The National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) has established a committee of road safety experts to carry out the safety inspection of the Bangalore – Mysuru controlled access highway to ensure that the corridor continues to serve the people of Karnataka promoting safe travel. The Committee is currently visiting the site and will conclude its study by 20 July. He will present the report within 10 days of the conclusion of the visit.
Opened for traffic in March 2023, the 118 km long Bengaluru – Mysuru Access Control Highway corridor includes a part of NH-275. NHAI has employed state-of-the-art technologies in the construction of the highway which is helping to boost commerce and serving as a catalyst for the socio-economic development of the region. The highway has cut the journey time between the two cities in the state of Karnataka by almost half to just 75 minutes. The highway is a testament to the rapid transformation of India’s road infrastructure and NHAI’s commitment to create a world-class national highway network.
The corridor also includes 4 railway overpasses, 9 major bridges, 40 minor bridges, 89 underpasses and overpasses, and 6 no. to facilitate the circulation of the public. The controlled access highway also provides interstate connectivity to Karnataka with Tamil Nadu and Kerala, relieving congestion in the cities of Coorg, Srirangapatna, Wayanad and Ooty.
Improving safety on National Highways is one of NHAI’s top priorities and is committed to ensuring a safe, smooth and uninterrupted travel experience for all commuters on National Highways.
