Rings around Bangalore

I said a month ago there were two peripheral ring roads planned for Bangalore. Increment that count by two please. As per that news article about BMRDA’s plan for fringe townships, we are going to have two more.

SATELLITE TOWNS RING ROAD (STRR)
Length: 284 km; 8- lane with 2-lane service road
Connects: Dobbaspet- Magadi- Ramanagaram- Kanakapura- Anekal- Hoskote- Devanahalli- Doddaballapur.
Land required: 6,303 acres
Estimated cost: Rs 1,150crore

And

INTERMEDIATE RING ROAD (IRR)
Length: 188 km; 8- lane with 2-lane service road
Connects: Nelamangala- Bidadi- Harohalli- Tattekere- Hoskote- Aradeshanahalli- Mylenahalli.
Land required: 4,182 acres
Estimated cost: Rs 750 crore

Just the way number of concentric rings in the stump tells you the age of a tree, these peripheral roads will live to tell the story of Bangalore’s growth!
