One of the most delayed projects of Hubballi Dharwad, the Construction of Navalur Flyover is almost complete and will be thrown open to the use of the public soon.
HDBRTS is constructing the mixed lane flyover towards Hubballi and Dharwad, plus BRTS only Flyover near Navalur. Also, a BRTS stop for Navalur is coming up on BRTS-only Flyover.
Even though HDBRTS was officially inaugurated on 2nd February 2020, Navalur ROB, or the Flyover part of the HDBRTS project was yet to be completed owing to various reasons.
The trial run of HDBRTS was started on 2nd October 2018. It can be recalled HDBRTS flyover at Navalur developed cracks within a year, officials had closed the Flyover to repair it.
Another incident was reported in September 2020 when Concrete blocks on the fly over got detached due to the incessant rains that lashed the twin cities of Hubballi Dharwad.
Hubballi Dharwad Bus Rapid Transit System (HDBRTS) is constructing a new BRTS stop at Navalur, much to the rejoice of the people of Navalur and surrounding areas.
As there is no HDBRTS bus stop close to Navalur, the locals were forced to use either NWKRTC or Bendre buses. Citizens of Navalur were compelled to go to SDM or KMF BRTS stop to board BRTS buses.
Residents of Navalur and surrounding areas are requesting the authorities to complete the Fly over work and the construction of the BRTS bus stop as soon as possible.
Hubballi Dharwad BRTS (HDBRTS) is a Bus Rapid Transit System built to serve the twin cities of Hubballi Dharwad at a cost of ₹980 Crores with the help of the World Bank.
