Traffic diverted on Sirsi Circle flyover

The Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) on Sunday started the work on replacing the faulty expansion joints of the Sirsi Circle flyover.

Repair of about 15 such expansion joints of the flyover was taken up four months ago.
Now, the Palike has taken up the work on the remaining five joints. On Sunday, road dividers near the joints were readjusted to enable diversion of traffic on the flyover.

Palike engineer-in-chief B T Ramesh said in a press release, “Movement of vehicles from Town Hall to Mysore Road via the upper ramp of the flyover has been prohibited due to the ongoing work. The vehicles will be diverted up to KR Market, and will have to take a turn towards Chamarajpet and Mysore Road. Vehicles travelling towards Town Hall from Mysore Road too will have to take NR Road.”

Total expenditure

The release said the total expenditure of the project would be about Rs 2.65 crore and work will be completed by April 9, 2013.

The joints on the 2.5 km-long Sirsi Circle flyover had started falling apart, forcing the Palike to take up the repair work from December 2012.
