BANGALORE: The much delayed four-lane underpass at Magadi Road and West of Chord Road junction saw the light of day when Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa and Adichunchanagiri pontiff Balagangadharnatha Swamiji jointly inaugurated it on Wednesday.
The underpass is 530.3 meters long and was constructed at a cost of Rs 34.68 crore. It took nearly three years to complete the underpass, whose upper part is yet to be completed.
The underpass is named after Swamiji. Speaking on the occasion, Yeddyurappa said that,"BDA is undertaking developmental works on war footing. I have directe BDA authorities to take up road widening projects and complete them before the arrival of rainy season. I have also directed Metro officials to hasten up the Metro work." He said that the temples in the state are being given special attention after Krishnaiah Shetty has been assigned the Muzrai ministry.
Yeddyurappa informed that he is going to Tirupati on February 26 and the next day is his birthday.
On the occasion, he said, the Prime Ministerial candidate of BJP, L K Advani, will also be present to lay the foundation stone for the construction of a community centre.
