The 9.985 km long 10 lane mixed corridor Elevated Highway
on NH7, Hosur Road, between Silk boad junction and Electronic City is India's longest Elevated Highway. The toll system is now operational. The elevated stretch has brought down the commuting time to less than 15 minutes from Silk Board to Electronic City. NICE Road
(Bangalore Mysore Infra Structure Corridor) connects NH7 to Bannerghatta Rd. Bommasandra, Attibele, Jigani and Veerasandra
are the other industrial areas along Hosur Road. Hosa Road
connects Hosur Road to Sarjapur Road. Hosur is about 25 km South of Electronic City. The highway to Chennai
starts at Krishnagiri, just after Hosur.
which connects Electronics City to Bannerghatta Road sees heavy traffic throughout the day. This road which is just outside the boundary of the industrial township, is ridden with pot-holes and awaits repair. Commute on this road is a harrowing experience esp. during rainy season for thousands of techies who have bought their dream homes in gated communities along this road.
