CM to set ball rolling for grade separator project

Grade separators on the congested Outer Ring Road will be a reality by next year. Chief minister Siddaramaiah will lay the foundation stone for the project on Thursday, following which the work will begin.


The proposed separators will come up at three junctions - ORR-Hunsur Road, ORR-Bengaluru-Mysuru road and near JSS College on Mysuru-Nanjangud road. Though eight proposals were submitted by the Mysuru Urban Development Authority (Muda), four were cleared. For starters, work will be taken up on three of them.


The project is estimated to cost Rs 77.26 crore, of which Rs 14.99 crore has been released in the first phase; the project is expected to be completed by October 2017. However, work will not begin on the grade separator proposed near KRS Road owing to technical problems, said Muda chairman K R Mohan Kumar.


Though Outer Ring Road is operational, Siddaramaiah will inaugurate it officially. "ORR was envisioned to divert traffic and entry of heavy motor vehicles to minimize congestion within the city. It spans 42km and was built under the Centre's JNNURM scheme at an estimated cost of Rs 252 crore. In the first phase and package 4 (Bengaluru road to Bannur road) a 7.49 km stretch was constructed in 2012, the remaining 34.045km stretch was completed two months ago," said Kumar. As of now, Muda is maintaining the road but once it is formally opened, the authority will the approach the government to know who will be in-charge of its upkeep in the days to come.


Inauguration of bhavans: On the same day, the CM will inaugurate Babu Jagajivan Ram Bhavan constructed at a cost of Rs 4.5 crore near Paduvarahalli and Maharshi Valmiki Bhavan built at a cost of Rs 4.92 crore.
