Bangalore Elevated Highway

Hello Every One,

This is my first blog, as i was thinking to start a blog i came up with an idea to start with the new stuff.

Recently in Bangalore, most anticipated elevated highway was opened for public use, as it is a joint venture by the Govt and Private sector, i was eager to ride my bike on the new elevated highway, so on Sunday (24/01) i hopped on my bike and got there as fast as i can, as i was warned by friend that there will be traffic. But my urge to visit the new highway was not back drafted by his warnings. I had expected that i had to pay toll to enter the highway, as i found out that there was no toll for couple of weeks as a promotional offer.

I got on to the elevated highway and started enjoying the view and open road, it felt like i was flying, (LOL) i though covering 10kms will take probably 15 min but to my astonishment it took me only 9 min to get to the other end, although vehicles had speed limitation of 80kms/hr.

In the middle of my joy ride i found that there was a truck lay by in the middle of the highway. Stopped my bike and started to look around as many had gathered to enjoy the view like me. All of them had there camera's and were taking photographs of the highway from the top, as i did't had a camera i just watched them click away.

After couple of minuets i got back on my bike and headed towards the exit. As i entered the Bangalore - Hosur Highway i stopped and took a U turn and headed back for the elevated highway. On the entering i found beautiful buildings of Infosys standing very tall and shiny. First thing that crossed my mind was "Boy if I had A Camera" !, enjoyed the view and started heading towards, Silk Board, as it was evening the sun was setting & stopped my bike in the nearest truck lay by to enjoy the sunset as it was most beautiful sunset i had ever saw in my city.

After getting off the highway, headed back to home, but found huge traffic on the way back. After all Bangalorians know how to manage in the traffic, got back home and just laid back on the chair and relaxed.

Sorry as i was not able to publish any pictures of the Elevated Highway and promise you that i will publish pictures of it ASAP...
