The state govern ment’s intention to convert the existing four-lane Bengaluru-Mysore expressway extending up to Nanjangud into six lanes has been temporarily halted.

The court has stayed further proceedings and the re-tendering process called towards the project in September 2008. Sensing the ever growing traffic on the BengalurueMysore route, the state had decided to convert the existing four lanes into six lanes including the construction of service roads on both the sides of the expressway.

Twelve Constructions Company had applied for the project and among the five short listed bidders, the petitioner, KMC Constructions Ltd, a Hyderabad based company stood as the highest bidder for the project. Later the state again decided to call for a re-tendering process, reportedly stating that it would create problems if the project is handed over to a single construction company.
