  1. What about the Haliyal interchange if left kindly consider Haliyal interchange it’s very much needed for long route transport moment

    1. Wait and’s initially a RFP..things will come out clearly after the bidders submit there bids with all details.

  2. I think this project is like a dream in sleep were we see an after wake up an seeing it will be same as it’s let’s c after 2.5years or after 25 years..HDbypass TaTa

  3. Finally after a very long wait and tired with present road scenarios considering the fact the HD bypass was the most dangerous to travel. Thank you for considering the safety of common people. We welcome the move whole heart.
    Nevertheless ‘Der aaye Durust aaye‘

  4. This is another mound of ghee on your nose and hands tied at the back… Neither you can resist the smell nor your young can reach the nose… I st vote them…

      1. Politicians should act proactively to make this project leaving behind there commission percentage so that generation after generation will be remembered their works bcz this road has taken many lives.

  5. Traffic @ ranichennama circle, glass house , hosur cross, is frustrating and severely chocked @ peak hours.
    Firstly and most important is the flyover work should be complete in time without extensions

  6. Ok atleast 1 lie can saves life of the people.. let it be.. atleast with this hope many rash/crash drivers especially Suv and car fellow will be alive for next 2.5 years

  7. Atleast this 4lane work was should be compleat in 2005, It is allredy too much late due to Hubli-Dharwad local leaders improper planning & visions.
    This action is taken after road accidental death of 13 peoples near by Sutgatti village this is verry bad & shame.

  8. “Project will be completed within 2.5 Years” —for completion of road that to this stretch being most dangerous !! What a joke! This stretch should be given highest priority to complete. Why we need to wait for 2.5 years to see so many deaths? There is no justification for this project’s schedule…

  9. Hi,

    I am not sure. But wanted to confirm whether it is just a fake news or not. Is there a staty from any court of law on widening of the proposed by-pass NH-48 road between Hubballi and Dharward end
