Road underbridge near Kadugodi to be ready soon

The road underbridge is being built on the stretch that connects Kadugodi and Channasandra junction, which is the main link to Hope Farm, Hoskote, Devangonthi and Chikka Tirupati.

While a road underbridge (RUB) work near Kadugodi would be complete in a month enabling smooth traffic flow, service roads to be built soon will further add to the comfort.

The RUB lies on the stretch that connects Kadugodi and Channasandra junction, which is the main link to Hope Farm, Hoskote, Devangonthi and Chikka Tirupati. The initial works took off three years ago and the construction started just last year.

The RUB comes as a relief to commuters as they will not get stranded in the traffic jams at Bengaluru-Jolarpet railway track that intersects the stretch.

However, the locals and other commuters wanted the service roads badly as they are forced to take a complete detour through the RUB. Once the service roads are built, they can take routes to their respective layouts without passing through the RUB.

The civic body has started the land acquisition process for the service roads and has notified over 49 property owners in the area for the same. Only two buildings that belong to railways on either side of the RUB will be demolished while the rest of the properties are vacant lands, according to the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) officials.

Unlike other Palike projects that get stuck in the land acquisition issues, the process for the project is going smoothly as 50% of the landowners have already agreed to receive transferable developmental rights (TDRs).

“If the rest of the landowners do not accept the TDRs, then we will look for an alternative compensation method. As of now, we have only recommended (TDRs),” said Ramakrishna Reddy, assistant executive engineer, BBMP.

The project costing about Rs 16 crore is shared by the civic body and South Western Railways equally.
