappanhalli-Whitefield) and the old IT hub in the south east. The 18.82 km metro line begins with a new station next to the existing RV Road station and terminates near the proposed peripheral ring road at Bommasandra. The line will also save lakhs of commuters who spend harrowing hours at the Silk Board Junction everyday. Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Limited (BMRCL) has divided the project into three packages of about 6.4 km to expedite the work. "Most of the demolition work on Hosur Road is done. We have started the work on drains. About one-km drain was built at the site of two stations. Since August, however, rain has been playing spoilsport. We rarely get a window of opportunity to carry out the work," a senior BMRCL official said. The BMRCL has entered into an ...

Metro work adds to traffic gridlocks at KR Puram 16.10.2017 deccanherald.com
The time to travel two km from Krishnarajapuram to Tin Factory has gone up to 45 minutes with heavy traffic. As work on the much-awaited Baiyappanahalli-Whitefield Metro line under Phase 2 (Reach 1 extension) has gathered pace. Contractors working with Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Ltd (BMRCL) have barricaded a part of the road at the Tin Factory junction, reducing the width of the road and creating a bottleneck. BMRCL has acquired about 15 feet space on the flyover leading to Ballari Road and put up a barricade. The divider at the junction has been removed for the soil test. KSRTC buses from Kolar, Krishnarajapuram, as well as BMTC and private vehicles, stop near the Tin Factory, next to the Metro construction site.

Gridlock on potholed ORR makes commuting a nightmare 16.10.2017 deccanherald.com
Waterlogged roads, traffic snarls and potholes have turned the Ecospace service road on the Outer Ring Road (ORR) Bellandur into a living hell. The road which is home to a host of IT biggies, MNCs and many upscale city residential clusters is a nightmare for motorists, pedestrians and residents alike. Incessant rains over the last few days caused the Savalkere Lake to overflow onto Ecospace road. Police were seen struggling to handle traffic from late in the night until the early hours of Monday. Savalkere Lake near the Ecospace service road overflowed and water gushed on to the ORR causing waterlogging at the tech park RMZ Ecospace on the arterial road. Savalkere is one of the largest lakes in the city. According to local residents, most part of the lake is encroached upon by illegal builders, causing blockages and silting of rajakaluves (stormwater drains). There are five lakes around Sarjapur. If one lake overflows, the water should flow through the drain to another lake. The water overflowing in ...
