Havoc in Hosur road

I'm a daily user of this Hosur road. I don't travel the entire stretch of the road, instead I travel 4 Kms from Silk board junction. The construction of the new flyover is creating more disturbances than convenience.

I would depict the scene that happens in this road. Major disturbance is the Fly over thats constructed. Its a useful project of the public, but will it be really used after so much annoyance during the construction. The major reason for this fly over is for the population thats traveling to Electronic city. Because of the fly over construction the center of the existing road is being blocked with barricade. The intrusion is so much that there are certain points in the road where only a bus can go at a time, which slows down the traffic at those points. Next moderate annoyance is that the road is divided into service lane and main lane. Both the lanes are at different levels, the vehicles that are in one lane are not able to shift to the other lane. This leads in one lane having kms of vehicles piling up and the other lane like a freeway. If the gentle (bmtc) buses shift lane, there is nothing more than that.

No proper planning. The rain water drainage that was completed is dug again and its open for last one week. Today a gentle (Bmtc) driver uncle parked his bus in that open pit. :) Pitty traffic was not moving on the service lane. Punctured trucks, intelligent traffic police and most importantly the public who cross the road in flash.

P.S: Dad, I drive safe and responsibly in the road.

"Driver uncle parked his "bug" " ?? - Mistake i guess.. :)

You can include me too under the list of privileged people who use Hosur road.

What bothers me so much?
Dust - especially in the Bomnahalli stop. Its worst. I do not know why the barricades has to be so wide in the middle...
