Bangalore: A traffic nightmare is in the offing for commuters using Bellary Road for five days from February 7. Thousands of visitors are expected to attend the five-day Aero India show at the Yelahanka Air Force Station which opens on that day for the public.
On a good day, the traffic on this arterial road is anything but orderly. And if past experience is anything to go by, traffic-stressed Bangaloreans can expect additional chaos.
As if this were not enough, another event, a Pranayam Dhyan Shibir by Sri Sri Ravishankar of the Art of Living (AoL) Foundation from February 5 to 8 on Palace Grounds skirting Bellary Road, is likely to add to the traffic volume.
Aero India, which started here in 1993, has become a mega event for Defence and civil aviation sectors. It also attracts the public fascinated by air display. While businesspersons visit the show in the mornings, the general public is allowed in the evenings, which is when the city's traffic management is put to test. Bellary Road is the only road from the city to the venue.
Traffic used to get severely affected during the earlier editions of the Aero India also what with the heavy movement of VIPs and visitors.
