Madikeri to get underpass

The work on underpass which will provide connectivity to district hospital and women and children’s ward of the hospital is in full swing.

The hospital is situated on one side of the road and the women and children’s wing of the hospital is situated on another side of the state highway near General Thimmaiah Circle.

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 public were demanding an underpass for the past several years. About 80 per cent of the work has been completed.

When the work on widening of Mysore-Madikeri-Sampje road was taken up, the KRDCL had submitted a proposal to construct an underpass two years ago.
The work on underpass has been taken up by the Karnataka State Road Development Corporation.

The KRDCL had completed the work on underpass. The remaining work is being taken up at a cost of Rs 92 lakh by the health department. The government has already released Rs 68 lakh to complete the work.

The pending work will be completed and the underpass will be inaugurated at the earliest, said health department engineering division chief engineer Prabhakar.
