The Karnataka cabinet, on February 1, approved several projects aimed at enhancing Bengaluru's infrastructure. Among these projects are an elevated rotary flyover and a railway overbridge to the Sir M Visvesvaraya Terminal railway station, which is worth around Rs 263 crore.
The decision to construct the flyover and railway overbridge stems from the need for a suitable approach road to the newly constructed terminal. Law Minister HK Patil said that the elevated flyover will be erected at the IOC Junction, while an additional railway overbridge will be constructed at the Baiyappanahalli railway level crossing.
According to the proposed plan, the road infrastructure will extend from ITC Limited, towards Fraser Town, to IOC Junction, as reported by The Times of India. The rotary flyover will provide access to the terminal and facilitate travel towards Old Madras Road. Motorists originating from Kammanahalli and Banswadi will also have access to the flyover. The report also said that motorists coming from all directions will be able to use the flyover and travel towards any direction.
The cabinet also provided post-facto approval for various development works and whitetopping of roads in Bengaluru, amounting to approximately Rs 1,200 crore.
