 Many IT parks are coming up near BIAL, one example of big IT Park is the Manyata Tech Park. Is the Government decision wise to open IT parks near BIAL?

Already traffic to and from airport is high due to taxis and private cars. This mixed up with traffic from residents of Sahakar Nagar, Yelahanka etc plus intercity traffic to Hyderabad, North Karnataka is making travel to BIAL a 2-3 hour journey during peak hours. More and more apartments as well as residential sites are being developed by many real estate developers using BIAL as the marketing 'gimmick' . So, the traffic is bound to increase due to these developments. BIAPPA is approving many layouts.

On top of this, if IT companies are opened near Airport, employees working in these IT companies will flood the BIAL road with single occupancy cars. Road to BIAL will become worse than Silkboard-EC stretch or Old Madras road stretch.

GOK should never give permission to any IT companies in this stretch, otherwise all its efforts to improve connectivity to BIAL will be put into water since it will be all consumed away by the IT folks traffic especially during peak hours. Unless we have a High Speed Rail to BIAL or Metro, if any developments on the IT parks will make BIAL passengers to miss the flight.

 There are so many other areas to develop IT parks such as the Tumkur - Bangalore stretch and Bangalore - Mysore stretch where the two cities can become parallel cities to Bangalore.
