Breathe easy, new projects are here

Breathe easy, new projects are here
The Times of India

Bangalore: Left carriageway of the underpass at Ramamurthynagar on Outer Ring Road, widened road between HAL corporate office to Kundalahalli junction and the left carriageway of the road over-bridge at Marathahalli will be thrown open for traffic on Friday. Chief minister H D Kumaraswamy will inaugurate the projects.
After opening the left carriageway, the BDA will take up work on the right carriageway. Similarly, the right carriageway work of Marathahalli over-bridge will commence after Friday.
The road from HAL to Kundalahalli cross is 5.13 km and at Marathahalli, Bangalore-Salem railway line crosses this road with a road overbridge. This road also gives connectivity to Airport from Electronic City and Whitefield. As such, the existing carriageway, which is undivided at some stretches, is not sufficient to cater even to the present day traffic. Hence the BDA decided to take up its widening at a cost of Rs 6.33 crore. It is now a 4-lane divided carriageway where pavements have been strengthened, parking space created on both sides of the road in Marathahalli limits, lane marking, road traffic signs and road furniture have been put.
The existing road over-bridge accommodates two-lane traffic of Airport Road and it was decided to build a new over-bridge with six-lane carriageway. Railways are implementing the project as a deposit contribution work.
The Ramamurthynagar underpass is a three-lane bi-directional carriageway and this is being implemented at a cost of Rs 17.46 crore.
