Traffic restrictions around Bangalore Golf Club

Traffic restrictions around Bangalore Golf Club

City traffic police may come out with some restrictions on roads in and around Bangalore Golf Club (BGC) to facilitate easy vehicular movement on Ballari Road and to decongest the stretch between Mehkri Circle and High Grounds Junction. 

The traffic police introduced some restrictions at two stretches on T Chowdiah Road and Cauvery Junction on May 28 on an experimental basis. The police have decided to initiate measures after studying the results of the restrictions.

Magic box to be closed
“We will close the magic box at Cauvery Junction on Monday on an experimental basis to decongest the stretch between Cauvery Junction and Windsor Manor bridge. We will close the magic box at Cauvery Junction permanently if the initiative succeeds,” Additional Commissioner of Police (Traffic) R Hithendra told Deccan Herald.

Vehicles from Bhashyam Circle should take a left turn above the magic box at Cauvery Junction, move on Ramana Maharshi Road, take a U-turn at Mehkri Circle on the Mehkri Circle underpass to reach Windsor Manor bridge and proceed further.

The police will restrict the right turn after the Windsor Manor bridge to enter the Kumara Krupa Road and head towards Majestic. 

During peak hours, vehicles to KK Road will be permitted to take a left turn at Le Meridan hotel and move through Avinash Petrol Bunk, take a left turn at Chandrika Junction, move on Miller’s Road and proceed further. The vehicles can also move on T Chowdiah Road, take a right turn at LRDE Junction and proceed further, said the police. The restrictions will be in effect only during peak hours.
 The decision to ban taking of the right turn at the bridge permanently will be taken later based on the result, Hithendra said. 

‘‘There were some issues regarding signal timings at Basaveshwara Circle which have been sorted out. The vehicular flow at the Junction is smooth now. The police have no plans to convert one-way traffic into two-way traffic on the stretch between Raj Bhavan and LRDE Junction on T Chowdiah Road. The police had introduced the two-way movement only on experimental basis on May 28,” Hithendra clarified.
