Mangaluru: Four-laning of highway between B C Road and Gundya begins


Daijiworld Media Network - Mangaluru (SP)

Mangaluru, May 26: L & T Company, to which the widening of national highway 75 between Gundya and B C Road has been entrusted, has begun the work of laying parallel concrete road to the existing road.

The officials said that the work, which was to begin last year, had to be deferred by a year on account of delay involved in land acquisition and shifting of electric poles, water pipe etc.

The stretch of the road now taken up for widening is 64 kilometre (km) long. The road work was to begin in March last year and completed by September 2019. The company has initially undertaken widening work for a stretch of 20 km. The work will be stopped during the rainy season, the contractors said. The contracting company also is facing the challenge of having to lay the concrete road even as traffic on the other side, which is normally dense, continues to flow.

During the widening, the road bends would be straightened wherever practicable and in case of road stretch passing through land of lower gradient, efforts would be made to increase its height to level the highway. As this road passes through forest area, the total width of the road will be confined to 30 metres in forest areas and 45 metres in other places, it is gathered.

Thousands of trees and plants belonging to forest, national highway and horticultural department have been axed to pave way for this road widening.

    For years repairs of National highway at Shiradi ghat is being done every year and NH is closed for public for few months. Why can't they do in one go ? Govt has all highway yojana's having fancy names like Bharatmala, Sagarmala .... Even the four laning of Suratkal - Udupi stretch of NH-66 is not fully complete yet.

    People have blind faith in large companies like L&T. Unfortunately all this big companies subcontract the work to smaller ones and make money. Quality is always compromised.
    Example: Mumbai Pune express way built by L&T had large patches of pot holes in concrete slabs in Lonavla Khandal area. Who work had to be redone.
    There was a major accident in Mumbai Airport area while constructing the flyover. The girder fell down causing damages and loss of life. How the subject got patched up can be imagined. If it was smaller company the subject would have been blown out of proportions.

    Of course the four laning of BC Road and Gundya Project is a must. But the problem is any projects undertaken should be completed within a short time instead of dragging years together, If this method is followed then everybody will appreciate. Please bear this in mind.

    I endorse this development work. But i'd appreciate if the discarded road sections are dug up and re-forested.

    Don't know why people are praising Nalin here ?

    Gadkari is one of the great leader under Modi who is giving his 100% result whatever he announced.

    Thanks to Gadkari.

    Coastal People are not dumb . People see the development and elect the MLA’s and MP’s. If no development they will change the leaders. No political party can no longer fool people. So all political parties remain same to common man. We need to see development!

    At least the toll rates are lower here than that of Dubai and the people will pay without any protest in Dubai.

    Kishore Kumar, Mangaluru, FYI, in Dubai Toll is charged for particular road is for reducing the Traffic, not for recover the cost of the road. If we don't want to pay the Toll, we can drive alternative roads.

    Appreciate your loyalty to Sidhu & co and Congress, but your letter shows your ignorance of the facts and animoisty to BJP. National highways are built by the funds given by Central government, only responsibility for state government is to ensure the needed land for which acentral government pays state government. The delay in ution was due to delay in acquiring the land needed by the state government. So where is the question applauding the great act of Congress party & co
