The road leading to Bellandur from Iblur is being cleared and the diversions removed in a weeks time. Vehicles plying from Bellandur towards Iblur need to go on top of the flyover and land at Iblur village cross, vehicles plying from Bellandur towards Sarjapur need to take the left lane/service road before the flyover and turn left.
Haphazard parking is a big problem, especially on the roads near Bellandur junction, Spencers and Total Mall. People are ignoring the no-parking boards. We have requested the traffic police to penalize the violators.
Vehicles, mainly public transport buses from Sarjapur Road to Marathahalli and Iblur to Sarjapur Road will cross under the flyover. Lane discipline is the only way to keep this smooth.
We have requested traffic police to paint the speed breakers at all junctions from Marathahalli till HSR BDA Complex. Praveen Sood, ACP (Traffic) has said it will be done very soon. The asphalting of roads below flyovers also will be completed very soon.
We are redeploying the ORRCA traffic warden team from coming Monday, they are on duty 7 am to 12.30 pm and 4.30 pm to 9.00 pm at:
a. HSR BDA complex junction
b. Agara (only traffic police)

e. Haralur junction
f. Kaikondrahalli, Sarjapur road
