Marathahalli Bridge: So far so good
Since the inauguration of the bridge on Friday, traffic has been flowing smoothly both ways on Marathahalli railway over-bridge. There was no traffic jam in the peak hours both during morning and evening today. Traffic was flowing smoothly, and there was no waiting in any part of the stretch from Kundalahalli to Marathahalli. People commuting to and from Whitefield can now feel less miserable and can save around 20 minutes or more on their way to office/home.
It is a good thing that the new bridge was commissioned before all those giant apartments in Marathahalli got fully occupied. We still have to wait to see how the bridge scales up once people move in to these apartments. In the meanwhile, traffic on the old bridge has been stopped and construction of second phase has already begun.
