Palike may acquire more land for flyover

The Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) may need to acquire some private properties to construct the proposed flyover at the Kittur Rani Chennamma Circle near the DG Petrol Pump in Katriguppe.

The long-pending proposal for 352-metre-long flyover to overcome traffic bottleneck at the Chennamma Junction got the Cabinet approval on Tuesday night. The project is part of the signal-free corridor from Bannerghatta Road to the Nayandahalli Junction and it will be built on the road along the Kadirenahalli underpass towards Nayandahalli. The estimated cost of the project is Rs 23 crore, which may escalate further due to inflation.

The Palike sources said that at least 2,600 sq metres of land may need to be acquired for the project. The Palike may have to acquire at least 1,100 sq metres of private land as there is 1,500-sq metres of land belonging to the BDA and the BBMP available.

Earlier, the Palike had planned a three-tier grade-separator at the Chennamma Circle, including an underpass, which was supposed to be built from Padmanabha Nagar end towards KIMS Medical College. The presence of a major stormwater drain near the road junction made the project impractical.
