BANGALORE: Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa said on Tuesday that eight underpasses would be constructed to make Hosur Road - between Vellara Junction and Silk Board Junction - signal-free.
He was speaking after inaugurating the newly-constructed underpass near Aiyappa Temple in Madivala.
"In order to make Hosur Road signal-free eight underpasses will be constructed at the cost of Rs 58 crore. The government is determined to ease traffic congestion in the city and in another three years, 11 roads will be made signal-free," he said.
Yeddyurappa also said the white topping technology - used to lay road at the newly-constructed underpasses - would last for 25 to 30 years. "This technology costs just 20 per cent more than asphalting. Therefore, I have instructed officials to adopt this technology while laying roads in the future."
"Blueprint for projects worth Rs18,000 crore is ready and they will be completed within three years. The government is also closely monitoring works on the Mono Rail and circular train projects. The city will have world-class facilities within three years," he said.
The newly inaugurated underpass was constructed within 58 working days at the cost of Rs 8 crore. Yeddyurappa also inaugurated a pedestrian subway, constructed at the cost of Rs 2.3 crore, near Town Hall and inaugurated a Vanamahotsava programme, below Domlur flyover.
