The ORR will have new traffic and parking arrangements and regulations within a week.
What’s it about? City police authorities have held discussions with the Outer Ring Road Companies Association (ORRCA) and asked officials to implement new traffic and parking regulations. It’s to ensure the smooth flow of traffic in the area. The ORRCA agreed to provide 50 traffic marshalls who’ll work alongside police personnel.
- One of the new rules would be that the service road on ORR should be one-way from Hebbal flyover to Silk Board. Parking of private buses on the ORR would be regulated.
- Parking and encroachments on service roads will be removed. The U-turns between Marathhalli Bridge and Yemlur would be closed or regulated.
ORR details: The ORR is one of the busiest and most congested roads in the city. It was constructed 20 years ago to help decongest traffic in the city centre. Companies along this stretch have been asking for a long-term solution. It connects major highways and passes through places like Hebbala, HSR Layout, and Kengeri Satellite Town.
