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.

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…
