Mysuru is more than just a weekend getaway for Bengalureans. Being the second-largest and the third most populated city of Karnataka state, the roads of Mysuru are also one of the most used by frequent commuters to and from Bengaluru. However, the time taken to travel between these two major cities is a matter of great concern. It takes a harrowing 3.5 hours to cover the distance of 145 km between the 2 cities that have NH 275 running through them. But in recent developments, NHAI will be starting the much awaited Bengaluru-Mysuru highway project, as confirmed by Public Works Minister, Shri HD Revanna.
The highway project that was approved in 2014 is all set to get started in a few weeks. As per the NHAI project plan Cheap Pavel Buchnevich Jersey , the highway is to contain tolled 10-lane roads and 6-lane carriageways, and untolled 2-lane service lanes. There will also be flyovers, built at Bidadi and Srirangapattana, and bypass roads at Ramanagaram, Channapattana and Mandya. The project is scheduled to be completed in a period of 18 months.
Honourable Chief Minister of Karnataka, Shri HD Kumaraswamy recently held a meeting with the concerned state officials, PWD officers and officers from the Energy and the Forest Departments. With the project soon taking off from both Bengaluru and Mysuru, the meeting addressed some hurdles that needed to be cleared off before the commencement of the highway building. The Department of Energy demanded 15% of the total project cost for shifting utilities. However Cheap Brady Skjei Jersey , NHAI remained firm as to not let the same exceed 2.5% of the project cost.
