Madikeri to get underpass

The work is likely to be completed within one and half month

The work on underpass has been taken up by the Karnataka State Road Development Corporation. The work is being implemented through private contractors. The work is likely to be completed within one and half months.

Hundreds of vehicles ply on Mysore road between district hospital and women and childrens’ ward. The patients and the public were finding it difficult in crossing the road between the hospital and the ward. With the completion of the underpass, the public can cross without any problem. The work has already commenced. With the work under progress, the traffic and the movement of vehicles were not affected. The vehicles have been allowed to ply on one side of the road to facilitate the work.

Hundreds of public and patients visit the hospital and the ward. The underpass is beneficial to us to reach the wards, said a patient.

“As rains have stopped, we can complete the work without any hindrance,” said KRDCL officials.

The underpass will be helpful to many, said Somaiah who had come from Somwarpet. Speaker K G Bopaiah had recently inspected the ongoing work.  He had even directed the officials to complete the work on Sudarshan Circle to General Thimmaiah Circle.
