Reaching Bangalore Airport By Road

The govt has started the work on the elevated road from Hebbal to Kogilu Cross. This is something one should have completed before the inauguration of airport. Anyway, we are known to do things only in the 11th hour.

Due to the elevated road and metro rail you may need to take alternate route to the airport to avoid the hassle of traffic holdups. This problem is expected to last till end of 2012.

For those who are coming from Indiranagar, old Airport Road, Koramangala, Electronic city, Hosur Road/Silk Board junction and central Bangalore – take the Outer Ring Road (ORR) right up to Nagawara. Then take a right turn to hit Thanisandra, go straight, take a left near Bagalur Cross, hit Bagalur Main Road, head straight towards Bellary Road o na four=l;ane road from Nagawara. This route wil lavoid both Minsk Square and Hebbal flyover where the elevated road work has begun.

For commuters coming via Trinity junction, instead of taking the Cubbon Road, they can head towards Ulsoor lake, Naga theatre, Coles Park, Haj camp, Nandidurg road, Jayamahal and Mekhri circle and then head via Hebbal flyover. The route via Nagawara will also be available but will be longer for these commuters.

The Nagawara-Thanisandra route has been opened primarily for those coming from areas close to the ORR.

To avoid all the planning, we strongly recommend you to use the public transportation or a taxi service listed below.
