Unmotorable National Highway

November 21, 2020


The National Highway connecting Mysuru to Coimbatore and to Kerala is one of the major Highways with a very large density of vehicles at any point of time. About 45 kms of this Highway between Chamarajanagar and Tamil Nadu border is a misnomer for the road. This stretch of about 45 kms will test the driving skills of the drivers and the running condition of the vehicles.

We need to manoeuvre large craters formed by the potholes linked over a period of time and drive with full concentration to ensure that the vehicles successfully move through this stretch.

I fail to comprehend why the elected representatives from Chamarajanagar and our Governments (both State and Central) have turned a blind eye to the hardships experienced by the road users in this unmotorable stretch.

Once we cross over to Tamil Nadu, we find that the same Highway is very well maintained. Is it that the every State Government or the Central Government, have different policies in maintaining the same stretch of National Highway ? Or is it due to the callous and indifferent attitude of our State Government that the motorists are being penalised in Karnataka ?
