Bengaluru: The expressway linking Bengaluru with Mysuru Expressway is expected to be fully functional by September 2022.

“As much as 81% of the work under Package 1 (Bengaluru to Nidaghatta) and 72% under Package 2 (Nidaghatta to Mysuru) has been completed,” said Mysuru MP Pratap Simha.

The National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) project is estimated to cost Rs 8,066 crore.

The expressway will comprise six lanes (three on each side) for carriageway and four lanes for service roads (double-laned) along the entire path.

The stretch will include nine major bridges, 44 minor bridges, 28 vehicular underpasses, 13 light vehicle underpasses, 13 pedestrian underpasses, eight vehicular overpasses, four rail overbridges, and two rest areas.

Also, the six bypasses (at Bidadi, Srirangapatna, Ramanagaram, Channapatna, Maddur, Mandya) will be completed by January 2022. Of these, the bypass connecting Ramanagara-Channapatna will be the longest, covering 22.35 kilometers of distance.

Currently, it takes three hours to cover the distance, the expressway is expected to reduce the time of travel between the two cities to around 90 minutes.
