Bangalore To Add Suburban Centers To Ease Growing Pains

Tired of congestion and looming water shortages in the central city, the government has approved plans to develop two new ring roads around Bangalore. The roads are intended to trigger growth of five new satellite towns, all in the next three years.

"The Government has approved a proposal of the Bangalore Metropolitan Regional Development Authority (BMRDA) to form five satellite towns and link them with a ring road and an intermediate ring road."

"...[Chief Minister] Mr. Kumaraswamy exuded confidence that the project would go a long way in decongesting Bangalore. The demand for industrial land around Bangalore, particularly that from information technology units, would substantially come down since the new towns would be well connected by four-lane and six-lane roads."
