Mahadevapete road to be widened

Road widening is essential to ensure smooth traffic as the number of vehicles are increasing every day in Madikeri. The narrow stretches in Madikeri are hampering the movement of vehicles.

Mahadevapete one of the busy road is Madikeri is one such example.
The residents have been demanding to widen Mahadevapete ROAD for the last few years.

Responding to the needs of the people, the CMC had even conducted a survey for widening the road and had earmarked fund for it. Even the court too had directed the CMC to widen the road.

At present, the CMC has decided to widen 910 metre road stretch from Chowki to A V School. The present road is only five metre wide. It will be widened to 12 metre. Footpaths and and UGD will be laid on either side of the road. The estimated cost of the project is Rs 1.8 crore.

When the CMC officials marked the area for widening, the local merchants have opposed the move. The CMC has sought the cooperation of the locals in widening the road.

CMC President Julekabi said “if the CMC fails to utilise the fund, then the fund will return back. The widening of the road will facilitate the movement of vehicles and reduce traffic congestion.”

CMC standing committee President K S Ramesh said “the issue of widening road has been discussed for the last three years. Now, the government has released the fund and there is a urgent need to take up the work. Those who will lose land will be given compensation as per Land Acquisition Act. The merchants need not worry on it,” he said.
