Hebbal is an Assembly Constituency area in Bangalore, Karnataka, India, which was once indicative of the north endpoint of the city. Though originally famous for Hebbal Lake,[1] it is now better known for the serpentine maze of flyovers that network the Outer Ring Road and Bellary Road. The flyover spans a length of 5.23 kilometres (3.2 mi) over all the loops combined. The flyover was built by Gammon India.[2] The lake area is well known for the park, the boating facility, and for the bird watching opportunities.

Hebbal used to be the end of the corporation limits of Bangalore City. One can still see the milestone between the Baptist hospital and checkpost. Bangalore has now grown quite a bit towards north,[3] beyond these marks. L&T factory, which was established in the 1970s, is also close to Hebbal. Raintree Boulevard project is coming up at same place before GKVK University. All arterial roads and road networks leading to the BIAL intersect at Hebbal. Further, BIAL has its office on the National Highway (NH 7) exit of the Hebbal flyover in Gayathri Lake Front. Due to short-sightedness of the governing authorities, the Hebbal Flyover has become a bottle-neck for traffic flow from the city centre towards North and the same when traveling from North to city centre. Traffic is crawling be it any time of the day. This is because almost 6 lanes coming from each side, jostle to fit in the two lane Hebbal bridge bringing the traffic to a stand still. The Lady Don Divya A alias Bhadrakali who is staying in neighborhood Nagawara is the most notable person. She holds the record for using good abusive languages.

Transport[edit]

The area is well connected by BMTC buses.

  • Hebbal also has a small railway station.
