The ‘last hurdle’ for techies commuting to work at the Manyata tech is crossing the potholed-ridden Veerannapalya flyover. The flyover on the busy Hebbal-KR Puram stretch of the
“I was recently driving on this flyover and my bike hit one of the potholes. As it was on the ascent side I could save my self, despite the fall. I was lucky enough to save myself from running over by other vehicles. This flyover needs urgent fixing,” said V Lokesh, a techie who works in
Meanwhile, those coming to work from the other side are finding it tough to reach their offices due to the bad conditions of both the flyover and the service road from Nagawara. The service roads are meant for having an access to the shops and buildings along an express way or a national highway.
The service road along with Outer Ring Road near Nagawara Junction has become useless, thanks to the negligence and apathy of the elected representatives and the authorities concerned. The motorists from other areas such as Ramamurthy Nagar, Horamavu, Kalkere and other areas curse themselves while commuting a 500-meter service road near Nagawara Junction.
The motorists, especially two-wheeler riders, are facing lot of problems to use this service road. The service road was dug up for laying water pipelines six months ago and the residents complain that the authorities concerned have completely forgotten about their responsibility to restore the road after laying the pipelines.
“The traffic moves at a snail’s pace on this service road and one needs 10 to 15 minutes to reach the other side of the road at this junction. The authorities should really fix this as early as possible to avoid inconvenience to the motorists and the residents in the area. The delay in completing the construction of the flyover by Manyata Tech Park is also contributing to the traffic snarls here,’’ said Rajashekar, another techie.
Shaky concrete slabs on the tertiary drains on the road side also pose dangerous to the unwary pedestrians. Due to lack of any security, two-wheelers illegally riding on the footpaths is another threat to the pedestrians. “We can’t blame the two-wheeler riders. They are violating the traffic norms only to avoid the traffic snarls. There were a few instances of two-wheeler riders meeting with accidents while riding their vehicles on the tertiary drain,’’ said a resident on conditions of anonymity.
A little rain is enough to make this service road into a mini pond since the tertiary drain is filled with silt. With most of the potholes covered with water, it would be tough for the motorists to navigate with the potholes on this service road when it rains. “It took me more than 30 minutes to reach the traffic junction last week. The road was full of water. It was very difficult for me to ride my bike. I do not know when this road will be asphalted,’’ said S Suresh, a software engineer.
Meanwhile, HBR Layout ward corporator P Anand has said that he was aware of the road’s condition. “The road was dug up six months ago for laying water pipes. The authorities have to restore the road but not done. I have already discussed with the authorities and emphasized the need to fix the problem as early as possible to avoid inconvenience to the motorists and the residents. I hope the asphalting of the road to begin soon. Heavy rains had prevented the development till date,’’ said Anand.
