Component : Opening of Grade Level Bridge and service road from Indiranagar to Airport road.
The overall length of this component is 323.00 Mts. Out of this, the bridge across the Nala is 90 Mts. and the bridge across the drain is 8.00 Mts. The service road between the two bridges has been formed by constructive an R.C.C. retaining wall on one side, in order to avoid inconvenience to the occupants of existing buildings.
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.
PROJECTS IN THE PIPELINE:
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-
• 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-
• 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-
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-
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-
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-
• 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:
1 : Location map
2 : Proposed alignment of PRR land use / land cover
3 : Proposed alignment of PRR – drainage intersections
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-
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-
Wet mix macadam : 300 mm
Dense Bituminous macadam : 110 mm
Performance of pavement would seriously be affected if adequate drainage measures
are not taken. Quick run-
• Cross fall of min. 2.5% will be given for carriageway.
• Bottom of sub-
• 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
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
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.
PROJECT NOTE ON THE PROPOSAL FOR FORMATION OF HI TECH CITY AND CORRIDOR ROAD
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.
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.
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.
The project design details are as follows:
• 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
• Speculators are to be dis-
• It is proposed that the land use is restricted to technology industry, and the
type of building restricted to a pre-
• Land is proposed to be sold in parcels of 10, 15 and 25 acres up to a maximum of 100 acres.
• 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-
• 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-

• 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-
• Post & Telegraph Office
• Police Station
• Bus Terminal
• Community Hall
• Fuels Station
• Hospital along with one dispensary
• 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.
• 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-
• Cauvery Water supply will be provided and lines are proposed on either side of
the corridor removing-
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-
• 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-
