Bengaluru's first double-decker flyover to complete by March 2023

The city's double-decker flyover, which was supposed to open in October 2021 but has been delayed, is now expected to open in March 2023. The 3.3 km flyover on Marenahalli Road between Ragigudda and Central Silk Board will have a lower deck for vehicles and an upper deck for the Namma Metro.

The Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation (BMRCL) is in charge of building the flyover. This will be the first time in the city that a Metro line will run above a flyover. The elevated road will be 8m above the current road level, and the Metro line will be 16m above the surface. Cities like Jaipur, Nagpur, and Mumbai already have similar structures.
