The end in sight?
What is the first thing that comes to your mind when you think of the Jayadeva flyover (at the intersection of Bannerghatta Road and Ring Road)? Perennial construction work? An unfinished concrete structure? Vehicles diverted through narrow bylanes? Traffic jams?
You might have to erase those images from your mind. The Jayadeva flyover-underpass seems to be completed! The sign boards have been put up, and the roads are being tarred!
Work was begun on this flyover in Feb 2003, and was scheduled for completion in April 2004. Due to various glitches, the completion date was postponed to Feb 2005.
But that deadline also flew past, though the main ramp of the flyover was opened around that time. But the construction of the underpass went on, seemingly endlessly, but now it seems that the end is finally in sight.
All the residents of the bylanes around the area, who had to put up with diverted traffic for an unexpectedly long time, can now heave a huge sigh of relief. And the traffic should hopefully ease up around the region.
I only hope I am not speaking too soon! :)
