As construction work for Bangalore’s Namma Metro underground interchange station at MG Road-Kamaraj Road junction is about to begin, traffic diversions will be in place in and around Central Business District (CBD) till 2023, starting Saturday.

The Bengaluru Traffic Police has implemented a new traffic route in the area suggesting routes to avoid from Saturday. Several restrictions for parking and usage of certain roads will also be in place, according to a statement by the Bangalore Traffic Police cell.

While Kamaraj Road — from Cauvery Emporium junction to Cubbon Road junction — will be closed for traffic, parking will be completely banned along MG Road, Brigade Road and surrounding areas.

Motorists travelling from Mayo Hall on MG Road will not be allowed to take a right turn at Cauvery Emporium junction. Instead, a right turn can be taken only at Anil Kumble Circle to turn into Central Street and further head towards BRV junction.
