For providing better road connectivity and ease traffic congestion to the Kempegowda International Airport (KIA), the State Cabinet, on Wednesday, approved a ₹2,095 crore proposal for upgrading four major roads in and around Bengaluru city.
Briefing presspersons on the Cabinet decisions, Minister for Law and Parliamentary Affairs T.B. Jayachandra said the government-owned Karnataka Road Development Corporation Limited (KRDCL) would upgrade four roads with a total length of 150 km.
The four roads are: Hoskote-Budigere-Mylenahalli-Devanahalli International Airport Road (22 km, ₹420 cr), Nelamangala-Madhure-Byatha Road (43.5 km, ₹505 crore), Anekal-Attibele-Sarjapur-Vartur-Whitefield-Hosakote Road (47.5 km, ₹625 crore), and Harohalli-Uruganadoddi-KIADB Industrial Area-Jigani-Anekal Road (42km, ₹545 crore).
These single lane roads would be upgraded to two-lanes. This would ease the traffic burden on the Ballari Road, besides addressing traffic congestion in and around Bengaluru city, Mr. Jayachandra said.
