Bantwal, May 26, 2015: As per reports, work on Road overbridge on National Highway at BC Road is complete and the bridge is likely to open for vehicular use in June. It is hoped that the opening of the RoB will help in reducing traffic snarls on the busy road.
The RoB work has been on for the last 18 months, traffic congestion at B C Road is a chronic matter most of the day. The RoB constructed on Mangaluru-Bengaluru National Highway. The delay in the works had a cascading result on traffic at B C Road Junction where vehicles from various destinations halt. Presently, all the vehicles have to move on a narrow road, thus affecting the traffic.
NHAI official K A Khan and Bantwal ASP Rahul Kumar visited B C Road to review the traffic and have promised to open the new RoB for vehicular movement after the gram panchayat polls.
The NHAI officials also promised to construct a circle for the benefit the vehicles travelling to Mangaluru-Bengaluru, Mangaluru-Puttur, Mangaluru-Dharmasthala, B C Road-Konaje, B C Road-Moodbidri, B C Road- Sarapady, B C Road-Panolibail.
