The most crucial bottlenecks in the city faced traffic snarls due to showers last night, and commuters were stuck on the road for long hours. Areas like Airport Road, Chalukya Circle to Hebbal flyover, Sumanahalli junction, Nayandahalli junction, ORR – Hebbal, Gorguntepalya and Nayandahalli were jam-packed with vehicles, and cops stepped in to clear the traffic.

The road that leads to Kempegowda International Airport at Hunasamaranahalliwas also flooded, andcommuters faced delays in reaching the airport. The traffic police alerted the flyers to opt for a different route as the entire road is flooded with water.

The busy Mysuru road too faced constant traffic jams due to waterlogging and traffic was diverted to Jnanabharathi campus. In an X post, Bengaluru traffic police wrote, “RR Nagar Arch on Mysuru Road is flooded. Incoming traffic towards Nayandahalli has been completely stopped. Traffic has been diverted to Jnanabharathi campus. Commuters kindly cooperate.” A few underpasses in the city were also closed to avoid any loss of lives as heavy rains caused waterlogging.

The intense rains continued the whole night in a few parts of the city, and commuters travelling to work on Friday morning are likely to face traffic difficulties. The Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) staff are already on the ground, clearing the trees that were uprooted due to gutsy winds last night.
