A Half-Finished Bangalore Flyover and Crumbling Roads

The edge of a half-finished flyover stands in the void as its construction abruptly ends. A scene from Bangalore at Hennur Cross junction on the Outer Ring Road. This junction is an asthma-inducing dusty, crumbling mess of urban crumbling, of a village trying hard to become a city. Also take a look at the awesome “roads” below. Of course, nobody is bothered, this flyover has been standing like this for a year now with no closure of construction in sight. Just another example of the “Silicon Valley’s” pathetic infrastructure. Oh and people as usual with zero civic sense dirty whatever structure they can by pasting ugly paper bills on them. If you look closely you can see a flex for some Kerala Samajam function with Suresh Gopi’s face on it. This is the location below.

Filthy Kaloor Bus Stand, Ernakulam

The filthy Kaloor bus station in Ernakulam (Kochi), Kerala. Despite all the natural beauty the state has to offer, cleanliness of the place is literally (pun intended) the dumps. And bus stations act like magnets for filth, be it private bus stations or KSRTC bus stations. An exception is the new Mobility Hub at Vyttila. Most buses now start from there instead of from Kaloor.

View of the Electronic City Elevated Expressway

A view on a rather cloudy day from atop the elevated Expressway over the Hosur Road in Bangalore which connects Electronic City to the rest of Bangalore. The World-class piece of infrastructure provides non-stop connectivity to both the Phases of Electronic City and ends beyond it on Hosur Road. It is 9.98 km long and is tolled, officially it is called the Bangalore Elevated Tollways Limited (BETL). Those new to Bangalore will not be able to comprehend the horror that was the Hosur Road before this was built. It took 2 hours to cross those 10 kilometers.
