Gadkari reveals Rs 4,000 crore highway projects in Karnataka

Union Minister for Road Transport and Highways Nitin Gadkari inaugurated and laid the foundation stone for 22 National Highway projects in Karnataka’s Mysuru, totaling 268 km and worth over Rs 4,000 crore. The projects aim to enhance connectivity and reduce travel time in the region.

These projects include the construction of the Huliyar-KB cross-Chunchanahalli-Nelligere road to improve connectivity between Mysuru and North Karnataka. The Mysuru Ring Road, along with service roads, will address congestion and ensure smoother traffic flow in the area.

The 4-lane expansion of Belur-Hassan and Yedegowdanahalli-Bilikere road, along with the installation of road overbridges at Hangarahalli and Holenarasipur bypass, is expected to reduce travel time by 2 hours. Additionally, the construction of a major bridge over Lakshmanathirtha River will help decongest Hunsur Town and support urban planning efforts.

The development of Srinivasapura and Chintamani bypasses aims to alleviate congestion in both cities. The inclusion of major and minor bridges, as well as road-over bridges on railway-level crossings, highlights the government’s effort to ensure smooth traffic movement in the region. Nitin Gadkari’s initiative marks a significant step towards improving infrastructure and connectivity in Karnataka.
