Traffic flow will be affected at the junction of 14th Main, HSR Layout, as Bangalore Development Authority has started flyover construction here. City traffic police have suggested an alternative route to avoid traffic woes, starting Saturday.
Since the construction of the flyover is expected to take three-fourths of the road at the junction, and work will continue for at least four months, vehicles plying from Marathahalli and Sarjapur on Outer Ring Road (ORR), towards Hosur Road, Central Silk Board and BTM Ring Road, will take the following route: Heavy vehicles are prohibited on HSR Ring Road 19th Main, towards BMTC depot (near Nanda Hotel).
Buses and trucks should take a left turn at 19th Main junction and move towards Cambridge 17th Cross to take a right turn to reach BDA junction to reach HSR 5th Main junction and then proceed towards their destination.
Since the past three months, a group of bike-borne muggers has been targeting motorists on lonely stretches of the Outer Ring Road, especially between Bellandur and Marathalli, Iblur and Kaikondrahalli, and Kaikondrahalli and Wipro. They are bold enough to strike victims in broad daylight. Police say they strike only once or twice in a month.

People from different parts of the country want to settle down in Bangalore not only because it has an equable climate but also because it is fast becoming a thriving cosmopolitan metropolis. So, everyone wants to own a house or a site here but there is a problem: Some people, after buying sites, do not care to maintain them, thus creating nuisance in the entire locality.
To control/stop this trend, BBMP has initiated a drive to clean up the vacant sites. This has been taken up seriously by the BBMP in the HSR Layout, which is a sign of some good development. The cleaning work started one week before, though the BBMP had sent the circular to this effect to the concerned ward office long ago.
“Initially it started in 3rd Sector and we have cleaned 14 sites so far in this sector. Now we have taken up work in 7th Sector. Other sites will get cleaned up based on the grievances received from the Residents’ Welfare Association and the general public,” a BBMP official said.
