Status of Mysuru-Bengaluru Highway – Srirangapatna bypass to open on Nov. 30: MP

Mysore/Mysuru: After the second carriageway of 23-km Ramanagara-Channapatna bypass on the Mysuru-Bengaluru Access-Controlled Expressway was thrown open to traffic on Sept. 1, the Srirangapatna bypass will be opened for traffic on Nov. 30.

The second phase of the works is under progress and the Srirangapatna bypass will be opened for traffic on Nov. 30, said Mysuru-Kodagu MP Pratap Simha.

Inspecting the road works, bypass and the toll plaza being set up at Srirangapatna on                    Thursday, Simha asked the engineers and the officials from the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) to ensure passenger safety in all the works being undertaken.

While one toll booth has been set up near Srirangapatna, the second toll plaza has come up at Kanaminike near Kumbalgodu. At Kanaminike, there are two plazas for onward and return journeys and toll will be levied. In all, there are three toll plazas but the toll will be collected only at two places.

The MP also visited the works that are being undertaken at Yeliyur as part of the Highway stretch. In a series of tweets, the MP has informed that the first stage of 51 kms between Nidaghatta and Bengaluru has progressed rapidly and there are certain linkages that have to be sorted out.

There are some issues in providing linkages from the bypass roads to the 10-lane expressways and these are causing delays. Barring a few design tweaks and addition of entry and exit roads from major towns along the way, there is no problem for traffic movement,  the MP clarified.

  • Well, MP Pratap Simha, the toll booths will collect the tolls, most of them will go to the pockets of the officials and the 40% commission famous politicians.
    Within just 2 yearts this highway will be congested with vehicles, the speed of them drops to 20MPH, and the highway will look as wonderful as the current state of the Mysore-Nanjangud highway!

  • Very Good Express way of International standard.My salute to our MP Mr. Pratap Simha who took initiative to complete the Mega project in record period.

  • Good work by Pratap Simha and NHAI. Jealous people will speak negative. I know how difficult it is to perform in this country. Continue your good work. Hats off to you sir.

  • Constructing a 10 way highway is not as easy as eating Masala Dosa. What did NIDDE RAMAIAH do this when he was the CM. People who do caste politics cannot perform.

  • Hey admirers of Simha
    You prattle as though this MP designed and constructed this 10-lane highway, just like Sir MV he did his developments.
    ome cak this time next year and post what you see.
    As for my name 'masala dosa',I use it to mock the dimwit who misunderstood it, as I expect of lazy Mysoreans who are only good at eating, hence the immigrants arrive to work hard/
    Third world folks!

  • These posters have not seen what a good highway looks and feels like it. For that they should visit the West.
    I will not even give 1 year. Within 6 months this highway will be crowded with vehicles, and this make them to crawl at a slow speed.
    The sheer volume of vehicles cause stress and pot holes start appearing thick and fast. Where will be this MP Simha then? He will accuse motorists then! Typical Indian quality and Indian mindset.

  • The expressway is a smooth run where it is ready and shows the promise of faster connectivity bringing development closer to the Bengaluru -mysuru corridor and hopefully decongest Bengaluru.
    However there is a need to focus on making the service lanes bi-directional and making exits and entry safe between the service road and expressway.

  • Recently i happen to visit sreerangapattana, i noticed that the so-called mysoe Bangalore expressway is only for 100-150km only, with several breaks and diversions. It may be suitably constructed and completed ony after 2-3years. By then the trafic will be increased and vehicles will be forced move bumper to bumper. How did they declared it completed when Gadkari sab had come?
