Old Airport road flyover
A major landmark in Domlur is the Airport road flyover on Old Airport road and Inner ring road junction. This flyover was notorious for its delay in construction and the traffic trouble caused by its delay which was due to the mismanagement by the subcontractor UPSBC ( Uttar Pradesh State Bridge Corporation) . The construction of the flyover which was started in early 2003 ended in 2007. The flyover, excluding the outer loops, was completed in July 2006 and opened to public on July 12, 2006 . Subsequently, the other loops were opened to public in the next 8 months.
