Mayor B S Sathyanarayana inspected the road on Saturday. Palike officials informed him that 405 properties have been identified for acquisition and widening will begin soon after obtaining consent from the property owners.

The BBMP has proposed widening a 7.5-km stretch of the road to 150 feet. Palike Commissioner M Lakshminarayana said a detailed project report for the work has been prepared.

The mayor directed the officers to remove the illegal advertisement hoardings on the road. He said a service road connecting Bannerghatta Road and Kodichikkanahalli will be laid soon.
