One side of the Sirsi Circle flyover will be open for traffic from Friday evening.
After a delay of three days, the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) officials have said the road from Town Hall towards Mysuru Road will be open for commuters from Friday evening onwards.
The BBMP had undertaken the asphalting work of the flyover and the work on this route had begun during the end of December last year. The traffic from Town Hall was diverted to alternate routes via KR Market.
“The asphalting work from Town Hall towards Mysuru Road is completed and we will open the road for traffic from Friday evening,” said K T Nagaraj, chief engineer, road infrastructure, projects, BBMP.
He also said that the traffic from the other side of the flyover, from Mysuru Road towards Town Hall, will be shut as they would take up the repair work on that side.
“The entire project is expected to be completed in a month’s time,” he said.
This time, the civic body is using a new method of asphalting called 'asphalto seal pad' for the road, which not only increases durability, but also consumes less time. A similar method was adopted for asphalting Richmond Circle flyover.
