Iblur flyover open, traffic update

Many of you would have noticed the Iblur flyover opened yesterday. The Forward150 federation, Outer Ring Road Companies Association (ORRCA) is working with the traffic police to improve the traffic at the junction.

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)
c. Iblur Village
d. Iblur Junction
e. Haralur junction
f. Kaikondrahalli, Sarjapur road
g. Bellandur
h. Deviation opp Ecospace
i. Intel – DB Halli
j. New Horizon college
k. KB Halli
l. Multiplex

Please reduce usage of cars and adopt public transportation.

Nearby grade separator works that are still in progress include:
a. Madivala underpass: By early August, the underpass in front of Aiyappa temple will be open
b. Agara flyover stage 2 : By mid September, this will be open
c. Bellandur, Kadubeesanahalli (KB Halli) and Devarabeesanahalli (DB Halli) – these are due completion in about 15 months.

    Its sick that its a one way flyover. I was always under the assumption that it was a a two way fly over. There is real Chaos when vehicles are coming from the Sarjapur road side moving towards Belladur.

Effective speed management critical in India to reduce road crash fatalities

Speeding accounts for over 71% of crash-related fatalities on Indian roads. Continuous monitoring and focussed action are a must.

Four hundred and twenty people continue to lose their lives on Indian roads every single day. In 2022, India recorded 4.43 lakh road crashes, resulting in the death of 1.63 lakh people. Vulnerable road-users like pedestrians, bicyclists and two-wheelers riders comprised 67% of the deceased. Road crashes also pose an economic burden, costing the exchequer 3.14% of India’s GDP annually.  These figures underscore the urgent need for effective interventions, aligned with global good practices. Sweden's Vision Zero road safety policy, adopted in 1997, focussed on modifying infrastructure to protect road users from unacceptable levels of risk and led to a…

Many roadblocks to getting a PUC certificate for your vehicle

Under new rule, vehicles owners have to pay heavy fines if they fail to get a pollution test done. But, the system to get a PUC certificate remains flawed.

Recently, there’s been news that the new traffic challan system will mandate a Rs 10,000 penalty on old or new vehicles if owners don't acquire the Pollution Under Control (PUC) certification on time. To tackle expired certificates, the system will use CCTV surveillance to identify non-compliant vehicles and flag them for blacklisting from registration. The rule ultimately has several drawbacks, given the difficulty in acquiring PUC certificates in the first place. The number of PUC centres in Chennai has reduced drastically with only a handful still operational. Only the petrol bunk-owned PUC centres charge the customers based on the tariff…
