Mani-Sullia road to be motorable by June 20

Mani-Sullia road to be motorable by June 20

  Speaking at a review meeting to discuss the developmental work in the district, Nalin Kumar took the KRDCL officer to task for not completing the road work within the stipulated time. “The laying of the road was supposed to be completed before May 15. Let alone the completion of the work, the damaged road has not been repaired. The half completed work has made Mani-Sullia road unfit for travelling,” he said.

Responding to the same, KRDCL Engineer Manjunath promised to repair the damaged roads, construct the drains before June 20 and make the road fit for the vehicular movement for the time being.

When the MP expressed his concern over the completion of the recently planned Airport road, Manjunath informed that the construction work would start once the initial procedures are completed.  “We will receive the blueprint of the work soon, following which the work estimation will be prepared,” he said.

The meeting witnessed tiff between the people’s representatives and the officials from National Highway Authority of India.

The NHAI’s plan to construct bypass in Mulki and Padubidri town was opposed by the representatives.

Moodbidri MLA Abhayachandra Jain said, the construction of bypass road in Mulki would harm the ancient Bappanadu temple.  Rather, there is a demand from the people to construct flyover in both the towns for the easy traffic movement, he insisted.

NHAI Project Director Prashanth Gawasane argued against the construction of fly over as it would hamper the speed of the NH work.   When the people’s representatives opposed the land acquisition or the demolition of structures in the town for the purpose of road widening, Gawasane said, even if the NHAI decides to build the flyover, the same area of land would be acquired.
