The newly built skywalk with an escalator on the Outer Ring Road (ORR) at Nagawara junction opposite Embassy Manyata Business Park was inaugurated on Tuesday.

The skywalk, built by Embassy Group in partnership with Bengaluru Development Authority (BDA) and Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP), has been constructed at a cost of Rs 7 crore.

Designed by BDA and Nagesh Consultants, the skywalk will benefit 15,000 citizens including a large number of employees working at the software technology park who cross the busy junction every day. The escalators are provided at both ends of the skywalk for the benefit of people with disabilities and senior citizens.

Minister for Agriculture and Byatarayanapura MLA Krishna Byre Gowda said: "With vehicles increasing at this junction of the ORR, it had become a problem for pedestrians to cross the road safely. The skywalk provides easy access from and to the bus stop on the south of the ORR, benefitting tech park users and residents of surrounding areas."

Gowda urged the public, specially the working people, to opt for car pooling to reduce traffic congestion at Nagawara junction. He added: "About 15,000-20,000 vehicles, mostly four-wheelers enter Manyata Tech Park of which, about 76% are single-passenger vehicles. The owners do not want to share their vehicles with others. No infrastructure would be enough if people do not cooperate."

Embassy to build flyover
Chief Executive Officer of Embassy Office Parks, Mike Holland told DH that they plan to construct a flyover outside the Business Park, connecting two points along the ORR-Thanisandra Road from Nagawara junction and Nagawara lake. He added that the total cost of the project is Rs 70 crore and would be funded by his company.

"Similarly, we plan to build a skywalk at Embassy Tech Village Marathahalli, ORR," Holland said.
