ORR flyover work by BDA chokes traffic

S Viswanath, from Outer Ring Roads Association shares the following information on the state of Ring Road at Bellandur junction.

The U-turn at Intel junction after Bellandur is now completely blocked, so please drive carefully and move to the right lane after the Intel junction. The traffic police and ORRCA team is doing all possible to ensure smooth traffic.

BDA work has created muddy messes at each junction. BDA has not cleared the sand/mud and this is blocking smooth flow of water at various spots.
At the connections between service road/main road, the gutter is blocked and huge pile of sand has been dumped on the main road.

The BDA contractor team is not very responsive. The service roads and the junctions are all in pathetic conditions. This is not only affecting ORR companies but all companies who use this stretch to go/come to Whitefield, Mahadevapura, Hosakote, Koramangala, e-city etc. We cannot blame the rains for spoiling the roads.
