As of now, Barrier construction and Earth filling is going on towards the Hubballi end of the flyover. Land levelling is going on towards the Dharwad end of flyover.
Even though HDBRTS was officially inaugurated on 2nd February 2020, Navalur ROB or flyover which is part of the HDBRTS project is 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.
Lack of HDBRTS bus stop near Navalur forced the villagers to either take NWKRTC or Bendre buses. To hop on to the BRTS bus, Navalur citizens were forced to board at SDM or KMF BRTS stations.
Another incident was reported in September 2020 when Concrete blocks on the flyover got detached due to the incessant rains that lashed the twin cities of Hubballi Dharwad.
Residents of Navalur and surrounding areas are requesting the authorities to complete the Flyover work and the Construction of a Bus station as soon as possible.
