MP R. Dhruvanarayan meets Union Minister seeking National Highway upgradation

December 21, 2017

New Delhi: Chamarajanagar MP R. Dhruvanarayan met Union Minister for Road Transport and Highways Nitin Gadkari recently and submitted a memorandum seeking upgradation of the National Highway (NH) passing through parts of Mysuru and Chamarajanagar districts.

The Union Government has revised the prerequisites for upgrading the existing two-lane NHs into four-lane. According to the revised parameters, the traffic density on the existing two-lane NH has been reduced from 20,000 Passenger Car Units (PCU) to 10,000 PCU.

The NH 766 stretch connecting Mysuru with T. Narasipur (31km) has a PCU of 19,644 while between Nanjangud and Gundlupet, the same Highway has 16,445 PCU and hence qualifies to be a four-lane road. Only 21 kilometres between Mysuru and Nanjangud is four-lane. With revised norms, the entire stretch is now eligible for an upgrade.

Similarly, NH 150A linking Nanjangud with Chamarajanagar has a PCU of 16,445 and the 38.60 km stretch is an important link connecting Mysuru with the rural hinterland of Chamarajanagar.
