The to-be-launched road will not have entry and exit ramps, as the land acquisition on these points are not completed “due to non-cooperation by certain officials”.

The first 9 kms of the peripheral ring road taken up by Nandi Infrastructure Corridor Enterprise (NICE) will be thrown open to the public on June 16, NICE Managing Director Ashok Kheni said on Tuesday.

The stretch, between Kengeri on Mysore Road to Talgattapura on Mysore Road, via Banashankari VI Stage comes under the first phase of the Bangalore-Mysore Infrastructure Corridor project.

However, the to-be-launched road will not have entry and exit ramps, as the land acquisition on these points are not completed “due to non-cooperation by certain officials”.

A toll of about Rs 10 will be charged from road users, and the journey time, according to Mr Kheni, will be eight minutes.

‘Can’t stop us’

Revealing this at a talk on ‘Bangalore-Mysore Infrastructure Corridor- A reality’ organised by Rotary Club Orchards on Tuesday, Mr Kheni said vested interests in the government will not stop them, and the entire first phase, from Mysore Road to Hosur Road will be open to the public by August.

‘Posters of apology’ have been planned by NICE, which will tender a public apology for not building certain sections of the road, due to hurdles in the land acquisition process. The names and numbers of officers who are not co-operating will be mentioned in the posters.

Appealed

Mr Kheni appealed to the public “to call these officers in the middle of the night and ask them to transfer the land”.

However, Mr Kheni refused to disclose when these posters will be put up. “It will be a surprise,” he said.

Mr Kheni also invited Rotarians to open five training centres for villagers who are being affected due to the infrastructure project. He also asked the Rotary Clubs to open schools in these villages.
