Subways may help ease traffic at busy junctions

The government is planning to construct subways at busy junctions, in an effort to decongest them.

Bengaluru Development Minister K J George, on Monday, held talks with ISA West Coast Consortium of Bulgaria in this regard. The consortium claims to have an expertise in building subways. A six-member delegation from the consortium inspected the busy Goraguntepalya junction in Peenya. It was discussed to build a subway there to ease traffic. Based on the success, it was decided to build similar subways at other busy junctions.

The minister discussed a proposal with the consortium members, to construct a six-km subway from Hebbal to the city.

George is also said to have discussed the 82.7-km-long elevated corridor project with the delegation. Mayor G Padmavathi, deputy mayor Anand, additional chief secretary (urban development) Mahendra Jain, BMRCL managing director Pradeep Singh Kharola and BDA engineer member P N Nayak were present at the meeting.
