Bengaluru: The Bengaluru Metro Rail Corporation Limited (BMRCL) has announced the completion of a 3.3 km double-decker flyover spanning from Ragigudda to Central Silk Board (CSB) along the Yellow Line (RV Road - Bommasandra). Scheduled for vehicular movement from Ragigudda to CSB on or after June 15 pending final inspection, the flyover features a lower deck for vehicles and a top deck designated for Namma Metro.
Additionally, BMRCL is constructing five loops and ramps at the CSB junction, labelled A, B, C, D, and E. Ramps A, B, and C will connect KR Puram and Hosur Road from the Ragigudda/BTM Layout side, while D and E will link KR Puram to BTM Layout and Ragigudda. Major activities at A, B, and C ramps are nearing completion and are set to open in June, while D and E ramps are expected to be operational by June 2025.
With the road flyover positioned eight metres above the existing road and the metro viaduct towering 16 metres above the surface, Bengaluru joins cities like Jaipur, Nagpur, and Mumbai in featuring road-cum-metro structures, as reported by Moneycontrol.

How Would Commuters Benefit?

This development is expected to significantly benefit commuters, particularly in alleviating traffic congestion during peak hours along the Ragigudda-CSB stretch, transforming it into a signal-free corridor. Commuters travelling from Ragigudda will now seamlessly traverse CSB without encountering signals, facilitating smoother connectivity to HSR Layout and Hosur Road.
The CSB junction, renowned as one of Bengaluru's busiest intersections, will witness added convenience with the introduction of two Metro stations: the Blue Line (CSB-KR Puram) along the Outer Ring Road and the Yellow Line (RV Road-Bommasandra). While initial plans aimed to integrate both stations, BMRCL officials cite a distance of approximately 355 metres between them. Consequently, BMRCL has proposed connecting them via a travelator to streamline access between the two lines, further enhancing commuter convenience and connectivity in the city.
