Karnataka government is reportedly in the process of acquiring land for the proposed six-laning of the Bangalore-Mysore highway, which is currently a four-lane stretch.
The state Public works department would place the proposal for the project before the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI). The existing 4-lane stretch is not sufficient to carry about 70,000 vehicles that ferry through the route daily.
Meanwhile, the state government plans to extend the toll collection on state highways to at least seven more highways.
The government would also review the the collection in those highways where there are complaints from the road users that toll was on higher side.
The government will also review the allotment of 600 acre of excess land to Nandi Infrastructure Corridor Enterprise (NICE) around Bangalore. In an affidavit filed before the Supreme Court, the state government has admitted that it had allotted 600 acre excess land to NICE.
