I support Hebbal Steel Flyover

The traffic congestion in Bengaluru, India's 3rd largest city, is severely affecting the daily office commute of ordinary people. This traffic also affects the people of Karnataka who have to travel to Bengaluru, the state capital. Bengaluru, being one of the engines of India's GDP growth, is also frequently visited by Business travellers, who also bear the brunt of the traffic congestion.

Karnataka Government has recently approved the construction of a Steel Flyover from Basaveshvara Circle to Hebbal Junction. This 6.7 km stretch is part of the heavily used highway corridor from Kempegowda International Airport in the north to Electronic City in the south. 27 kms of this corridor is already elevated road. (18 kms from Airport toll plaza to Esteem Mall near Hebbal Junction. 9 kms from Silkboard junction to Electronic city.)

We believe this proposed new elevated segment will help ease traffic congestion, by separating the long distance vehicle traffic (to Hyderabad, Tumkur, Ballari, Peenya, Airport) from neighbourhood traffic in Malleswaram, Hebbal, RT Nagar, Vasanth Nagar, Guttehalli and Sadashivanagar areas.

We believe this flyover will help make public transport faster, by moving unnecessary long distance traffic on the ground to the elevated road. 1000s of Taxis, buses and app-cabs that ply on this road, will have lesser running time and hence become more attractive to commuters who currently use private vehicles.

We believe this elevated road will benefit the commuters going to Yeshwantpur Railway station and Peenya Industrial Area (via Mekhri circle ramp), IT offices on Outer Ring Road, Defence establishments along Ballari road and the Kempegowda International Airport.

We understand that some people have reservations about this project. We request them to read the detailed answers written here https://siddaramiah4cm.wordpress.com/2016/07/01/support-rajbhavan-to-hebbal-flyover/ and consider dropping their opposition to this project.

We request the Chief Minister of Karnataka Shri Siddaramaiah and Bengaluru Development Minister Shri K J George to go ahead and expedite the construction of this steel flyover, for the benefit of the people of Bengaluru and Karnataka.
