The right side of Nrupathunga Road facing St Martha’s Hospital will open for traffic on Monday, while the other side towards the RBI office will be closed for TenderSURE work.

The right side of the 800-metre-long road, which connects southern and eastern Bengaluru, was closed for traffic on February 26 for upgrade under the second phase of the TenderSURE project. White-topping on this part of the road will get over by Sunday evening, and vehicular movement will resume on Monday, R Hithendra, Additional Commissioner of Police (Traffic), told DH.

However, the left side will be closed till April-end. BBMP officials have told the police that the entire road would be ready for vehicular movement from May 1 onwards. BMTC buses and government vehicles were allowed to ply on one side of the road while work was taken up on the other. Other vehicles will continue to be disallowed from entering the road until the project is completed, he added.

Other vehicles, including cars, motorcycles and auto-rickshaws, should ply via Cubbon Park (Century Club to Central Library) to reach Hudson Circle.
