To prevent gridlocks on busy Bellary Road, the Bangalore City Traffic police have decided to block ‘exits' from Palace Grounds on the Bellary Road side from March 15. However, the entry points to Palace Grounds will not change.

A large number of vehicles enter and exit Palace Grounds during weekends and cause massive gridlocks on the road during peak hours.
