Techies' solution for ORR traffic chaos may produce one more flyover 15.12.2017 Deccan Herald - News
The increasing nightmare of traffic snarls on the Outer Ring Road, especially along the stretch connecting the Hebbal flyover and Horamavu, may be eased with a touch of innovation from the tech community. But their idea of adding one more layer to the already confusing labyrinth of flyovers in the area has triggered some concerns. Consultants from Embassy Tech Village have proposed an extra ramp to link Nagawara and Veeranapallya flyovers, with an extension to the Manyata Tech Park. The Embassy Group has agreed to sponsor the project. On Friday, the consultants made a presentation to Bengaluru Development Minister K J George, Mayor Sampath Raj, Additional Chief Secretary, Urban Development, Mahendra Jain and BBMP Commissioner Manjunath Prasad.

Set for a short ride home 12.12.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
Ever watched The Jetsons and wondered how you could get into one of those pod taxis and swoosh to your destination? This could soon be a reality in Bengaluru because the BBMP has planned to introduce the Personal Rapid Transit System (pod taxi service) near the Metro Stations and bus stations (in selected stretches). With dug-up roads and traffic snarls becoming a part of ones routine, this proposal is being welcomed by citizens. Despite limited feeder bus services from Metro stations and connecting buses from bus stations, these pod taxis could be a blessing in disguise for those who depend on public transport, vouches Usha Iyengar, a teacher and resident of Kengeri. "Imagine a break from commuting on bad roads, blaring horns and road rage? What more could you ask for? A pod taxi service at places like Silk Board junction or in Whitefield would cut down on so many hours of travel time," she says. Usha points out that once such a service is introduced, it should be available every three to five ...

Coming face to face with some difficult questions 10.12.2017 Deccan Herald - News
There were hardly a pair of eyes that were not moist while watching a poignant play that helped one connect with their inner selves and gave courage to pose some difficult questions. The Woman in Me brings one face to face with the questions we are afraid to ask ourselves. Loosely based on the concept that there is a man in every woman and vice a versa, the play attempts to bring our attention to the inner self that needs love and respect. The play begins with a man who represents a husband standing in front of the mirror in his bathroom looking and interacting with his deceased who continues to live in him through his inner thoughts. The play depicts the woman in him that represents his wife asking to be loved, to be respected and valued as a person which she failed to receive from the husband. The husband feels love is ownership and a sense of possession, failing to realise it is the little moments of joy, romance, fights and the freedom to be oneself. The woman in him confronts him on the questions he ...

Commuters demand sustainable, well-planned infrastructure 9.12.2017 Deccan Herald - News
Bengaluru flyovers are constructed only to be demolished or redesigned later. This has come to the fore once again with the Jayadeva flyover scheduled to be demolished soon for a Metro line on the same path. Many feel that such mega projects should be meticulously planned to avoid disasters as it involves human resource, time and money. DH speaks to a cross-section of Bengalureans to ascertain their views on such unplanned projects. One of them, Manjunath Basavaraju, Regional Procurement Manager, Danske IT opines that flyovers in the city have been built unscientifically. He explains, "A few of them are too small while others are lengthy without proper planning. They are not built to ease traffic along a stretch but only to decongest a specific intersection. This is wrong. These flyovers should be built with an intention to decongest multiple intersections on a long stretch. The entry and exit points should have enough room for motorists to pass through." Basavaraju also laments that these flyovers are ...

The traffic police are on the lookout for the owner of an Uber cab that caused an accident on the elevated expressway in South Bengalurus Hosur Road on October 14, killing two people instantly.

Japan to fund Peripheral Ring Road project only after land acquisition 7.12.2017 deccanherald.com
A Japanese delegation has reiterated that it would fund the Peripheral Ring Road (PRR) project only after the state government completes the land acquisition process. The delegation headed by Japanese Ambassador Kenji Hiramatsu conveyed the decision to Bengaluru Development Minister K J George on Wednesday. Sources said the delegation inquired about the delay in land acquisition even a year after the government mentioned about the financial assistance from the Centre. George and officials from the Bangalore Development Authority (BDA), Bangalore Water Supply and Sewerage Board and urban development department are said to have informed the delegation that the Centre is yet to provide financial assistance to acquire land. According to the sources, the delegation was stunned at the protracted delay in executing the PRR project from Hosur Road to Tumakuru Road to complete the full ring and linking with the existing NICE Road. In 2016, the state had promised a then visiting Japanese delegation that it would ...
