After overcoming multiple delays, Bengaluru is gearing up for the inauguration of its inaugural double-decker flyover connecting Ragigudda to the Central Silk Board (CSB). Spanning a distance of 3.3 kilometres, this innovative infrastructure promises to reshape commuting along one of the city's busiest corridors.

The Bengaluru Metro Rail Corporation Limited (BMRCL) has announced the completion of the ambitious flyover project, which integrates both road and metro rail functionalities. The lower deck of the flyover will cater to vehicular traffic, offering a direct route from Ragigudda to CSB, while the upper deck will accommodate Namma Metro, enhancing public transit accessibility.

In addition to easing traffic congestion during peak hours along the Ragigudda-CSB route, the double-decker flyover is expected to establish a seamless, signal-free transit experience. Commuters travelling from Ragigudda will benefit from uninterrupted connectivity to HSR Layout and Hosur Road, marking a significant improvement in Bengaluru's urban mobility landscape.

BMRCL has also undertaken the construction of five integral loops and ramps at the CSB junction, labelled A, B, C, D, and E. Ramps A, B, and C will facilitate direct connections to KR Puram and Hosur Road from the Ragigudda/BTM Layout side, while ramps D and E will link KR Puram to BTM Layout and Ragigudda, expected to be fully operational by June 2025.
