Apart from its salubrious climate, beautiful parks, gardens, tree-lined roads, cosmopolitan nature and being a science and IT hub, what else is Bengaluru famous for? Its infamous traffic.

Various government departments got to work soon after and conducted inspections at seven problematic junctions and announced some short and long-term plans for each junction.
