Opening woes

Ok . You heard that the jayadeva flyover was being opened today. What do you think the “opening” meant to the traffic on the road?
Check out the picture of the chaos that followed and an amusing write up by Deepa here.
And you thought “opening” the flyover actually includes opening it!

    Perhaps they thought: public put up with 3 years of wait, who would crib if its 1 more day!

    I am trying to figure possibilities of relevant PIL(s). If anyone has PIL info/fundas, or will like to join in, please let me know.

    We had more ‘fun’ in the evening, with the traffic direction on the fly-over ‘restored’ to original plan and multiple right turns blocked. Let’s give it a week and see if the fly-over really solves traffic problems for BTM Layout, Bannerghatta Road, Jayanagar and Dairy Circle areas.

    Sigh.. today we took 20 minutes to cover the distance we could have covered in 5 minutes — just because of the brand new flyover.

    Yesterday I decided to get off the auto and walk to my office rather than wait for the traffic to clear. I thought today the situation will be better (as the so-called opening ceremony was over on monday) but there was no difference. The worst thing was that today I was driving and I did not have any choice. It took me nearly half-an-hour to reach office :(
