Grade separators to aid easy vehicular movement

Grade separators to aid easy vehicular movement

On ORR junctions

The grade separator that is akin to flyovers seen on prominent highways will pave way for hassle free movement of vehicles.  Two prominent roads- Outer Ring Road (ORR) Circle near Columbia Asia Hospital on Mysore- Bangalore Road and ORR Circle near Hinkal on Hunsur Road have been identified for the intended project.

DCP (Crime and Traffic) P Rajendra Prasad told Deccan Herald, the project that may cost around ` 10 crore awaits financial aid. The office of Police Commissioner has requested the chief office in Bangalore (office of DG and IG) to sanction the required amount from the chief minster’s budgetary allocation. For the current financial year, many projects on traffic front have been planned that may need a total of ` 50 crore, he added.

If implemented, the vehicles moving towards Bangalore and coming towards Mysore will move without any hiccups- either towards Bannur side, Hunsur side or any other approach roads, depending on the plan. The burgeoning traffic on these two roads has forced the cops to come out with a solution to ease the burden on other roads inside the city. Moreover, both the roads are vulnerable to mishaps. On Hunsur Road alone up to
Bylakuppe, nearly 37 accident spots have been identified. On Bangalore road, a particular spot near Subramanya Swamy Temple at Siddalingapura is the prime accident zone.

Another ambitious project includes Traffic Automation Centre. The intended centre will maintain data base regarding violations, fine imposed on a particular party, offenders and allied matters for smooth functioning of the related system. Similar system is available in neighbouring Bangalore city. That apart, more signages, destination and mandatory sign boards will be installed, as is the routine procedure.

In Kannada

To give prominence to local parlance that makes more easy to convey any information, sign boards only in Kannada will be installed soon. Recalling his visit to Delhi, the DCP said ‘There you can also see the boards in Hindi. Apart from English, if a message is carried in local language too, it would be having a greater impact’.
