Mangaluru, (The Hindu): The entire stretch of National Highway (NH) 75 connecting the coastal commercial hub of Mangaluru with Nelamangala and further with Bengaluru will become a four-lane road — except for a 26-km stretch of Shirad Ghat.
Instead of the initial plan to have a two-lane bitumen road between Gulagalale (between Ballupet and Sakleshpur) and Maranahalli (Heggadde), the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) has proposed to lay a four-lane concrete road on this stretch too. Thus, the 55-km stretch between Hassan and Maranahalli will become a four-lane concrete road.
Sources in the NHAI said that initially it was thought of having only a two-lane road because of the hilly terrain where the existing alignment passes through steep curves, ups, and downs. However, it was later decided to have the four-lane road considering the volume of traffic. Also, the proposed green bypass for Shiradi Ghat starts from Maranahalli and ends near Gundia, thus requiring four-lane connectivity at both the ends.
