A week ago a class 8 student was killed when his bicycle was hit by a truck.
Now the citizens are demanding for the implementation of the heavy vehicles ban in the city but implementation of the same does not seem easy without a ring road.

  1. Very serious situation…. Though this beautiful city is bound to be one of the best ones too… The district administration and the civic bodies are acting like leg pulling crabs..

  2. Land acquisition is becoming difficult, ROI of the ring road is very low, Belagavi wont expand once ORR comes up unlike Bangalore, where ORR has now become a normal road with massive traffic jams. So while it is wishful thinking to have ORR in belagavi, may be there is no commercial motive for the same.
    Just as an analogy, the peripheral ring road of Bengaluru is stuck on paper for more time than the ORR of Belagavi.
    On a different note, deaths due to rash driving will happen on ORR also as and when it comes up
