Bilikere-Belur highway likely to be four-lane soon: Gowda

Former prime minister H D Deve Gowda said, Union Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari has agreed to the proposal to convert the existing Bilikere-Belur highway into a four-lane road.

After inaugurating a cooperative society building at Nagenahalli in the taluk on Monday, Gowda said, due to the pressure exerted by him, Gadkari has agreed to upgrade the road from Bilikere in Mysuru district up to Belur in Hassan district into a four-lane road.

Gowda said, "It was my dream to see a rail route between Sringeri-Chikkamagaluru-Belur-Bengaluru, which could not be realised till now. I have exerted pressure on Prime Minister Narendra Modi in this regard and hope the rail route would be sanctioned in the next budget," he said.

MLA Y N Rudreshgowda and Hassan District Co-op Central Bank Ltd (HDCC) vice president M A Nagaraj were present.
