Arrow Mysuru Outer Ring Road | 42.5 Km (32.2+9.5) | 6 Lanes + Service Rd | U/C

Mysore Outer Ring Road


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.

MYSORE:
Quote:
Mysore Urban Development Authority (MUDA) has resolved to widen the outer ring road (ORR) here to six lanes instead of eight, as proposed under the Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission (JNNURM). The amount saved will be used to complete the 9.5-km ORR stretch linking Bannur and Nanjangud roads.
Deputy Commissioner Harsh Gupta, who is also the chairman of MUDA, has asked officials to modify the project proposal and send it to the Government for approval. This was decided during a meet here recently to review the progress of works taken up under JNNURM.

At a recent meeting of the Road Safety Committee, some participants had said that widening of ORR and completion of the Bannur-Nanjangud stretch was important to ease traffic congestion in the city, a press release said here on Saturday. The decision had been taken after studying the traffic that was entering Mysore and taking into account growth of the city. “The decision to widen the road is expected to save Rs. 35 crore,” Mr. Gupta said.

6-lane Mysore outer ring road soon

PM News Bureau

Quote:
A 42-km long six-lane Outer Ring Road in Mysore city, Karnataka, being executed by Mysore Urban Development Authority, is expected to complete in the next seven to eight months.
Besides widening the existing 32.5-km ring road into a six-lane highway, the work also includes laying a 9.5-km missing link of the ring road between Mysore-Nanjangud highway and Mysore-Bannur highway. Muda has reached the final stage for acquiring 150 acres for laying this ring road with the authorities issuing a final notification in this regard. The work has been stalled for more than three years owing to a dispute over alignment of the stretch.
Muda will soon finalise tenders for widening the 32.5-km ring road into a highway at a cost of Rs 219 crore under Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission.

Why is the ring road not round?


Quote:
HC judge wonders why despite the technology, governments don’t build roads without triggering acquisition-related disputes

S Shyam Prasad

Posted On Tuesday, November 23, 2010 at 05:19:44 AM

Why can’t you take a compass and draw a perfect circle on the map and then build the ring road accordingly so that you spare the people from feeling discriminated,” Justice D V Shylendra Kumar asked the government advocate while hearing a case related to land acquisition for the 20-km long ring road across Mysore city. The remark led to an interesting exchange of ideas between the bench and bar on why there were unnecessary curves and diversions on ring roads.


“I do not understand why a ring road is never round. You build it haphazardly in a zigzag manner. Roads take a turn towards the sky and then towards the earth. Is this what they call a star shaped road instead of a ring road,” Justice Kumar said. The government advocate responded saying, “A perfect circle cannot be drawn for the ring road as there are lakes and other natural obstacles. In this case, there is the Chamundi Hill and we have to build the road around it.”

Justice Kumar said that there have been enough technological advances to overcome any obstacle. “What is wrong with drilling tunnels. Is it a bigger challenge than the tunnel that is being dug here (referring to the tunnel for the Metro that is being dug in front of the high court). Tunnels are being built under the seabed,” he observed.


Road realigned

A writ petition has been filed by a housing society in Mysore that 1 acre 15 guntas of its land has been acquired for the construction of a ring road by the Mysore Urban Development Authority (MUDA). They said that the path of the road has been realigned so that their land is used for the road. Further their appeal to the authorities for alternative land as compensation had been rejected. Nearly half of the 20 km ring road is yet to be completed.
When the government advocate said that there are lots of pulls and pressures and influence was sought to be used from the people whose land was being acquired, the judge said that there was no doubt that there was power play inside the authority itself.

Pulls and pressures

“The MLAs and MLCs of Mysore city are members of your body. And it becomes obvious from the shape of the ring road that there has been lots of pulls and pressures working. Has the government not given alternative land to any of the applicants before? People without bona fide qualifications would have been given land. You will have to place all the records,” the judge said.

The petitioners have challenged the provisions of the Karnataka Urban Development Authorities Act. The judge, in his order, said that the ring road was for public purpose and individual interests cannot come in the way of acquisition of land for it.
He asked the authorities to place before the court recommendations approved by the government to allot alternative land to others whose land has been acquired. He also asked for the plan sketches of the ring road to understand why the road was haphazard and not uniform and if there were any unnecessary curves or diversions.

Ass sense

The advocates for the petitioners argued that the present alignment of the road is straight through their land and this would not end up as a circular road. The judge said, “It is obvious that a straight line does not make a circle. My English teacher in school would scoff at teaching geometry. Even an ass chooses a straight line to reach its destination quickly. What is the point in studying it. Say something interesting. You could have argued in four paragraphs what you have submitted in 25.”
Bangalore Mirror

From 9.5 KM to 20 KM now--Road realigned.

Mods plz change the title replace 9.5 KM with 20 KM.

I am also not sure,have to confirm it.Western and north western ring road stretches have become as good as some internal roads,layouts have extended well beyond the ring road--Max: 11 KM -Sun city homes,Average Expansion: 4 Km from the Ring road.Hebbal,Belagola,Elivala etc etc are all far away from the ring road.Heard that an arc road is being considered to engulf the industrial units and link it to the main ring road.They should have pushed the ring road limits further away,missed an opportunity.

Look at the residential layouts

Mysore Intermediate Ring Road

Intermediate Ring Road
Quote:
The Intermediate Ring Road is not a new alignment. It is proposed along the existing roads only. It is proposed to increase the width along the entire stretch to 30 m. The Intermediate Ring Road starts from new Kantharaja Urs road, passes through Vishwamanava Double Road, Bogadi Road, Open Air theatre Road, Hunsur Road and Gokulam Road. The existing road passes through Manjunathapura, in front of Ideal Jawa up to Highway Circle and then passes through Bannimanatapa, old Bangalore-Mysore Road, Hyderali road, Karanji Tank Bund Road, Race Course road, Bangalore –Nilgiri Road, J.L.B Road to join Kantharaja Urs road. The width of this intermediate ring road along Kantharaja Urs road has been retained at 24 m, as many structures have come up on either sides of this road.

Will check out soon,I think the missing link has been realigned and some court cases are going on.
Rakshith the 4/2 laned(present) outer ring road is getting converted to 6 lane with service road on either side.It is a real treat to drive on the outer ring road with vast layouts,green median,hill view and highway like experience.
ORR will help Mysore in a big way,heard many commercial developments are awaiting to happen
