BANGALORE: The Bangalore Metropolitan Region Development Authority (BMRDA) would commence work of first satellite town near Bidadi by May.

The Authority has planned five townships and Bidadi project is being taken up on a pilot basis, said BMRDA additional commissioner N Sriraman. He told this website's newspaper that these townships would be developed by private firms on a build-operate and-own (BOO) basis.

The bids for Bidadi township would be finalised in a couple of months and the developer would commence work from May, he said.

The Authority would only retain space for civic amenity, parks and playgrounds in 9,000 acre township which would be developed over next five years. The township would be developed on work-live-play model having independent airstrips and helipads. BMRDA has surveyed all the lakes in the area and they would be rejuvenated, Sriraman said.

Similar townships near Solur, Nandagudi, Sathanur and Ramanagaram would be taken up after finalising Bidadi project. Ramanagaram township would have a super speciality hospital and an institute of rural management.

However, another prestigious project, Airport Expressway is still at preliminary survey stage. The Expressway designed for a speed of 180 kmph stretches 21.2 km from Horamavu to Devanahalli International Airport.

The Expressway would have flyovers on Challakere and Boyihalli Tanks. Sriraman said that the Authority has sent a proposal to government seeking funds for land acquisition. Once the survey concludes, the land acquisition would be notified. In the second phase, BMRDA proposes to connect Expressway with BBMP’s Inner Core Ring Road.
