BENGALURU:  It was the third incident at the same spot. A pothole took yet another life on Devarabeesanahalli flyover in Bellandur on Thursday Night. Stuti Pandey lost her life after she fell off a bike while her husband, Omprakash, was trying to avoid a pothole. As he was doing so, he lost balance and fell which proved to be fatal for Stuti. 

The area which houses several software companies has traffic flow 24 hours. “It is a common sight here. The roads are very poor. The condition worsens during rains when the water clogs the road and fills the potholes,” said Srinivasa, a shop-keeper. The roads are also poorly lit at nights, making the conditions worse.

“A lot of people have close shaves due to  bad roads. The authorities have covered the spot with cement mix and stones which has made it dangerous,” said Shekhar, a techie, who travels on the road often.

There is a need for sign boards on the road. There is no speed limit boards or pedestrians crossing sign. “The local hospitals have many accident cases from this area due to poor roads,” said Aman Kumar, a shop owner.
