Mangaluru, Apr 15: The work on the much-awaited railway underbridge (RUB) at Padil-Bajal is going on at a brisk pace and is likely to be completed by this month end.

Former union minister for railways Sadananda Gowda, who is now the law minister, had promised to complete the work by February 2015 while laying the foundation in August last year. However, the work was hindered due to various technical reasons.

The railway department now plans to finish the work in the next few weeks and have it ready by month end or latest by May first week.

Speaking to daijiworld, the civil engineer Raju Nadar on the site said, "More than 40 technical experts and labourers are working day and night to complete the work. If necessary, we will deploy more labourers for the work in order to finish it without further delay."

He also said that the underbridge is being constructed by box pushing technique. The constructed RUB will be 30 m in length, 7.15 m in height and 12.6 m in width. There will be footpaths and drainage systems on either sides of the underbridge road.

Speaking to daijiworld over the phone, DRM of Palakkad division Anand Prakash said, "We are planning to complete the work by the end of April. There is still 20 m push pending. The railway department will finish all its work related to the RUB by this month end."

While the railway department completes the RUB work, it is the Mangaluru City Corporation (MCC) that has to finish the work on approach roads.

Speaking to the daijiworld, MCC corporator Vijaykumar Shetty said, "Immediately after the railway department completes the work on construction of the RUB, the MCC will start concreting the approach roads. The department was supposed to complete the work in February but due to technical problems, the work got delayed."

The project has been taken up on cost sharing of 50:50 between the state and union government. The estimated cost of the project is Rs 5.68 crore, out of which MCC has provided Rs 51 lac.

Let's hope the work indeed completes by this month end, so that a long-cherished dream of the locals is materialized without further delay.

    First, Minister Sadananda Gowda promised the project to complete by Feb. But due to ‘technical’ problems it got delayed. Then the MCC corporator Vijaykumar Shetty said the approach road was delayed due to ‘technical’ reasons. Civil engineer Raju Nadar says more than 40 ‘technical’ experts are working round the clock to complete it.

    Now the Bajal, Jelligudde per cent cost rs.3.50 lacs, once it is completed, the price of these lands may zoop to double within a very short time. This is the only land in Mangalore more or less, we get flat land. The holders of this area land will going to flourish.... I heard that, builders flow to these areas, since it it very near to Mangalore main.

    Really nice to hear that, work is going on by Box pushing technique. Its an good idea to use this technique. But my question is, when i saw the hurry of job in last minute, is it quality of work is safe & even paln to make adjacent concreting road for vehicles. Because in top of over-bridge, heavy train is passing is maximum speed.
    Give thanks to Railway Board & MCC.
    Forget politicians.. Just ask politicians that, how much % commission get for approval..??

    Ijji anna.. This porject was released long way back. This is one of Kateel's achievement in the first term MP. Project was passed then but due to elections this was on hold. Now after DV became Railway minister this project got on track and here it is. With all due respect search for facts then talk i feel.

    Jossey Saldanha, Mumbai dude the work was done with the intiative of Nalin and DVS. Learn to appreciate when someone does a good job. There are many burning commentators in this forum including you who are passing negative comments saying that land price in that area will increase. They have to think themselves that in which part of mangalore the land price is less now.
