Photo of Udupi Garden Signal Junction, BTM Layout, Bangalore, without any traffic

Rare Photo of Udupi Garden Signal Without Traffic!!

The Udupi Garden signal (or the “junction of 16th main and Ring Road”), named after a famous restaurant that used to exist there (today it has become a ‘Shanti Sagar’), is one of Bangalore’s junctions most notorious for its traffic jams. The junction is situated in BTM Layout on the main artery of the IT corridor and hence sees jams stretching kilometers towards all sides every day. Here is an extremely rare photograph of the junction and the 16th Main (BTM layout 2nd Stage) with almost no traffic! Taken on the day of the India – Australia cricket World Cup semifinal match. Good thought of the authorities building the footpath/sidewalk around the tree, sparing it 🙂 This junction was the centerpoint of my life for more than 6 years 🙂
