The much awaited road widening work from 3rd gate to Peeranwadi has commenced with demolition of the encroachments which come in the way of the 120 feet road.
There was restraint from many on the width of the road and yesterday many shops owners had asked it to be made as 80 feet road. More than 15 JCB’s and 4 cranes are working there
But this morning with police protection the JCB’s just removed anything and everything that was in the 120 feet radar.
There were some verbal clashes with the RaviKumar, commissioner of city corporation as well.
The Belgaum Chamber of commerce and other industry associations were demanding that the road be widened and the work on the same was stalled due to lack of funds.
