All About Panathur
Bengaluru has developed tremendously during the last decade, attracting a lot of major firms to establish headquarters. It is home to India's ever-expanding IT and ITES sector and is one of the country's fastest developing metropolises. It has attracted young professionals from all around the country, making it India's third most populated city. While this surge has caused a variety of challenges, transportation congestion remains the most serious. SOBHA, as a responsible business organisation, is dedicated to make a significant contribution to fixing this issue. According to the Revised Master Plan 2031 of the Bangalore Development Authority (BDA), the city would have 20.3 million people by 2031, surpassing the existing population of metros such as Mumbai and Delhi. The proposal also states that Bengaluru's existing population of 10 million people wastes 600 million man hours each year, resulting in a loss of INR 3,700 crore, of which INR 1350 crore is spent on fuel alone, and the rest on productivity (man hour). Such losses have an influence on the city's and the country's overall economic and social progress. Outer Ring Road (ORR), Sarjapur road, Panathur road going to Varthur from ORR, and HAL road are some of the significant roads linking major IT and ITES organisations in Kadubeesanahalli and Devarabeesnahalli nowadays. Panathur / Outer Ring Road (ORR) to Balagere is one of the most crowded, with barely 4m of vent over a 4km stretch absorbing automobile traffic from both sides. This causes a 600 to 700-meter-long traffic congestion, wasting at least 45-60 minutes of commuting time on average. While the situation is dire, there are no other options for getting from Balegere to Panathur/ORR. Furthermore, the route from ORR to Balegere is in terrible shape. Increased development in the region is projected to exacerbate traffic problems on the route. It is expected that the number of vehicles and two-wheelers would be approximately 50,000 in the next 4 to 5 years. As a result, it is critical to seek solutions for enhancing traffic management and planning for future growth.
