A steel flyover on 0.30 acres is proposed to be built at Sivananda circle in Bangalore, drawing the ire of the residents. The residents came out in protest against the flyover claiming that it would further increase traffic jams on the road instead of solving them. This protest is one in a series of recent protests that Bangalore residents have undertaken against the Bangalore municipality for irresponsible infrastructure development. In 2016, another steel flyover project worth Rs.2000 crore was abandoned after citizen protest.
