Submitted by alvin on Fri, 2017-01-27 09:59 Bengaluru: Motorists who pass through Basaveshwara junction during their daily commute have some good news. The BBMP has begun work on the Rs89-cr, North-West signal-free corridor project.According to the BBMP, once the project is completed, motorists can zip through from Vijayanagar to Tumakuru Road in less than ten minutes.Speaking to Bfirst.in, KT Nagaraj, Chief Engineer, BBMP (Projects), said the BBMP would construct two flyovers and one integrated underpass at Basaveshwara junction.“One flyover will be built at Manjunath Nagar and another at Basaveshwara Nagar 1 st main road. Work on the integrated underpass at Shivanagar began a month ago,” said Nagaraj. “Work will have to be completed by September 17 this year. Due to heavy traffic jam during peak hours, motorists from Tumkur road face difficulty in reaching Magadi Road and Vijayanagara and vice-versa. They used to get stuck at Basaveshwara junction for hours together."Nagaraj said the flyover at Rajajinagar and the BDA underpass near Hosahalli had relieved traffic congestion to an extent. “Once the project is completed, people will be easily able to reach North Bengaluru from the West and vice-versa,” he added.To ensure smooth movement of traffic during the project work, the BBMP has decided to divert traffic to the service roads.
