The total cost of the project is 26.69 crores. The entire project viz., the main flyover between Indiranagar and Koramangala and the loops will be completed by 30th June 2005.


1) Construction of Peripheral Ring Road:

Road network in city:

With rapid urbanization in the past few years, there is tremendous increase in City's population. Bangalore city in the process has earned sobriquet “Asia's fastest growing City”. While enormous pressure on Bangalore infrastructure is there, transportation is one of the worst hit. The city road network is ring cum radial in fashion. All highways and district roads are radially converging into core area. More than 2 lakh vehicles enter the city from major highways (NH4, NH7, NH209, SH17) and another 1 lakh from other radial roads (Varthur road, Magadi road, Bannerghatta road, Tannery road). Due to growth oriented policies of Government, there is significant economic growth and the impact on road traffic on National Highways is of the order 10 to 12% each year, while on State Highways, it is 12 to 15%. The general assumption of 7.5% in traffic growth, city's roads need widening, strengthening to match the current and future traffic demands, besides, new roads are to be built to improve accessibility, reduce travel time and decongest the existing roads.

Concept of orr & implementation:

Never the city felt as in the last few years the need of bypassing heavy trucks, trailers, penetrating the city roads, which are virtually clogged by local traffic. The outer ring road conceived in 1964 took nearly 4 decades for total implementation. The city's pride Outer Ring Road (ORR) is completed in 3-phases as shown hereunder:

• 1st Phase between Hosur Road to Mysore Road (12.5Km) in 1994.

• 2nd Phase between Tumkur Road to Hosur Road (37 Km) in 2000.

• 3rd Phase between Tumkur Road to Mysore Road (16 Km) in 2002.

More than 10,000 trucks, which are non-destined and otherwise screeching the city, now got totally by-passed by ORR. No doubt ORR gave sufficient relief to intercity traffic all these days. However, even this ORR has already turned into Intermediate Ring Road due to:

• Phenomenal increase in intercity heavy trucks.

• Preferred option for local traffic for direction oriented travel.

Need for periphery road to outer ring road:

The vehicle composition using ORR consists of different classes covering cars, vans, buses, trucks, auto-rickshaws, two wheeler pedal cycle, bullock carts, etc. The flow with unrestricted mixing of different kinds of vehicles forms heterogeneous traffic flow or the mixed traffic flow. The level of service of any road is the qualitative measure describing operational conditions within the traffic stream and their perception by drivers / passengers.

The desired level of service existed immediately on commissioning of ORR has fallen so low that the individual vehicles have no opportunities:-

• To travel at their own desired or free speed.

• To overtake the slower vehicles at there will.

Except at the highest speed range that too at a few stretches. This gives an alarm on the basic objectives of ORR in effectiveness, since the existing situation does not ensure efficient, free and rapid flow of traffic, with least number of traffic accidents. The capacity of urban road for 6-lanes (two ways) is specified as 6000 PCU by IRC. In most of the stretches of ORR, the above said figure is already crossed. There is hence immediate need to strengthen the system of by-passing the intercity vehicle safely, by going in for one more ring road, outer to the existing ORR, which could be designated as Periphery Ring Road, which only could give long lasting solution.

Development on periphery ring road (prr):

BDA being the planning authority, prepared the Comprehensive Development Plan (CDP) for Bangalore Metropolitan Area (BMA), first time in 1983-84 and revised once during 1995. The ORR & IRR's implemented by BDA were part of the CDP, indicating the tentative alignment. Government of Karnataka has given the mandate to BDA for preparing a report of PRR covering survey and freezing of alignment. In accordance with this order and keeping the city's growth and also the current land in mind, identifying the feasible alignment of PRR is done through Remote sensing and Geographical Information System (GIS), which is fast as well proven modern technology.

The earlier alignment of PRR as shown in CDP 95 has the total length of 79.96 Km. shown here below:

• 42.2 Km. on the northern half (Tumkur road to Hosur road, via Bellary road)

• 37.76 Km. on the southern half (Hosur road to Tumkur road via Mysore road)

The above said alignment runs in 45% built up and is at some places lesser than 1 Km. from the existing ORR. Our objectives is to run the PRR alignment with least disturbance to the built up (residential / commercial / industrial) and at the same time giving maximum functional use for heavy volumes of motor traffic at high speeds. At the same time, adequate care for the requisite factors like terrain conditions, general hydrological conditions, geographical aspects, land use / land cover pattern, environmental issues, etc. are also given. Two corridors were selected for alternative studies and the best one was ultimately chosen from the following considerations:

• To keep the road short, safe with regards to maneuverability.

• To avoid obligatory land use like dense settlement, industrial and religious area.

• To optimally utilize existing major roads.

• To follow topography and to avoid steep, uneven terrain.

• To keep no. of curves, drains, cutting / filling at minimum.

• To safeguard potential agriculture, plantation and forest area.

• To suit further development.

Chosen alignment of prr:

The finally chosen alignment has the following features:

• Length: 108.96 Kms.

• Location at: 14-22 Km. from the city center & 2.8 – 11.5 Km from the existing ORR.

• Crossing: 12 major roads, 6 railway lines, 3 water supply lines

• Drainages: 48 major with lone river vrishabhavathi at ch 87.45 Km. & 20 minor.

• Terrain aspects:

Elevation: Highest: RL 941 m above MSL about 1 Km. SW of Pillaganahalli

Lowest: RL 780 m above MSL 1 Km. West of Hemmigepur.

• Most of the stretch has ruling gradient except between Bannerghatta and Kanakapura road, where deep cut and fill is to be done.

• Alignment running in existing land use:

• Passing on existing roads : 2.90 Km.

• Conurbation area : 8.92 Km. (5 locations)

• Forest area : 1.15 Km. (2 locations)

The maps and tables enclosed here below explain various details:

• Map

1 : Location map

2 : Proposed alignment of PRR land use / land cover

3 : Proposed alignment of PRR – drainage intersections

• Tables

1 : Salient features of proposed PRR

2 : Details of alignment running in existing land use

3 : Details of flow for drainages.

The alignment chosen crosses conurbation areas at 5 locations and avoids forest land in most of the places except at 2 locations, where there is already existing road for 0.54 Km length. The remaining 0.61Km road goes in forest land as it is inevitable because of very high detours and steep terrains. The alignment chosen is away from the BMIC Corridor (NICE) with sufficient distance.

Corridor pavement and drainage requirements:

The proposed PRR alignment links major highways and district roads, thereby creating direct corridor passage round the city. Lot of commercial hubs, housing localities would come up along PRR. Most of the intercity heavy trucks obviously prefer this corridor instead of ORR, in view of quick / safe traverse and also marginal increase in distance. It is hence proposed to adopt 6-lanes corridor as per IRC standards. With 1.5 m of central median and 2 m earthen shoulders on either side, minimum width of 27.50 m is proposed to be developed fully. Since the PRR runs in semi urban belt for the major length, it is proposed to develop service road only at urban limits and at junctions, keeping extra land on either side in rural stretch for developing service road at a latter date. Land width of 60 m (min.) is proposed for acquisition. Incidentally such an acquisition helps to reduce the cost of embankment of highway as the lead involved for extra earth could be borrowed from the excavations on either side. Such a step also would ensure good drainage and improves the longevity of the road pavement. Further, such a concept also helps to recharge the ground water and where the collections of rainwater are high, we can create artificial ponds without extra cost, which in fact is environment friendly in keeping with the concept of green belt.

Pavement design will have to be made for min. 15 years design life. With the increasing traffic and incidence of overloading, design traffic of greater than 30 msa is assumed pending traffic study and axle load survey: Using sub-grade soil having CBR of 2%min, the pavement composition as adopted for ORR and as being presently used for NHAI works is assumed. The min. general composition is assumed as per MOST standards as under :

Sub-grade : 500 mm

Granular sub-base : 300 mm

Wet mix macadam : 300 mm

Dense Bituminous macadam : 110 mm

Semi-dense Bituminous macadam: 25 mm

Performance of pavement would seriously be affected if adequate drainage measures are not taken. Quick run-off of surface water and appropriate sub-surface drains are to be necessarily made. The following measures are taken for drainages:

• Cross fall of min. 2.5% will be given for carriageway.

• Bottom of sub-grade level will be kept 0.6 to 1 m. above water table / high-flood level.

• GSB will be extended up to shoulder edge.

• Min. embankment height of 1 m. shall be provided.

• Side ditches / trenches formed due to removal of soil for embankment purpose in rural selections shall be turned out at regular intervals.

• In cut sections, open or lined drain shall be provided.

• In urban sections and at intersections, outer edge drain shall match with building line.

Typical cross section showing dimensional details and pavement composition is enclosed as map-4. Main features and ruling parameters of carriageway design           are given in Table-4.

Land required:

Except bits in conurbation areas, the alignment runs in green belt. It runs in cropland predominantly (60%) and less extent in Agriculture plantation (17%), commercial plantation (16%). The extent required for PRR including enabling service is given hereunder:

For road at 15 acres / Km.: For 109 Kms : 1635 acres

For other enabling services :


• Major road crossings : 12 at 18 Acres/Each : 216

• Minor road crossings : 60 at 1 Acre/Each : 60

• Rail crossings : 6 at 9 Acres/Each : 54

Truck terminals at 10 Km. interval: 12 at 7 Acres/Each : 84

Total: 2049 Acres

Project cost:

Social cost benefit:

• Savings in Travel Time and comfort

• Savings in Fossil fuel

• Reduction in Pollution / noise level

• Savings of lives


It is proposed to meet the cost of project through the resources available with BDA and with institutional borrowings.


Between Sarjapur Road and Hosur Road

Bangalore is among the fastest growing cities in the world and a key player in the nation's economic growth. India's Technology capital, the city needs to address the need of this sector in a manner that is planned, efficient and livable. Software development, Information Technology and Biotechnology are areas of global potential bringing employment opportunities and developing international skills locally. The proposed Hi Tech city and Corridor road facilities the demands of growth in this sector and provides land in the East and South taluks of Bangalore as well as in Anekal taluk.The project area is located 14 km. from the city centre and comes under the jurisdiction of the villages of Bellandur, Kaikondanahalli, Doddakennili, Junnasandra, Kasavanahalli and Karalur in Varthur Hobli, the village of Parapanna Agrahara, Naganathapura, Doddanagamangala, Doddathogur and Konappana Agrahara in Begur Hobli, and the village of Koodlu in Sarjapura Hobli.

General Terrain

The General Terrain of the project area is normally plain comprising of the lands in the above mentioned twelve villages. Part of the Corridor Road will be in the green belt area defined in the revised CDP 1995. Here, only the road requirement land will be acquired. The length of the proposed Corridor in the green belt is 4.5 km and the width is 60 metres.

Urban Planning

The scheme proposed is on the eastern part of the urban area of Bangalore as per the revised CDP of Bangalore, approved during the year 1995. The scheme is to be planned as a separate self contained one, accommodating the growth of the IT sector. The existing urban infrastructure facilities would be extended to the new project area easily.

• Study of the existing CDP for Bangalore Metropolitan Area approved in January 1995.

• A reconnaissance survey and a detailed survey of the project area would be carried for better appreciation and detailing.

• Analysis and working out of requirement of parcels and plots for commercial, public and semipublic uses would be done as per space standards suitable                  to local conditions.

An innovative approach to planning would be adopted in conjunction with available standards to suit the requirements of General Public with special emphasis for smooth movement of vehicular traffic and safety of pedestrians.

Design Approach

The project design details are as follows:

General details

• Total land acquired is 1070 acres.

• The corridor is 8.5 Kms and 60 metres wide

• 4.5 Km of the corridor is in the green belt

Buyer profile

• Speculators are to be dis-incentivised and only serious buyers will be encouraged. The method of selection will be through a bidding process and the                 pricing anticipates a self-selection of large industry players and reputed developers to participate.

• It is proposed that the land use is restricted to technology industry, and the type of building restricted to a pre-defined style. The vision is to create a                  guided development for the first time in the city. This will require policy amendments and political and administrative buy-in.\

• Land is proposed to be sold in parcels of 10, 15 and 25 acres up to a maximum of 100 acres.

Design details

• It is proposed to provide an approach road from Outer Ring Road at the Belandur junction to the Electronic City at the Hosur Road junction with a “Corridor” Road of 8.5 km to enable better connectivity. The Corridor road will be constructed as per highway standards with a six-lane carriageway and a median of about 1.5 meters. IRC norms would be followed while designing the approach roads and other article roads. They would be designed as per the CBR values and provisions of IRC. It will be designed to use a system of “U” turns to change direction, that minimizes the disturbance to the traffic, to increase the traffic safety and safety to the pedestrians.

• Entry point to the “Corridor” from the interiors will be manipulated scientifically so as to be safe and efficient. These entry points are allowed at all times from the service road only running parallel to the “Corridor”.

• Encroachment of the road setbacks from the “Corridor” will be dissuaded by the provision of a green strip and the service road that follows along either side of the Corridor.

• The service road will be completed to an asphalted finish.

• The Hi-Tech City-center is proposed that acts as a hub for residential, retail, services development. This allows a planned approach to high-rise developments and provides efficiency in service provision, easy access to transportation, shopping, etc., while providing greater security through larger community concentration.

• It is also proposed that the Tech-hub provides a convention centre and related facilities. This will be a first-of-it's-kind in the city.

• Parks will be planned in the development around the lake areas. Approximately 20 acres of land will be earmarked for Civic Amenities since the individual parcels are primarily technology parks. The following amenities are earmarked for inclusion in the development:

• Fire Station

• Electrical Sub-Station

• Post & Telegraph Office

• Police Station

• Bus Terminal

• Community Hall


• Fuels Station

• Hospital along with one dispensary

• Bank

• Telephone Exchange

• Shopping Complex

• There are five tank / lakebeds in the region; Bellandur lake; Kaikondanahalli small and one big; Kasavanahalli; Haralur.

These lakes will be desilted and rejuvenated and the region around the lakes will be protected and used as recreational zones.

Service innovations

• The wastewater from the residence and the amenity building in the Hub will be collected and conveyed through a network of sewers and manholes. The sewer will be designed for gravity flow conditions and to provide self-cleaning velocity of flow by adopting suitable slope. The minimum size of the sewer that would be provided in the township will be of 225 mm diameter. The spacing of manholes will be 30m as usual on straight stretches. Manholes will be provided at junctions, at points with change of gradients etc. The size of the sewers and manholes will be decided as per the design requirements based on the contributing population. An attempt will be made to collect the sewage from the entire township to a common lowest point in order to ensure proper out fall. Provision of appropriate treatment to render effluent, free from further pollution of ground water and environment.

• Cauvery Water supply will be provided and lines are proposed on either side of the corridor removing-the need for road cutting along the Corridor. Additionally; suitable systems of rainwater harvesting that can be used for watering the landscaping and to re-charge the ground water will be explored and implemented.

a) Water Requirement

The daily water requirement for domestic usage for the proposed residential areas will be worked out as per BWSSB standards of 120 litres per capita per day.

b) Source of Water Supply

As a permanent measure, it is proposed to avail water supply from BWSSB as the main line, which feeds Bangalore city and passes in the middle of the proposed project area. The tapping point would be decided by the BWSSB authorities and the length of feeder main would be as far as possible to reduce the cost.

c) Conveyance from Source

Water would be conveyed from the identified source point to the central storage reservoir in the development by pumping.

• Storage Reservoirs

Water required for the development will be stored in a central Ground level reservoir whose capacity would be equal to one day's requirement, assessed based on BWSSB standards. Pump sets and pumping mains would be designed as per the requirements both at the central reservoir and any zonal reservoir. A suitable site at an elevated place would be made available for the construction of a ground level reservoir.

• A system of drains and storm water drains is planned that will connect all the tanks. This will prevent overflow and flooding issues while keeping the tanks filled. It is proposed to provide side drains which would ultimately be connected to the storm water drains. The storm water drains would be provided keeping the general terrain in view; so as to drain off storm water away from the project area making the best use of natural valleys available. Also, it is proposed to provide suitable iron grating at intake points at regular intervals for preventing solid waste and other floating debris choking the drains.

• Replacement of side drains with underground drainage and run-off is being explored for feasibility in cost and construction.

• For any project of this type, the electricity is the most essential requirement, It has permeated into every aspect of our life so much that the importance of it is felt more during its absence. ‘Safety' plays a vital role in its usage especially in residential areas and service industry. Due care will be taken to adopt the best safety standards to ensure safe power distribution system. A suitable site would be provided in the project area itself for the establishment of a Sub-Station. Electric supply will be provided and streetlights installed. The mains supply will continue to be overhead since the cost of underground cabling is five times the amount.
