SH 17 to be upgraded as national highway

Quote:
Staff Correspondent

Cost of the project estimated at Rs. 443.87 crore

125.52-km stretch to be a two-lane road

Highway connecting Mysore and Nanjangud will be upgraded: Dhruvanarayana


MYSORE: The Union Ministry of Shipping, Road Transport and Highways will upgrade State highway 17, connecting Mysore and Ooty, to national highway 212.

Starting from Kerala border, NH 212 will pass through Gundlupet, Nanjangud, Mysore, T. Narsipur and join NH 209 at Uttamballi Junction in Kollegal taluk of Chamarajanagar district.

The decision to upgrade SH 17 to NH 212 was taken at a meeting of the Standing Finance Committee held on April 15. Disclosing this at a press conference, Chamarajanagar MP R. Dhruvanarayana said that two-laning of NH 212 would be taken up on design, build, finance, operate and transfer (DBFOT) basis with private-public participation at an estimated cost of Rs. 443.87 crore.

He said that 125.52-km stretch of the 151-km-long NH 212 would be a two-lane road. The Union Ministry of Shipping, Road Transport and Highways issued a notification in this regard on April 28, Mr. Dhruvanarayana said.

According to the notification, 125.52-km stretch of the highway that passes through Bandipur forest, Gundlupet town limits and leading to Nanjangud would developed as a two-lane road with a width ranging from 7 m to 10 m, he said. The highway connecting Mysore and Nanjangud, which was in a bad shape would be developed as a two-lane road with a width 15 m. Two bridges would be constructed as part of the upgrading project, the MP said.

Five companies had been identified to execute the project and July 5 had been fixed as the deadline for the companies to submit finance proposal. The land acquisition process had already started and Rs. 30 crore earmarked for the purpose, he said. “In all probability, work on upgrading the highway will commence by November,” he said.

NH-4

I travelled from Davangere to Bengaluru on May 2nd. Except work on a major bridge near Chitradurga and asphalting of a few short stretches, most of the work of C'Durga-Harihara section has been completed.

Update from NHAI website (full map with details)

http://nhai.org/nhdpmain_english.htm

The web admin has made a mistake in uploading a NH-4 map this month.
Instead of Chennai-Mumbai, he has uploaded Delhi-Mumbai map.

19 KM ring road in Bellary thrown open to traffic

Relief at last for residents of Bellary city

Quote:
Staff Correspondent

End to heavy vehicles problem in sight as second phase of ring road is ready for use

The stretch is 11-km-long and connects Hospet Road and Bangalore Road

Rs. 90 crore spent on ring road so far; toll chargeable from vehicles

BELLARY: People from Bellary can look forward to some relief with the district administration planning to throw open the second part of the ring road from National Highway 63 on Hospet Road to traffic on Wednesday. This will free the city of heavy vehicular movement, and consequently noise and air pollution.

Ever since the iron ore boom in 2002, the movement of heavy vehicles had swelled by over tenfold. In the absence of a ring road/bypass, over 10,000 lorries transporting ore towards Chennai, Vishakapattanam and Salem had to pass through the city every day. Due to the ban on movement of iron ore-laden vehicles during day time, the city is flooded with such carriers from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. every day, putting people living in nearby areas to severe hardship.

As a result of this traffic surge, the city's air has been polluted beyond measure. Demands for respite from this ordeal fell on deaf ears for many years, with elected representatives not bothering to do anything.

Towards bringing about a solution to the problem, Mullangie Ravindra Babu, then Chairman of the Bellary Urban Development Authority (BUDA), during the Janata Dal (S)-BJP regime, came out with a proposal to request farmers to donate land for a ring road, and in turn, BUDA would give them permission to use up to 150 feet on either side of the road for commercial use. After repeated discussions and persuasion, the farmers agreed to part with their land.

By then, the coalition government fell apart and the BJP came to power. Tourism Minister G. Janardhan Reddy took the proposal forward and funds were sanctioned for the project.

The foundation stone for work on the first phase of the ring road was laid on August 15, 2008.

In the first phase, it was decided to develop 7.2 km of ring road between Halkundi on the Bangalore Road and Kakka Bevinahalli on the Anantapur Road, on Design-Build-Operate and Transfer (DBOT) basis. Even as the ‘pucca' road was being laid, heavy vehicles from Bangalore to Andhra Pradesh were allowed to pass through, bringing some relief to people residing between the APMC area on the Bangalore Road and the Taranath Ayurveda College on Anantapur Road. However, the residents near Cowl Bazaar and TB Sanatorium areas continued to suffer as lorries had to pass that way to join the first part of the ring road.

The second part of the road, a 11-km stretch from Hospet Road to Bangalore Road, is ready and will be inaugurated by Chief Minister B.S. Yeddyurappa on Wednesday.

A sum of Rs. 90 crore has been spent on the 19-km long ring road which covers 137.12 acres of land. Toll will be collected from vehicles passing through it.

Three highways to be upgraded

Quote:
Special Correspondent

Two highways provide connectivity to Maharashtra, A.P.

Hyderabad-based contractor's proposal approved

GULBARGA: Two inter-State highways providing connectivity to Maharashtra and Andhra Pradesh and a State highway that is in a bad condition in the district will be upgraded.

Waghdhari-Ripponpalli inter-State highway connecting Andhra Pradesh and Maharashtra, Chowdapur-Hosur inter-State highway connecting Maharashtra, and the State highway connecting Yadgir and Sedam will be upgraded. Official sources told The Hindu here on Thursday that these roads would be upgraded to the national highway standards at a cost of Rs. 391 crore. While the Waghdhari-Ripponpalli inter-State highway would be built on a build own operate and transfer (BOOT) basis at a cost of Rs. 240 crore, the Chowdapur-Hosur inter-State highway would be built at a cost of Rs. 79 crore. Yadgir-Sedam State highway would be built at a cost of Rs. 72 crore, they said.

The Chowdapur-Hosur inter-State highway and Yadgir-Sedam State highway will be upgraded using funds from the Central Road Fund (CRF). Union Minister for Labour M. Mallikarjun Kharge has taken personal interest to get funds sanctioned for these two roads from the CRF at the instance of Sedam MLA Sharanprakash Patil. Mr. Patil, who has been pursuing the long-pending proposal to upgrade Waghdhari-Ripponpalli inter-State highway, said the Government had approved a proposal submitted by a Hyderabad-based contractor with 40 per cent financial viability by the Union and State governments. The final agreement would be signed in Bangalore on Friday.

As per the proposal, the contractor should complete the project to upgrade 140 km to the national highway standards in two years. The contractor would own the road for 30 years and collect toll to meet 60 per cent of the cost which he had invested. The State and Union governments would share the remaining 40 per cent of the cost.

Mr. Patil said 52 km of the highway linking Yadgir and Sedam would be upgraded at a cost of Rs. 72 crore and 10 per cent of the cost would be shared by the State. The Chowdapur-Hosur road would be upgraded at a cost of Rs. 79 crore. The State had taken up work on the road from Gulbarga to Chowdapur under the Karnataka State Highways Improvement Project II, and connecting Chowdapur and Hosur would provide upgraded connectivity to Afzalpur, Karajgi, Mashal, Mannur and other towns.

SIX-LANING OF OUTER RING ROAD: WORK IN PROGRESS
Quote:
Rs. 219 cr. for 32.21 km stretch of road

Mysore, June 12 (RK&KMC)- The work on upgrading the Outer Ring Road (ORR) of the city to six-lane road is in progress.


Fast emerging as the second biggest city after Bangalore in the State, Mysore, also a popular tourist destination, is witnessing increase in the number of vehicles. Keeping this in mind, the ORR was constructed at a cost of Rs. 50 crore by MUDA during the tenure of Sandesh Nagaraj (presently MLC) as the Chairman.

The four-lane stretch of 7.49 kms distance on the eastern side linking the Mysore-Bangalore highway and the two-lane stretch of 24.72 kms distance will be upgraded to six-lane road (for a total distance of 32.21 kms) under the project.

The ORR upgrading work has been taken up at a total cost of Rs. 21,902.50 lakh under the JnNURM project, for which the Central Government grant is Rs. 17,522 lakh while the State Government and the MUDA will chip in Rs. 2,190.25 lakh each. Presently, the Centre has released Rs. 4,380.49 lakh as the first instalment while the State Govt. and MUDA have released Rs. 547.56 lakh each.

The first phase of the work involves clearing the debris dumped on the right side of the ORR, filling low-lying areas with debris and soil, levelling the elevated portions, etc.

MUDA being the project implementing agency, contract has been awarded to KMC Private Limited, Bangalore, in four packages, with three years’ maintenance contract. The work, started since April 12 last, is expected to complete by Feb. 2011. Though Rs. 219 crore was earmarked for the project, the construction company has come forward to complete the work for Rs. 210.84 crore, it is learnt.

A sum of Rs. 2 crore will be spent on removing the existing metal streetlight poles from the road side and erecting them at the centre of the ORR and another Rs. 1 crore for shifting the concrete poles, work on which will be taken up under CHE-SCom supervision.

MUDA has prepared a Detailed Project Report for the stretch of ORR from Nanjangud Road to Bannur Road, which remains incomplete owing to land acquisition problems.

The Report will be submitted to the State Govt. shortly for approval, it is learnt. Once approved, the ORR would form a complete circle of six-lanes, for which another Rs. 100 crore is needed.

Salient features of the project

Three-lane roads of 11 metres width on either side of existing ORR, 5.50 metre wide service road, 3 metre wide central median, 1.50 metre wide intermediate median on either sides, utility crossing at every 500 metre distance, bus shelters at every 2 kms distance, 3.10 metre wide footpath on either sides, street lights along the median, paving blocks and protection works at the junctions and inter-junctions, 1x1.20 metre intermediate drains, 69 CD works and three bridges.
