Union minister and Dharwad MP Shri Pralhad Joshi inaugurated the Railway Underbridge (RUB) built near Krishna Kalyana Mantapa, Deshpande Nagar, Hubballi. The underbridge will connect Deshpande Nagar with Bhavani Nagar.
Railway Under Bridge here was a long pending demand from the citizens as they were forced to take the alternate route at a distance of nearly 4kms. The new underbridge will definitely solve the commuter’s woes. The RUB is part of the Hosapete –Hubballi– TinaiGhat doubling project.
South Western Railways (SWR) has built the Railway Underbridge in just 40 days at a cost of ₹3.84 Crores. The underbridge has a 7.5m wide carriageway and a 160m approach road having the same width. U type RCC wall has been constructed to prevent soil from falling on the carriageway.
Minister of Large and Medium scale Industries Shri Jagadish Shettar, SWR GM Shri Ajay Kumar Singh, Hubballi Dharwad East MLA Shri Prasad Abbayya, Hubballi Division DRM Shri Arvind Malkhede, and others were present.
