Nitin Gadkari Unveils Highway Projects in Karnataka Worth Rs 4,000 Crore

Union Minister for Road Transport and Highways, Nitin Gadkari, inaugurated and laid the foundation stone for 22 National Highway projects covering a span of 268 km, with a total value exceeding Rs 4,000 crore in Mysuru, Karnataka, on Sunday.

Gadkari highlighted the significance of these projects in a social media post, mentioning initiatives like the Huliyar-KB cross-Chunchanahalli-Nelligere road, aimed at enhancing connectivity between Mysuru and North Karnataka. The introduction of the Mysuru Ring Road, complete with service roads, is expected to alleviate congestion and ensure smoother traffic flow.

Among the key projects are the 4-lane expansion of Belur-Hassan and Yedegowdanahalli-Bilikere road, accompanied by the installation of road overbridges at Hangarahalli and Holenarasipur bypass. These developments are projected to reduce travel time by a significant two hours.

A major bridge over Lakshmanathirtha River is in the works to decongest Hunsur Town, reflecting a commitment to streamlined urban planning. Furthermore, the construction of bypasses in Srinivasapura and Chintamani aims to alleviate congestion in both cities.

The plan also includes the strategic development of major and minor bridges, along with road-over-bridges on railway-level crossings, emphasizing a concerted effort to facilitate unhindered traffic movement. These initiatives underscore the government’s commitment to enhancing infrastructure and connectivity in the region.
