BENGALURU: Union Road Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari on Sunday announced that a section of the National Highway-75, between Nelamangala and Devihalli, has been completed.
In a series of tweets, the minister said, “A section between Nelamangala-Devihalli on NH-75 has been constructed successfully. The section enables faster connection to tourist places like Mysuru, Sakleshpura, Halebeedu, Dharmasthala, etc., and caters to about 30,000 vehicles on weekends”.
“It also acts as a conduit in connecting Bengaluru-Mangaluru, Bengaluru-Mysuru, Bengaluru-Hassan/ Sakleshpura/ Dharmasthala”, he added.
Further, the minister said, “We have applied some innovative ideas during the construction such as the use of Fibre Reinforced Micro Surfacing to enhance the flexural strength of the micro-surfacing mix and thereby significantly improve the crack resistance and long-term durability”.
“We’ve also used State-of-the-Art Pavement Investigations to determine Pavement Distresses accurately. The corridor has been strategically developed as many industries and peripheral ring roads are proposed connecting the highway”, he noted.
“Under the leadership of PM Shri @narendramodi Ji, we are ensuring exceptional road infrastructure for the Karnataka people”, he added.
