The Bengaluru Traffic Police Thursday implemented changes in the movement of vehicles near the Hebbal flyover to ease out traffic snarls. The area sees one of the worst traffic jams in the city and affects the flyover which connects Bengaluru city to the airport.
The traffic police said vehicles heading towards the city from Yelahanka, Jakkur, Kodigehalli and Kempapura will not move on the main road near Manipal Hospitals and Esteem Mall because the crossover points at these two places have been shut. These vehicles will have to take the service road and turn left at Hebbal Junction towards K R Puram and move towards the city.
According to a statement by the traffic police, the vehicles going to Kempapura from Bengaluru airport, Devanahalli and Chikkajala should take the service road near Vidyashilp Academy in Yelahanka and then turn left near Esteem Mall.
