Nitin Gadkari Shares Breathtaking Pic Of Bengaluru-Mysuru Expressway Developed Under Bharatmala Project | Auto News

Expressways in India are developing at a rapid pace. The minister for road transport and highways – Nitin Gadkari, has been vocal about the new-age road infrastructure of the country, which will help in the booming economy. Gadkari has today shared the images of the just-opened Bengaluru-Mysuru Expressway, which is developed under the Bharatmala Project. Minister’s tweet reveals that the expressway is constructed at a total expenditure of Rs 8,478 crore.  Furthermore, the expressway gets a 6-lane carriageway, and there are 2-lane service roads on either side. The 10-lane access-controlled expressway is roughly 120 kilometres long, and it is claimed to bring down the travel time between two cities to just 90 minutes.

The expressway will be inaugurated on March 12 by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Earlier, Nitin Gadkari said, “Chennai and Bengaluru are the most important metro cities of the country. The expressway reduces the distance by 38 km and reduces the travel time from five hours to 2.15 hours. It will also reduce logistic cost by four to six per cent. We are also considering a forest underpass in the Bannerghatta forest area. If there is thick forest, then we will realign the route.” He further stated that Karnataka is an important state and decongestion of traffic in Bengaluru will be considered. The introduction of a double-decker sky bus with a capacity of 200 people will also be considered.
