The infrastructure projects getting delayed in India is something pretty common, though the things have changed a little yet still there are many cases in which we have seen that the project remains incomplete even after deadline and budget get revised twice or thrice.
Ejipura Flyover in Bengaluru which connects the 2.5 km stretch from Sony World Junction to Kendriya Sadan started in 2017 with a deadline of 30 months but it is under-construction till the date. The project got halted for more than two years after the contractor got bankrupt and the authorities were not able to sort out the legal issues for a long time. Now the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) has floated a fresh tender for completing the project and hopefully it will be completed soon.
While such delayed projects create troubles in the lives of commuters by causing long traffic jams, slow traffic, etc., sometimes they have a positive effect as well. The under-construction Ejipura Flyover is all over the Internet as a Reddit user shared his story as per which he met his wife because of this project. He stated that he met his wife near Sony World Signal whom he knew as a friend only at that time and he was just dropping her home but they both got stuck in traffic. He added that as they were hungry, they diverted and had dinner together nearby.
He further revealed that they dated for three years and for two years now, they are married but this 2.5 km flyover is still not completed. A Twitter user shared the post from Reddit on the micro-blogging site:

No, not the love story but the forever under-construction flyovers.
Had experienced a similar fate of Domlur flyover, guess that road is jinxed https://t.co/NOUYiSmHAt

that is nothing, a road here was under repair for over a decade. I finished school, college and few year into my job when it got fully repaired and re-laid.

Well, if this flyover doesn’t get completed for 2-3 years more, we may get to hear some more love stories! What do you think?
