City-Mysuru highway gets
l A day after Prime Minister Mr Narendra Modi announced the project for six-laning of the Mysuru-Bengaluru National Highway-275, at the BJP rally in Mysuru on Monday, the Cabinet Committee on Economic affairs gave its clearance to the project on Tuesday. Mysuru Kodagu MP Mr Pratap Simha stated this in a press release. The total cost of the project is over Rs 7000 Crores, according to National Highway Authority sources. They added, "The Union ministry of road transport and highways has already approved the project. And even the tender has been opened. But since the cost of the project crossed Rs 2000 Crores, it needed clearance of the CCEA. With this clearance, work on the project is likely to begin soon," NHAI sources informed.
