Mangaluru: 'Highway flyover approved near KPT Junction' - Nalin


Daijiworld Media Network - Mangaluru (SP)

Mangaluru, Sep 16: MP Nalin Kumar Kateel, disclosed that the National Highways Authority of India has given its nod for the construction of a new flyover at the KPT Junction in the city. There were persistent demands for the construction of a flyover here as traffic blocks often occurred as the airport road passes through this junction.

Nalin said that the flyover will be constructed at an estimated cost of Rs 34.6 crore and tender for the flyover will be floated soon. He expressed happiness at the fact that a long-pending demand for a flyover at the junction has been met with the current approval given for the project by union minister for highways, Nitin Gadkari.

Because of high density of vehicular traffic and vehicles moving in different directions at the junction, the road users often faced problems here. There had been demand from the people for an alternative arrangement to streamline the traffic movement as highway users too faced trouble here. With the flyover proposed now, it is hoped that the traffic chaos will be eased at this point.

    Kpt junction could have been dealt with by a sensor based signaling system. Nanthoor was the need of the hour. We lack highway management. All we are good at is building culverts. Now that paddy fields are gone BRIDGE is the word.

    The biggest problem of Mangalore city and surrounding areas is land geography.....it is very hilly and terrainous, not flat...A city is usually built in a flat land which helps to design and develop diagonally planned roads with footpaths. This flyover is small sanction when a 10 lane road is going to get completed in bengaluru-mysore road.

    As we seen many politicians dont understand peoples need. Now why flyover in KPT? they can construct flyovers in Nantoor to reduce traffic. Mr Naleen kumar katil has already told about flyover plan 2years back with the media. So now my question is where are the adviser or associate to advice Mr Kateel regarding the problems faced by common people. Instead fixing nantoor traffic issue they are planning in KPT ? WELL DONE
