In a significant move towards giving Metro link to the Outer Ring Road (ORR), the Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Ltd (BMRCL) has decided to modify the design of Phase 2 and make KR Puram and Central Silk Board junction interchange stations.
This move to accelerate getting metro onto ORR btw silkboard and KR puram is a very crucial one and much needed.
However, one cannot imagine the traffic mess this will cause during the construction in the next few years..hence some planning around traffic planning during the time of construction is very crucial.
Since the number of private vehicles is too high on this stretch, it is critical that we need alternate PT options for ferrying office goers on this stretch to prevent very bad gridlocks. Bus shuttles could be one important addition which can take the load of these office commuters..
Please share your thoughts on how and what can be done to manage the traffic during metro construction
