Traffic Jam under the Marathahalli bridge at night

The Great Marathahalli Traffic Jam – at Night.

Traffic Jam at Marathahalli in Bangalore under the bridge towards both sides at around 10 in the night! The junction of the “IT corridors” Marathahalli is getting to be the worst place in Bangalore with decrepit, crumbling infrastructure, very high levels of pollution and toxic gases from the gazillion vehicles in the area.
