Elevated roads have been proposed to ease congestion on four busy roads of the city including J.C. Road.

The Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) budget 2014–15, presented on Monday, has announced the construction of an elevated steel bridge from Minerva Circle to Hudson Circle, a need long felt by motorists in south Bangalore commuting to the central business district.

The elevated steel bridge, along with an elevated road from Ejipura Cross on Outer Ring Road to Kendriya Sadan in Koramangala, have already been approved by the Union government under the Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission (JNNURM).

The BBMP has also proposed to take up construction of an elevated road from Sirsi Circle to BHEL Circle on Mysore Road in association with Nandi Infrastructure Corridor Enterprise (NICE), which is also implementing the Bangalore Mysore Infrastructure Corridor (BMIC). The entry to the BMIC has been proposed near BHEL circle.

The other elevated road project is to be taken up from Race Course Road to railway underbridge via Shivananda Circle. The above projects are expected to start soon.
