On March 10, the Prime Minister’s Office released the following statement after the PM’s visit to Mandya: “The prime minister’s aim to ensuring top-notch connectivity across the nation has been demonstrated by the speed at which infrastructure projects are being developed. The Bengaluru-Mysuru Expressway will be dedicated to the country by the Prime Minister as this endeavour continues.”
The project entails widening NH 275 to six lanes through the Bengaluru-Nidaghatta-Mysuru segment. The 118 km long project’s development cost amounted to roughly 8480 crores. It will cut the distance between Bengaluru and Mysuru’s travel time in half, from approximately three hours to about 75. According to the press release, it will serve as a catalyst for socioeconomic development in the area.
The press statement highlighted the advantages of the Mysuru-Khushalnagar 4-lane motorway, saying “The Prime Minister will also lay the cornerstone for the four-lane roadway connecting Mysuru and Hushalnagar. The project, which spans 92 kilometres, would be developed for about 4130 crores. The project would be crucial in improving connection between Kushalnagar and Bengaluru and will reduce travel time from around 5 to only 2.5 hours.”
Nitin Gadkari had previously provided information on the connectivity project on Twitter.
“The construction of the #Bengaluru_Mysuru_Expressway, which encompasses a portion of NH-275, also entails the development of four rail overbridges, nine significant bridges, 40 minor bridges, and 89 underpasses and overpasses,” Mr Gadkari tweeted on twitter.
Mr. Gadkari said that this connectivity project will increase the region’s tourism potential in a different tweet.
“This ambitious project aims to improve accessibility to regions such as Shrirangpatna, Coorg, Ooty, and Kerala, thereby bolstering their tourism potential,” as the Minister tweeted.
According to a statement from the Prime Minister’s Office, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will travel to Karnataka on March 12 to dedicate and lay the cornerstones for projects worth over 16,000 crores.
