Bengaluru Airport Elevated Corridor Submerged; Commuters Stranded Amid Heavy Rainfall



Bengaluru Airport Elevated Corridor Submerged; Commuters Stranded Amid Heavy Rainfall

The incessant rainfall on Monday evening wreaked havoc in north Bengaluru as the Kempegowda International Airport elevated corridor was submerged under water, causing widespread inconvenience to commuters. The heavy downpour led to severe waterlogging, leaving passengers traveling to and from the airport stranded in long hours of traffic congestion.

Expressing frustration, commuters took to social media platforms to vent their grievances over the toll road’s water congested state. One user, Rajiv, questioned the lack of drainage on the elevated bridge, attributing the flooding to construction oversights. Another user, Sunil, highlighted the broken water hoses below the flyover from Allalasandra to Jakkur, urging the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) to undertake maintenance work on the tolled road leading to the airport.

In response to the situation, the Bengaluru Traffic Police issued diversions near Kodigehalli, instructing incoming traffic towards Hebbal junction to utilize the service road. Commuters were urged to cooperate as efforts were made to alleviate the traffic woes caused by the waterlogging atop the KIA elevated corridor.

Aside from north Bengaluru, heavy rains also pounded other areas in the city, such as east Bengaluru, where commuters faced challenges navigating their way back home. Multiple advisories were disseminated by traffic authorities to keep the public informed about traffic diversions and disruptions across the city.
