In today’s busy world, none of us have time to look at what is important. We need to stop ourselves for a minute and look around to see what is going wrong. One such instance, which needs immediate attention is the “Hebbal Flyover“. This flyover was inaugurated on December 30th, 2003 and our honorable CM S.M. Krishna said its a new year gift to the city.
Now we can see a minor crack and the flyover has developed problems with its expansion joints on the arm leading towards Hennur from the airport. The 65 crore flyover was the longest in the country at that time running up-to 5.35 km, with two separate carriageways and six lanes. It was south India’s first interchange at five levels which was built in just 24 months. This is something Bangloreans should be proud of, and now its time to secure it and avoid the disaster.
We do not want Kolkata flyover crash to be repeated here again, so immediate action from BDA has to be taken and avoid the nightmare as this flyover will always be wedged solid with traffic gridlock. This is one of the most busy bus station with a lot of school children commuting everyday, and also the main route towards the airport. When we can protest and stop the steel bridge from Chalukya to Hebbal flyover, why are we silent for the safety of children and responsible lives.
Its time to stand up and question the concerned authorities about the quality of flyover and get this problem fixed on priority.
Wake up Bengaluru!!
