Bengaluru Airport Commuters Fume Over Flooded Corridors

The incessant rain on Monday evening caused severe waterlogging in Bengaluru Airport, inconveniencing the passengers. Travelers to and from Kempegowda International Airport were stuck in traffic for hours due to massive water congestion.

In an X post, Bengaluru’s Joint Commissioner of Police for Traffic stated, ‘Waterlogging on the KIA elevated corridor at Kodigehalli is affecting incoming traffic towards the city (Hebbal junction). Diversions have been set up near the railway bridge, and vehicles should use the service road. Commuters are requested to cooperate.’

Commuters vented their frustration on social media over waterlogged toll roads. A user Rajiv questioned, ‘How can an elevated bridge flood? No drainage? Thanks to the construction companies.’

Sunil, another user added, ‘Under the flyover from Allalasandra to Jakkur, broken water hoses cause water to gush down. NHAI needs to maintain these tolled roads to the airport, but there’s no effort.’

Additionally, heavy rain hit several parts of Bengaluru, including the north and east, on Monday evening. Commuters faced difficulties getting home from work, prompting traffic police to issue multiple advisories about traffic diversions.
