BENGALURU: With the 10-lane expressway between Bengaluru and Mysuru expected to be officially inaugurated soon by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Union Road Transport and Highways Minister Nitin Gadkari will conduct an inspection during his two-day visit to the state on January 4 and 5.
The expressway has been plagued with complaints of sub-standard work and had been inundated after lakes overflowed during the recent monsoon.
Gadkari will conduct an aerial survey between 9.45 am and 1 pm on Wednesday by helicopter. He will later hold a meeting with Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai. The Union minister will also review the progress of work on other national highways in the state along with the CM at 5.30 pm on Thursday.
