Electronic City Elevated Expressway (officially Bangalore Elevated Tollway) is a 9.985 kilometers (6.204 mi) long elevated highway from Silk Board junction to Electronic City in Bangalore, India. The project is a part of the BETL (Bangalore Elevated Tollways Ltd), project as part of the National Highways Development Project and the Elevated Highways Project. It was initiated in early 2006, and was inaugurated on 22 January 2010.[2] It starts from Bomanahalli after the Central Silk Board flyover and goes on up to Electronic City. It goes above the BMIC flyover, at a height of 17 meters (56 ft), thus making it Bangalore's tallest flyover.[3]

The elevated expressway has helped to reduce the commute time to the tech hub of Electronic City greatly. Post the construction of this expressway, the travel time to Electronic City from Silk Board junction near Koramangala is reduced to a mere 10 minutes. The Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike and Bangalore Development Authority have planned a series of flyovers and underpasses to make this arterial road signal free.[4]

Exit Points[edit]

Electronic City Elevated Expressway has 3 exit points in Electronic City which are, one directing towards Electronic City Phase 1 by right side, second one directing Electronic City Phase 2 by left side and third one directing to Attibele in Anekal.
