Madikeri link road work to begin next year

The road will help connect Kushalnagar in Kodagu to Paschimavahini in Srirangapatna

Once this road is completed, it will provide seamless connectivity between Bengaluru-Mysuru and Kodagu. Another highlight of this project is that it will completely create a new bypass for Mysuru as there will be a deviation (Greenfield Road) from Srirangapatna (near Bommuru Agrahara).

Bengaluru-Mysuru expressway set to open in Feb 2022

The Karnataka government has announced over 55% of the work on the Mysuru-Bengaluru Economic Corridor (Bengaluru-Mysuru expressway) has been completed and is set to be open in February 2022.

The economic corridor project between Bengaluru and Mysuru is being executed under Bharatmala Pariyojana phase-1 and is estimated to cost Rs 7,400 crore.

The expressway is being constructed under two packages – the first one runs from Bengaluru to Nidaghatta in Maddur taluk, which costs around Rs 3,000 crore, and the second package connects Nidaghatta to Myusuru and costs Rs 3,500 crore.

Dilip Buildcon, a Bhopal-based contractor, was awarded the contract for construction of both the packages – 56 km from Bengaluru to Nidagatta and 61 km from Nidagatta to Mysore.

More than 67.5% of the work has been completed in the first package, and 50.5% of the work has been completed in the second package, the state government informed.

Once the project is completed, the government said the expressway would reduce travel time from three hours to 90 minutes between the two cities.

The scope of the work also includes the construction of nine major bridges, 44 minor bridges and four road-over bridges and road-under bridges.

Three elevated corridors are being built, including a 5 km section in the outskirts of Bengaluru, a 3 km section in Maddur, and a third one in Srirangapatna.

The 10-lane highway also includes two service roads on either side and wherever the works have been completed, vehicles are being allowed to travel.

Forget Feb'22. I doubt whether it will be fully ready even by Dec 22. There is still lot of work pending on elevated stretches, Kengeri to Christ College & Maddur section. Mandya bypass entry, exits, Toll plazas etc. At Mys Ring road Columbia Hospital junction the flyover construction is yet to start. I am OK even if they finish by Dec'22 rather than unnecessarily rushing & compromising the quality of work.

A ride off the chart for Bengaluru bikers

A ride off the chart for Bengaluru bikers

.
Bengaluru-Mysuru expressway will be the first to ban motorcycles and ‘slow-moving’ vehicles.

The proposed Bengaluru-Mysuru highway is set to become the first expressway from the city to ban motorbikes entering the main carriageway.

Citing an increase in accidents involving motorbikes on the highways, the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) decided to keep two-wheelers off the six-lane highway.

Motorcycles may be permitted only on the service roads, according to the proposal. As the highway passes through a number of towns and villages, auto-rickshaws, tractors and other ‘slow-moving’ vehicles shall be barred too from the proposed corridor.

NHAI project director BT Shridhar said: “We are planning to ban two-wheelers and other slow moving vehicles once the expressway is operational. Two-wheelers and slow moving vehicles may cause hindrance to the other vehicles.”

An NHAI source said there have been many instances where bikers cut cross lanes, troubling other fast moving heavy vehicles.

“For instance, bikers often play tricks by obstructing heavy vehicles. Recently, many such videos have become viral. If a biker is in the middle of the lane on the extreme right side, it causes hindrance to the other vehicles,” said another official.

The NHAI wants to follow the Hyderabad model in Bengaluru roads. Currently, two-wheelers are not allowed on the Nehru Outer Ring Road in Hyderabad or the PV Narasimha Rao Expressway - the elevated highway that connects Mehdipatnam to the Rajiv Gandhi International Airport Road in Hyderabad.

This model was to be adopted on the Nelamangala expressway — even boards were put up initially banning motorcycles. However, owing to pressure, the order was withdrawn. There have been similar calls to ban motorcycles on the Electronics City Expressway where recently a few riders fell off the flyover.

Meanwhile, the proposal to ban motorcycles evoked a mixed response. Krishnamurthy M, a techie who frequently travels to Mysuru said: “Globally, bikes are not allowed on many expressways. We need to follow that standard on Mysuru Road as well.”

However, many bikers in the city are not happy. Santosh Kumar, an avid motorcyclist complained: “Many of us have expensive motorbikes and we travel long distances. We follow traffic rules. If we are made to ride on the service road which of course will have multiple humps and junctions, it is a bit unfair.”

Meanwhile, the Bengaluru-Mysuru section work has gathered pace after a ‘covid holiday’ and is now estimated to be completed by 2022. The works are divided into two phases; 51 per cent of the Bengaluru-Nidaghatta stretch has been completed while the Nidaghatta-Mysuru portion has only seen 30 per cent completion of works.

A 4.22-km flyover is being built near Panchamukhi Ganesha temple. The Bengaluru-Mysuru section will have 53-km-long Greenfield roads in the form of bypasses - Bidadi (7 km), Ramanagara-Channapatna (22 km), Maddur (7 km including 3.5 km of elevated highway), Mandya (10 km) and Srirangapatna (7 km). A new lay-by with amenities will be set up along the Ramanagar by-pass road.

Toll booths will come up at Kumbalgodu and Srirangapatna. Authorities have identified 69 junctions along the highway which will have 50 underpasses and 19 flyovers so that there are no crossings at grade junctions. When the project was announced in 2018, the cost was estimated at Rs 6,400 crore. Now, it has been revised to Rs 8,066 crore.
