I have read of some big project happening in a place called Haldipur near Honnavar, but do not know much about it. In any case, Karnataka must plan for tunnelling the Bangalore - Honnavar highway near Jog falls and Hubli - Ankola highway near Yellapur. Haldipur, Tadadi, Belekeri and Karwar (Baithkol) ports would be the major beneficiaries.

Yes this will be a big boast for NMPT and the very thing is this will be economically viable,I think the traffic projection may cross 10000 PCU's as demanded by JICA for funding once the Four laning is done from Hassan till BC Road with tunneling in place.
I expect more traffic from the hinterland areas and rerouting of cargo destined towards Chennai port and also more number of bus services through the route once the entire Four Laning is done from BC Road end towards Hassan

Commercial activities are one part of the story. I feel that tourism would also receive a major boost with good roads, as coastal districts were known to be some of the major tourist centers in the state even before commercial activities picked up in those regions to the extent that we can see today. Hassan, the major linking point for several destinations such as Mangalore, Udupi, Dharmasthala, Subrahmanya, Chikmagalur, Sringeri, Horanadu etc. would develop not only as a tourist center but also as a city of significant commercial importance, given that it is a point of concurrence for highways from all 3 major cities in South Karnataka, Bangalore, Mangalore and Mysore.

Karnataka to get JICA aid for Rs 4,300 cr road project

Quote:
After getting financial assistance from the Japan International Cooperation Agency, action will be taken to implement the project

The Karnataka government would begin work on the 65-km long Peripheral Ring Road project (PRR Phase-1) from Tumkur road to Hosur road after completion of the land acquisition process. The project, estimated to cost Rs 4,300 crore, involves financial assistance from the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), chief minister Siddaramaiah said here today.

Responding to a question from S R Vishwanath of the BJP in the legislative assembly, here on Tuesday, he said a team of officials from JICA would be visiting the state soon to hold discussions with the state government in this regard. The project cost involves land acquisition cost and construction apart from intelligent transport system.

He said the road project was planned in 2005 and the state government had issued preliminary notification to acquire land. Later, in 2007, the final notification for land acquisition was issued. So far, 1,810 acres had been acquired for the project.

The farmers had challenged land acquisition for the project in the court. The High Court double bench has issued an order in favour of the government on July 15, 2013, he said.Siddaramaiah said the proposed road starts from Tumkur road and joins Hosur road crossing over Doddaballapura road, Bellary road, Old Madras road, and Sarjapura road. Under Phase-1 the road will have a width of 75 metres as against the earlier plan of 100 metres. The government will allot sites to landlosers or compensation, whichever is opted by the farmers.

"The Japan International Cooperation Agency has agreed to provide financial assistance to the Rs 4,300 crore project. Once the land acquisition process is completed and after getting financial assistance from JICA action will be taken to implement the project," he said.

Replying to another question from K S Puttannaiah of the Karnataka Rajya Raitha Sangha, the chief minister said they were considering to make rainwater harvesting mandatory for all buildings in Bangalore.

Puttannaiah pointed out that Coimbatore city in Tamil Nadu had done a good job of tapping rain water. He said, water consumption in Bangalore city is set to rise significantly in the coming years with the rise in population.

Speaker Kagodu Thimmappa suggested the government should come out with a Perspective Plan for Bangalore in view of the huge growth of the city. He also suggested developing satellite towns around Tumkur, Ramanagar, Chikkaballapur and Hoskote among others.

After reading the development just a few minutes back in the KSRTC thread (posted by Pavan), another thing that I would love to see happening here is that the amount of toll for private buses must be at least 100% higher than that for the KSRTC. This would sort of discipline all those people who are holding Mangalore, Udupi and Kundapur to ransom. Let the people at the toll plaza throw the blame on the decision making bodies in Bangalore and relax; hopefully that would ensure that life is not as easy as it is now, for these greedy people.

Oscar to launch work on Gulbarga—Gooty NH on July 30

Union Railway Minister M. Mallikarjun Kharge has said that Union Surface Transport Minister Oscar Fernandes will launch work on a national highway to connect Gulbarga with Gooty (Andhra Pradesh). The road will also join National Highway 7 that connects Hyderabad and Bangalore, on July 30.

Upgrading highway
Speaking after launching work on track doubling between Gulbarga and Hotgi (Maharashtra) railway stations here on Tuesday, Mr. Kharge said that more than Rs. 920 crore would be spent on upgrading the existing State highway passing through Yadgir and Raichur districts and entering Andhra Pradesh at Mantralayam and touching NH 7 at Gooty. Mr. Kharge said that Mr. Fernandes would also launch work on the Rs. 76-crore inter-State ‘economically important’ highway from Hosur on the Maharashtra border to Chowdapur via Afzalpur town in Gulbarga district on the same day. The project is funded by the Union government and the existing road will be upgraded to the national highway standard.


Stressing the need for more development schemes to rectify regional imbalance in Hyderabad Karnataka, Mr. Kharge said this could not be brought about with the help of a magic wand. It required commitment and hard work coupled with commitment.


Mr. Kharge said the Railways had also approved the proposal to upgrade the railway stations in Shahabad, Wadi, Chittapur and Sedam in Gulbarga district; Yadgir, Nalwar and Saidapur in Yadgir district and Raichur in Raichur district. The work would be taken up in phases.

‘Too many zones’
He said one of the difficulties in improving the railway network in Gulbarga district was that the region was under the Central, South Central and South Western Railway.
We are making efforts to bring Gulbarga region under one Railway zone,” he said.

Railway Board Member Subodh Jain said the atmosphere in Karnataka was conducive to improving the railway network and Karnataka was a pioneer when it came to accepting cost-sharing concept with the Railways to take up new projects.


At present, there were 13 projects that had been taken up on cost-sharing basis. He said that owing to Mr. Kharge’s initiative, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Finance Minister P. Chidambaram released Rs. 600 crore to take up new railway projects in Northeastern States and provided another Rs. 300 crore to Karnataka to fund ongoing projects.

Minister will also launch work on the Rs. 76-crore Hosur–Chowdapur inter-State highway
Railways has also approved the proposal to upgrade eight railway stations

Decision on Shiradi Ghat tunnel soon

Quote:
The Centre will take a decision on the proposed tunnel route in the Shiradi Ghat section of Mangalore-Bangalore highway in three months, according to Union Minister for Road Transport and Highways Oscar Fernandes.

Mr. Fernandes told The Hindu on phone from New Delhi that the decision would be taken in consultation with the Karnataka government. “State Minister [for Public Works H.C.] Mahadevappa was here day before yesterday. He is very positive (about the project),” Mr. Fernandes said. The Minister, who reviewed the project with officials from the National Highway Authority of India (NHAI) in New Delhi recently, said he had asked for a project report from his department officials in a month’s time.

Saving travel time

The tunnel is expected to reduce the distance between Sakleshpur and Gundia from the present 26 km to 18 km and provide a straight road in place of the road with multiple hairpin bends, thereby saving travel time for vehicle users. Karnataka and the Centre are expected to share the project cost of Rs. 3,000 crore besides raising debt.

The proposal is to provide five small tunnels of a total of 7.7 kms in length and high-pier bridges totalling 10 km in length.

The new tunnel-cum-bridge road is expected to ensure smooth and hassle-free movement of vehicles. At present the Ghat Road between Gundia and Sakleshpur is often damaged during rainy season. So much so that government buses are sometimes ordered to avoid this route, particularly during monsoon.

Shared costs

Though the Japan International Consultancy Agency has come forward to fund the project, the Ministry is understood to be keen to ensure cost recovery and hence insisted on sharing the cost with Karnataka government.

NHAI is also considering widening of the road but building tunnels is considered a better option than expanding the existing highway as it entailed acquisition of forest lands.
