BANGALORE (Metro Rail News): The BMRCL has proposed a skywalk linking the Banashankari Metro Station with the BMTC terminal, which will provide safe space for street sellers and a pedestrian route.

A report published in September 2019 titled ‘Traffic chaos reigns over Banashankari Signal, a no-man’s-land,’ Bangalore South MP Tejasvi Surya and Revenue Minister R Ashoka visited the area in November of that year and suggested officials propose a skywalk connecting the metro and the BMTC terminal.

The idea is to restructure the present intersection, improve traffic flow, and add a traffic island where trees can be planted. In addition, a circular skywalk with loops will connect the bus terminal and metro station at the intersection. “This Skywalk will be a lively public place packed with flora and resting pods, setting it unique from the usual foot over bridges we see in the city.

On the ground and in the air, it will connect and enhance the pedestrian experience at the intersection, “According to a brief that accompanied the project design. The current junction design is simply the leftover space from the numerous renovations that have taken place at this location throughout the years.

As a result, the intersection is a nightmare for pedestrians who must manoeuvre through heavy traffic, with weirdly formed traffic islands and pedestrian crossings that leads nowhere. Venkataramanan Associates, a city-based architecture firm, created the skywalk’s design
