There is some good news for the people of Hubballi Dharwad! Hubballi Dharwad will soon have a full ring road (or bypass) thereby reducing the traffic congestion in the twin cities.
Ministry of Road Transport and Highways (MoRTH) has invited Request for Proposal (RFP) from consultants to prepare the feasibility report/DPR for the construction of Kusugal to Narendra bypass.
As per the plan, A new Bypass will be constructed for Hubballi Dharwad cities by connecting NH-218 (Near Kusugal) and NH-48 (near Narendra on the outskirts of Dharwad city).
Once the above bypass is constructed, the alignment of the same is such that it completes the full ring road for Hubballi Dharwad. That will reduce a lot of traffic congestion in city limits.
The above bypass with the 6-laned Hubballi Dharwad bypass and Hubballi Semi Ring Road (or Half Ring Road) will act as Full Ring Road for Hubballi Dharwad.
Union Minister and Dharwad MP Pralhad Joshi said that the Ramanagar-Alnavar-Dharwad road will be connected to Kusugal on Hubballi Semi Ring Road under the Bharatmala-2 Project.
A Semi Ring Road is already operational in Hubballi city. Hubballi Semi Ring Road (or Half Ring Road) connects three highways viz NH-218, NH-63, and NH-48 outside Hubballi city limits.

The selected consultant will propose the most optimal alignment of the new Bypass and take care of the geometrics of the road to meet safety parameters while finalizing the DPR.
The structures on roads viz Bridges, ROBs, RUBs, and Flyovers will be designed to last more than 50 years. The width of the road will be decided to keep in mind the future requirements.
