K R Circle-SBM junction road to be closed

Metro work on this stretch to begin this weekend

In view of the construction of an underground reach of Metro train between Chinnaswamy Cricket Stadium on Cubbon Road and Majestic, the traffic police have decided to close this road.

However, the police have identified alternative routes to ensure smooth vehicular movement.

The vehicles will move on the alternative road created through Central College Ground in front of the Court Complex.

Since the width of the road is limited, no heavy vehicles, including BMTC buses, can ply along it.

Alternate routes

- Buses moving from K R Circle towards City Court will have to proceed to Maharani College, take left turn down the ramp and reach SBM junction using Palace Road.

- The buses moving from SBM junction towards K R Circle should move on Palace Road and proceed towards Basaveshwara Circle for their onward journey via High Grounds Police Station. These buses cannot ply on Dr Ambedkar Veedhi.

- The buses heading towards Shivajinagar would move through Palace Road, Basaveshwara Circle, LRDE, GPO, Coffee Board and Shivajinagar.

- Passengers who used to get down on the eastern side of the  Vidhana Soudha should get down on its western side as Dr Ambedkar Veedhi will be out of bounds.

- Traffic movement on Dr Ambedkar Veedhi from K R Circle towards GPO will be curtailed and vehicles will move on the new road in front of the Vidhana Soudha by taking a left curve before Gopala Gowda Circle. Buses would not be allowed to stop at any point on this stretch.

Passengers can board the bus from the western gate of the Vidhana Soudha.

- Motorists going to the High Court should take a right turn at Gopala Gowda Junction.
Closure at South End Circle

Pillar installing work at South End Circle will begin shortly. It will take nearly 90 days for the work to complete.

The police will divert buses on the stretch as construction materials will occupy a lot of space on the road, making it congested.

Private buses will not be allowed to ply on Patalamma Road, Nittur Srinivas Rao Road (South End Road) and Ane Bande towards South End Circle.

These buses will have to take K R Road, Jayanagar 9th Main Road and T Mariyappa Road.
