The Mysuru Road flyover is also known as Sirsi flyover and is Bengaluru's first flyover built in 1998. But there have been complaints regarding maintenance of the road. It is said that the road is poorly managed and movement of heavy vehicles has caused damage to the road, making it accident-prone.
The BBMP was planning to close the road for a month and repair the same. But as the Palike has to take permission for three jurisdiction as it falls under VV Puram, KR Market and Chickpet. The plan did not succeed and the road is still awaiting repairs.
