A Semi Ring Road connecting 3 national highways (NH-63, NH-218 and NH-48) has already been inaugurated. But the citizens were demanding Full Ring Road considering the traffic in Twin cities.
Union minister for Road transport and Highways Nitin Gadkari has given oral approval for the construction of missing part of Full Ring Road connecting Narendra near Dharwad till Kusugal on Hubballi Semi Ring Road.
The much awaited project will definitely improve the connectivity in the twin cities. Pralhad Joshi has thanked Nitin Gadkari for sanctioning ground-breaking project to the twin cities.
The new project will also provide a quick and convenient connection to Goa from Karnataka. Also Nargund-Navalgund bypass will be built with slight change in alignment.
Apart from it, the minister has also agreed to sanction service road to the newly constructed Semi Ring Road of Hubballi. HD West MLA and others were present during the meeting.
Ring roads allow channeling of Transit traffic, Cargo traffic, and other traffic so that they do not enter the City Centre thereby reducing the congestion in city limits.
