Richmond and Residency Road are two of the busiest arterial roads of Bangalore City, parallel to M.G.Road. Due to on going metro-works on M.G.Road the traffic on these roads has further increased.
Moreover, the signal at the top of flyover has caused unnecessary holdup as well as adverse impact on the safety of the flyover. To rectify this anomaly, City Traffic Police has planned to change the traffic pattern starting 12th of December 2009 on experimental basis.
Since Richmond Road is one way from D’Souza Circle towards Richmond Circle and Residency Road is one way from Richmond Circle towards Cash Pharmacy – no changes are made on these roads. However, the cars and two wheelers (LMV) moving from Richmond Road on up ramp will be towards Double Road instead of Mission Road. Buses and other heavy vehicles however will not climb the up ramp at Richmond Road.
Similarly, traffic will flow from up ramp on Mission Road towards Residency Road. Hence, Mission Road down-ramp will become up-ramp. The ramp on Double Road will be two way up to merging point on the flyover.
Consequent to this modification following traffic advisories are issued;
