sanjaynagar road widening urgent requirement

232 users have liked.

Off late, with the increase in number of buses and also cars, there is huge traffic jam From Bhoopasand-nagashettihally road and also at RMS Near Foodworld.  Has any one observed this is there any solution to end the problem  We are every day late to office due to this problem.

One solution is to make the road one way for buses from Sanjaynagar near Karnataka Bank to take diversion to Bhoopsand without touching nagashettihally.

Parking restriction is a better option

Nagashetty halli is an important bus station - i doubt if it would be a good idea to stop buses from go thing through that route.

Instead parking restrictions at RMS, near Vibhav theater, actually along the entire stretch should reduce the problem significantly.

Venkateshhari - you need to take this issue to the local MLA's office (somewhere near the Ramkrishna temple) or talk to the traffic police (on Bellary road).

How much is needed?

There is no use stopping buses, we should encourage more buses. Unauthorized parking and people walking on the road due to encroached sidewalks is the main reason for bottlenecks on this stretch. 

They should include this modification for the bottleneck at the ORR end and improve the geometry of the road like here

The widening attempt is to connect the 80ft road from Ramaiah hospital to ORR via Dr Rajagopal rd south bound. The attempt should instead be to connect the 80ft road to Bellary road via Dr Rajagopal rd. Northbound.

Keeping this road 2 lane with uninterrupted sidewalks and pedestrian crossings every 500 mtrs will send the right signals. All we need for this 2 lane organized traffic flow is 45 ft (14 mtrs) this will give 7 mtrs for road (3.5 mtrs each lane) and another 3.5 mtrs each side for sidewalk. I think there is already 40 ft in most stretches until Nagshettihalli where it is less than 10 mtrs with no space for sidewalk. 60 ft extension will be good but the extra 4.5 mtrs should be used for protected/permissive turn lanes, slip roads, Pedestrian refuges and bus bays instead of making this stretch 4 lane.

I am sure all this will be lost on the world class engineers of our administration and after acquisition we will have 4 lanes of chaos instead of the 2 lanes of chaos now. Because believe me, with 4 lanes and no proper ped walkway or bus bays the outside lane will be used by pedestrians and car parking and we will still be left with just 2 lane traffic and buses stopping in the middle of the road. comment guidelines
