The Congress road which was closed for white topping on June 2 has now been reopened for two way traffic from Monday evening.

The barricades are also back at first gate as they were earlier.

The work on laying concrete began somewhere in March and then in June due to heavy traffic jams the road was made as one way.

Still, the road on one side is not yet complete and there is a huge gap about 8 inches. The road on the side of the railway track is laid with full concrete but the other part is not yet complete.

Still, a lot of work is pending which includes a cycle track, median lights and also gutters.

  1. I fail to understand as to why the MG road is barricaded at 1st gate.Though it is more than 5yrs now,can’t the authorities come out with a solution ,?With signals &policing ,is it not possible to allow thorough fare .Barricading is always meant to be temporary measure during festival times,vip arrivals etc.&not to be resorted as permanent solution .Does this show the failure on part of authorities,namely police,corporation ,&dist administration?How much loss of fuel,time &inconvenience it is causing to public.Taking a u turn is more dangerous than crossing a road.I call. up on the authorities to initiate suitable steps to restore thorough fare at 1st gate
