Driving in Malleswaram will be a curse for more than a year. Till last week, driving was never a problem. But ever since the Underpass work on 5th cross Malleswaram began from December 28th 2006, the chaos is gradually increasing. The two-ways have become one-ways and vice versa.
Ever since I was in First Standard, Margosa Road was always One way. Not any more. Pedestrians must be specially careful while crossing this road. Malleswaram 4th main was a broad road, good for pedestrians and motorists alike. Now this is one-way, with all buses plying here. The worrying factor is that there are five schools on this stretch.
The stretch from Sampige theatre towards Mohammedan Block was a two-way road. Since Sunday, one can only travel up this road and not the other way.
Malleswaram 8th cross has become a dangerous stretch for the shoppers, what with buses to Market, Shivajinagar and Majestic going down this road. One can see traffic on all smaller roads and even conservancies.
Pedestrians are shocked to see vehicles out of nowhere. Really, god save Malleswaram.
