The delayed underpass on HAL, Marathahalli, and Suranjan Das Road at HAL Junction will be completed by December, easing traffic in the area.
Story so far: By December, the long-awaited underpass at HAL Junction that will help with traffic on Marathahalli, Suranjan Das, and HAL Roads will be finished. The project was delayed by one and a half months, according to BBMP officials, because silt and clay were dumped onto the underpass after a particularly severe downpour. The process of building boxes and sewing is currently underway on one side, and it should be finished in the next 10 days.
- The underpass is estimated to be 2.90 metres in length.
- People travelling to Marathalli from Old Aiport Road and vice versa will not be required to wait at any signal.
Inching towards completion: According to BBMP Chief Engineer Lokesh M, who confirmed the project’s completion date, following initial setbacks, the project started two years ago, and the Palike managed to obtain 3,100 sq mt of additional space through transferable development rights (TDR) from HAL. The work on the underpass will be finished in 40 to 50 days.
