CII Urges Karnataka Govt To Study Feasibility Of 6 Lane Highway
The Mangaluru Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) has urged the Karnataka government to examine the reasonability of executing six lane highway between Bengaluru and Mangaluru.
The detailed report of six lane road project prepared by Japan International Cooperation Agency is as of now with the State government.
The New Mangalore Port is underutilized by the exporters in Karnataka mostly because of the issues in road and rail availability from assembling center points to the port.
The large portion of the cargoes are moving from Bengaluru Inland Container Depot to Chennai or through Nava Sheva, Mumbai, bringing about extra expenses to the exporters and making them uncompetitive. The development of payload is hampered because of trouble in arranging the inclination by the trains and furthermore poor street availability in the Shiradi ghat near Hassan locale on Bengaluru-Mangaluru thruway.
The execution of the six-lane road connectivity project will help completely use the capability of NMPT.
