NHAI finalising DPR for Chennai-Bangalore six lane

National Highways Authority of India is finalising a Detailed Project Report (DPR) for six laning of the 260 km Chennai-Bangalore highway, a senior official has said.

"The six laning of Chennai - Bangalore is being finalised. We can soon expect some developments in this stretch," I G Reddy, NHAI Chief General Manager (Technical), Tamil Nadu and Kerala told reporters here.

The Rs 5,000 crore project would be access controlled and have 12 junctions and grade separators, he said yesterday.

Commenting on the ongoing works in Kerala, he said the Government of Kerala was "not being proactive" in cooperating with the NHAI.

He said the work on two corridors - Coimbatore - Kochi and Mangalore - Kanyakumari - both passing through Kerala were proceeding in a "slow pace."
