Passengers from the BTM layout can use the rising ramp to enter Outer Ring Road (towards the HSR layout) and Hosur Road.
A double-decker flyover is operational from Ragigudda to Central Silk Board, with the lower level designated for motor vehicles and the upper level for metro trains.

BMRCL reported that the construction of ramps connecting the double-decker flyover to the Outer Ring Road (ORR) and Hosur Road is in progress, managing the flow in collaboration with the traffic police. Additionally, four U-shaped spans, each 100 meters long, are under construction.

BMRCL has facilitated concrete sourcing from two plants, Lakkasandra and Agra, at an estimated cost of Rs 150 crore to ease traffic congestion at Silk Board Junction.
A 3.4 km ramp with 106 pillars will be constructed as part of a road infrastructure project.
