Mysuru-Bengaluru 10-lane Expressway: Toll collection to begin from October 2022

Elevated toll booths built after Srirangapatna and near Bidadi

Mysore/Mysuru: The introduction of tolls on new roads that facilitate travel is a nationwide arrangement. Likewise, works are in full swing to set up two toll plazas on the Mysuru-Bengaluru 10-lane National Highway (NH-275) that is being developed as an economic corridor.

The 117-km road, being built at a cost of Rs. 8,350 crore, will be fully operational by October this year and the same has been confirmed by Union Minister for Road Transport and Highways Nitin Gadkari, who has predicted the travel time between the two cities at 75 minutes.

Two toll booths are being built along the Highway on elevated stretches. Works are in full swing and the plazas will be operational with all high-tech toll systems and FASTag facility by the time the road works are completed.

While one toll booth is coming up near Ganaguru after Srirangapatna near K. Shettihalli, the second toll plaza is coming up at Kannaminaki near Bidadi. At Kannaminaki, there are two plazas for onward and return journeys and toll will be levied. In all, there are three toll plazas but toll will be collected only at two places, a top officer from National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) clarified.

When asked about the toll rates, the officer said that as of now, the toll has not been decided. “The road works have to be completed and only later the total project cost, number of passing vehicles, toll rates for all category vehicles will be decided. It is premature to discuss the toll now,” he said. 

Meanwhile, the NHAI has enforced toll collection on Nanjangud Toll Plaza near Kadakola via National Highway-212 (now renamed as NH-766). The Mysuru-Nanjangud Road touches Ooty, Mysuru-T. Narasipur Road touches Kollegal and Tamil Nadu and Gundlupet-Moolehole Road touches Kerala. All these roads are part of NH-766 (earlier NH-212) that has now become          a toll road. The toll system has been enforced at the toll plazas at Kadakola (K.N. Hundi, Nanjangud), Yedadore on the T. Narasipur Road and Kannegala at Gundlupet.

    Though it hasn’t been many years since Mysore – Nanjungud highway was constructed, the road already has many potholes. I wonder for what purpose toll is being collected.

  2. Viv says:

    75 mint to reach mysore.We should appreciate PS on this.

  3. Why cant u mention comparitive tolls including msnjagud toll to make the article complete?

  4. Prakash V says:

    Whatever is the condition collecting money is very important for them. Atleast the prices should be nominal rather than keeping the prices at High !!

  5. Aman says:

    The roads are full of dust and potholes , would they fix it by October or leave it like that

  6. Nagaraju .hk says:

    This road will be half done by ocober. But we will to have shell out toll fee for this half done road. Mysore to Nanjangud road is full of pot holes and road passes through many busy villages. Even for this shabby road the government is collecting toll fee. Ridiculous.

  7. V subramanyam says:

    Toll collection has become fancy and “NOASKER NO TELLER”like, there is no limitations of time upto which period the toll has to be collected. If it is so, why the accounts are kept in dark. It can be brought to lime light of public.

  8. Natraj D says:

    The toll collection at KN Hundi is completely unjustified as the display board says Kerala Border toll. Kerala border is situated far away aftrr Gundlupet anf it would be advisable to shift this toll plaza after Gundlupet asany locals travel from Mysore to Nanjangud and Gundlupet and payment of toll is an additional burden with the sky rocketimg prices of Petrol, Dkesel and gas. Also the roads aftrr tje toll plaza are full of potholes and also pass through villsges like Kadakola and as per the hon’ble transport ministers announcement, all toll. Plazas within the 60kms radius woild be moved. I am sure this toll plaza would also be moved to relieve the localities travelling on this road for work and business. Hope this suggestion would be considered

  9. Prabhu says:

    This is sheer nonsense to levy toll on the Mysore Bangalore express way if it is not completed. Ñanjangud road has many path holes. While returning from Waynad yesterday, we had to pay tolls near Gundlupet and Kadatola. Keep the roads in motorable atleast to levy tolls

  10. Neil says:

    Lane discipline should be strictly enforced if one is to travel between the cities in 75 minutes. Slow vehicles hogging the fast lanes should be fined or they will never stop refusing to give way to fast traffic.

  11. Ali says:

    What is the use when u have to wade thru the horrific traffic within the city to reach home in Bangalore. 75 minutes from Mysore to Bangalore and another 75 or more minutes to reach your home within Bangalore city.

  12. Virendra Giri says:

    Why toll at Mysore -Nanjungud Road is collected is beyond understanding .It is not at all a good road and having nothing to say that first of all it is a NH let alone collecting toll. So many places in NH there are many toll plaza in the same road and everywhere toll is collected ..why ? NH should answer.

  13. Prakash says:

    Can we expect speed breaker/ road hump/ police standing with speed gun to fine people who travel more than 60/80 km per hour in new Bangalore Mysore road

  14. Ashwin says:

    T. Narasipura road not in any stretch of imagination is in toll standards. It is a basic wide road without any medians. Govt should stop toll for this road.
