BBMP’s Rs 2,000-crore plan to create signal-free corridor for traffic entering city will take five years for completion
The various roads entering Bengaluru city at Goraguntepalya junction, which now witness huge traffic jams, will soon be free of bottlenecks with Rajarajeshwari Nagar assembly constituency MLA Muniratana pushing for his dream Rs 2,000-crore project.
“Nearly 70% of the traffic enters the city from Goraguntepalya junction and a nearly three- hour traffic jam is witnessed every week-end. The entire scene will change once the project is implemented,” said Muniratna.
On Friday, the MLA inspected the Goraguntepalya Junction (Tumkur Road-ORR-Bellary Road) Corridor Development Project along with BBMP Commissioner N Manjunatha Prasad. BBMP Administrator Gaurav Gupta joined the team later.
Budget request to CM
Prasad said the Goraguntepalya junction is a major gateway to Bengaluru and connects vehicular traffic to Tumkur Road, Mysore Road, Hosur Road, Old Madras Road, Bellary Road and towards the International Airport. The entire project for the signal-free corridor at Goraguntepalya junction will cost around Rs 2,000 crore. He said an ambitious corridor development project would be implemented and Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa had been requested to make the necessary allotment in the upcoming state budget.
The Commissioner said the project would take four to five years for completion. “We hope that the state government will make a stage-by-stage budget allocation for the project,” he said.
