Union minister and Dharwad MP Pralhad Joshi had requested Minister of Road Transport and Highways Nitin Gadkari to extend the flyover till Bidnal cross.
Nitin Gadkari has acknowledged the need and has agreed to extend the flyover. Apart from it, he has also agreed to construct an Overbridge at Chabbi and an underpass at Mammigatti.
As Bidnal cross is almost at the outskirts of the city, most of the outgoing traffic towards Bengaluru will use the flyover thereby reducing the congestion on the interior roads.
Nitin Gadkari, Union Minister of Road Transport and Highways had laid the Foundation stone for the Chennamma Circle flyover virtually around a year back (15th January 2021).
The construction of piers for the flyover is in progress near IT Park. However, the work seems to have completely stopped from Hosur towards the Gokul Road.
Central Government had approved the construction of Elevated Corridor/Flyover at Rani Chennamma Circle of Hubballi at a cost of ₹298 Crores.
As of now, the district administration has banned the entry of heavy vehicles in Hubballi city from 9 AM to 7 PM to facilitate the construction of the flyover.
