You may have to wait till Dasara before cruising on the Hosur road elevated highway. The project, earlier expected to be completed by March 2009, has now been rescheduled to September-end. A National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) official told Bangalore Mirror, “The last concrete work on Electronics City up-ramp was completed on Tuesday. From Thursday, the final layer of bitumen work is set to begin along with concretisation of expansion joints. We require two more months for pending works like electrification, hand railings, crash barriers and plantation.” The nine km-long highway, the longest in the city, will also have added features like highway traffic management system (HTMS), e-toll, emergency call boxes, CCTVs, Variable Message Service (VMS) and reversible lanes.
DELAYED PROJECT
The project began in July 2006 with a time frame of two-and-a-half years. Admitting the delay, the official said, besides financial issues, some technical and site-related issues led to the delay. A traffic expert said, “We expected the project to be completed by April-end. However, it is now likely to be delayed further.”
