Chamarajanagara: The border district of Karnataka – Kerala and Tamilnadu, Chamarajanagara is witnessing large number of trucks in recent years. These trucks transport mainly agricultural produces from State to Kerala and Tamilnadu and vice versa. As these trucks are parked besides national highways, it has been causing traffic congestion.

Now, to facilitate truckers, the State Government has planned to establish a truck terminal in the District.

Speaking to mediapersons, State D. Devaraja Urs Truck Terminal (DDUTT) President D. S. Veeraiah said that the State Government has planned to establish truck terminals in the districts where the truck traffic is more.

He said the DDUTT has noticed the increase in truck traffic in the District, and hence we have instructed officers to find suitable place to establish terminal. He said officials have suggested Shivapura in Chamarajanagara, Badanaguppe – Kellamballi Industrial Area, and Sathyamangala Road for the project. m He said the  DDUTT has sufficient funds to establish truck terminal. If the State Government provides land we will begin construction within the next three months, he said.

He added parking of trucks beside highways is causing mishaps. Fuel pump, dormant bank, an toilet facility would be provided at the terminal. The Yeshwanthapura Truck Terminal in Bengaluru constructed recently has space to park 2000 trucks and other vehicles. The DDUTT planned the same kind of terminal in the District, he noted.

He said the truck terminals would reduce accidents and the DDUTT planned to establish 4 to 5 terminals in one district depending upon traffic of trucks. He said godowns would be constructed to facilitate truckers at the terminals. If State Government provides land free of cost the terminal would be finished within 6 to 9 months, he added.
