The BUDA has alloted the Consultancy services for preparation of the Feasibility report for the construction of proposed Ring road for Belagavi City to an agency from Bengaluru namely Transhi consultancy and they will have to submit a detailed report within 2 months.
Speaker Kagodu Thimappa had said that a special fund will be sanctioned for the ring road project earlier this year.
Details of the Proposed ring road –
Macche Village NH 4A to Raichur Bachi Road (SH 20) road length 9 kms of 6 lanes (max width of road 50 mtrs)
Raichur Bachi Road to Kakti Village NH 4 – road length 10 kms of 4 lanes
Gokak Road (SH54) to Bagalkot (SH20) to Alarwad Cross (NH4) – road length 8 kms of 6 lanes
The tender would be opened on 15-04-2016 and then the agency selected would prepare a feasibility report of the above Ring road along with the estimated cost which will also include cost of land acquisition.
An outer ring road in the outer periphery of Belgaum city connecting Hindalaga–Peeranawadi -Halga-Kakati Hindalaga had been under BUDA’s consideration since 2005-06. It is also understood that a technical feasibility study for the project was undertaken in 2006 and the 8.5 km section from Hindalga to Piranawadi (Connection between Vengurla Road and NH-4A,) was considered for being taken up in the Phase I. The tender for awarding the project on BOT basis for 30 years concession was called and the letter of intent was also issued to Chetak Enterprise of Jaipur. However, GoK had not given the in principle approval for project to be developed on BOT-Toll and therefore the project could not be executed.
