Bridge situation is worsening as it’s over 60 years previous

The slim bridge on a secondary storm water drain close to Jnana Bharathi campus on Mysore Street has grow to be a site visitors bottleneck.

Motorists going in the direction of both Mysore or Jnana Bharathi must battle rather a lot to go straight or take a proper flip at this junction.

Commuters ready to take a proper flip on the site visitors junction blocks the motion of automobiles continuing in the direction of Mysore because the width of the street will not be enough.

The opposite hurdle is the slim bridge constructed on the storm water drain a few years in the past. Automobiles coming from Mysore in the direction of the town get caught on the bridge as its width is barely sufficient to accommodate a couple of heavy automobile at a time. The width of the street as much as Jnana Bharathi Namma Metro Station is three lanes on either side (in the direction of Mysore and in the direction of the town), however the stretch between the bridge and the site visitors junction close to the metro station is hardly sufficient to accommodate two automobiles on all sides of the street.

The width of the street between the bridge and RR Nagar Junction is six lanes (three lanes every on each roads). The one bottleneck is the bridge constructed on the secondary storm water drain, located between RR Nagar Junction and Jnana Bharathi Namma Metro Station.

“We now have requested the BBMP authorities to widen the bridge, however nothing has been carried out to mitigate traffic-related woes,’’ stated A Satyanarayana, a resident.

Motorists opine that it will not be a tricky job for the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) to widen the bridge because the Bangalore Metro Rail Company Restricted (BMRC) constructed Namma Metro pillars after leaving enough house close to the bridge.

“Widening the width of the bridge on the storm water drain is not going to have an effect on Namma Metro pillars as there’s ample house. Rising the width of the bridge will facilitate clean motion of automobiles at this junction. I believe it’s time for the BBMP to take a call on this problem,’’ stated Mallesh M, a resident of Iyanna Shetty Structure.

He stated the bridge is greater than 60 years previous and is deteriorating with an enormous hole between the 2 lanes with none barricading. This makes it deadly for two-wheeler riders.

Blaming the site visitors police and BBMP authorities for the delay, Sanjay R, a resident of RR Nagar, has stated the authorities involved ought to have taken up the widening work quickly after the development of Namma Metro pillars close to the storm water drain.

“Just lately, Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai visited RR Nagar, however the officers involved didn’t inform him concerning the site visitors jams occurring throughout peak hours on this stretch. I do know it isn’t simple for the BBMP authorities to amass land from a non-public builder (on the left aspect of the stretch between the bridge and the site visitors junction close to Jnana Bharathi Namma Metro Station), however widening it’s going to remove site visitors jams at this junction,’’ stated Sanjay.

In the meantime, BBMP Chief Engineer Lokesh has stated that he would look into the matter.

Regulating congestion on this stretch throughout peak hours, particularly weekends, has grow to be robust for site visitors police.

“I assumed workplace just lately. I’ll look into it,’’ stated Kamakshipalya Site visitors Police Inspector.
