Mangaluru: National Highways Authority of India has given its approval for the construction of a new flyover at the KPT Junction in the city, said MP Nalin Kumar Kateel.
Nalin said, “the flyover will be constructed at the spot where Bejai Main Road and Airport Road meet National Highway 66, at an estimated cost of Rs 34.6 crore.”
He said that there were persistent demands for the construction of a flyover here as traffic blocks often occurred as the airport road passes through this junction. There had been demand from the people for an alternative arrangement to streamline the traffic movement as highway users too faced trouble here due to high density of vehicular traffic. With the flyover proposed now, it is hoped that the traffic chaos will be eased at this point.
