Potholes on Belgaum bypass road

 

Bella Vista Belagavi

Belgaum is part of the golden quadrilateral project and the new 4 laned highways have been a great success. The Belgaum to Kolhapur highway was completed before time by Punj Lyod Ltd. is in very good condition and well maintained, where as the Belgaum to Dharwad stretch which   was built Sunway Construction Ltd. – Berhad & R N Shetty & Co. Malaysian – Indian JV was in trouble since the beginning. The project was abandoned for a while and then again the NHAI completed the said project.nh4

Now there are potholes that have occurred on the stretch near ShivabasavaNagar and Shree Nagar on the Halaga to Honga stretch. There are a few more pot holes near Kakti as well.

 

Regular commuters on the road say that these pot holes can cause accidents as normally all vehicles are on high speeds and suddenly you have to slow down and this causes a lot of hardships.nh4-2

  1. What does the NHAI ( National Highways Authority of India) do?

    Only allotting tenders to contractors for construction & maintenence does not suffice.They must minutely supervise the work carried on by the contractors & review the maintenence from time to time.

    The NHAI which gets pay is for carrying on its activities and discharging its duties on the Site/Highway and not merely sitting in the Offices kilometers away & planning..

    The users of this Golden Quadrilateral have every right to enjoy a pot hole less road travel.They pay for road usage every 30-40kms…

    • I think Mr Mahendrakar is one of the Key Person working with R N Shetty and Sunway so that he knows about the JV is in trouble.Secondly the construction of Road work is done as per the specification and handed over to NHAI during 2007.Now the NHAI responsibilty to mentain the road for that one shoiuld not blame the contractor without knowing anything PUNJ Llopyd done good job since he has to mentain the Road for 15 years
