The Hidkal Cross near Hattargi Toll plaza will have a trumpet interchange towards the Hidkal dam.
The trumpet interchange allows for the interchange of secondary two-way streets to a multi-lane roadway with minimal traffic mix. It takes the place of a T-intersection which is often used when a roadway ends at the intersection of another roadway.
