Bengalureans on Sunday formed a human chain to protest a massive steel flyover, which experts say, is a disaster in the making.

A number of protesters gathered along Ballari road from Basaveshwara circle to Hebbal to form a human chain protesting the construction of the steel flyover over the Hebbal-Chalukya circle stretch.

With the cost of the project pegged at Rs 1350 crore, residents have been up in arms against BDA's decision to go ahead with the construction, which they say will do nothing to ease the city’s traffic.

The Citizens Against Steel Flyover Facebook page as well as an online petition has been mobilising voices against the steel flyover.
