Outer Ring Road, Bangalore
Outer Ring Road is a road that runs around most of the perimeter of Bangalore, India. This 62 km long road was developed by the Bangalore Development Authority and different sections were opened progressively between 1996 and 2002.
This road connects all major highways around the city - Tumkur Road (NH 4), Bellary Road (NH 7), Old Madras Road (NH 4), Hosur Road (NH 7), Bannerghatta Road, Kanakapura Road (NH 209), Mysore Road (SH-17) and Magadi Road. It passes through major neighborhoods and suburbs such as Hebbal(NH7), Banaswadi, Krishnarajapuram(NH4), Marathahalli, Madiwala(NH7), BTM Layout, JP Nagar, Banashankari, Kengeri, Bangalore University, Nagarbhavi, Nandini Layout and Gokula.
Initially conceived to keep the truck traffic out of downtown Bangalore, the city has outgrown the Outer Ring Road. Nandi Infrastructure Corporation Limited has almost completed another partial ring road around Bangalore as a part of the Bangalore Mysore Infrastructure Corridor project (BMIC). The BDA and BMRDA have planned three more ring roads beyond the existing ring road.The first of these, the Peripheral ring road will run a few kilometers beyond the BMIC-PRR. The second and third of these will be known as the Intermediate ring road and the satellite towns ring road respectively.
Core Ring Road
The Bangalore Core Ring Road is a proposed expressway system for the congested Indian city of Bangalore. It was proposed by the Bangalore Development Authority as part of a "Master Plan 2005-2015" for improvements to the traffic in the city. The proposal involves overpasses at every junction, a prohibition on right-hand turns, and free left-hand turns, allowing, it is claimed by the proposers, for the smooth and continuous flow of traffic.
The proposed Core Ring Road will accompany the already existing Intermediate Ring Road, Outer Ring Road, and Peripheral Ring Road.
