Major Sandeep Unnikrishnan Road




The Tale Of Two Peaks. Part 3.

The abandoned quarry at Chickabettahalli is a large bowl spread over over a hundred acres. It is pretty enough to be developed into a public space with interesting walkways, a little lake and clever lighting at night.






But the fact is that the Major Sandeep Unnikrishnan Road is a four lane road that provides easy access to the new airport to the western part of the city. So it's not surprising that the corner of the bowl is being filled up right now to make way for future development. The cost of transporting mud and filling up this massive crater is probably lower than the market rate for the land or is it one of the site chosen for dumping the Namma Metro earthwork?

Time will tell.

I've seen this quarry many times - same feelings as caught in your photos. The second photo one is superb - did you capture it in twilight?

Thanks. It was early in the morning on a cloudy day.
