The NH-748AA (Chorla) is in a terrible state and mostly unmotorable especially from Belagavi to Karnataka – Goa Border.
Now the NHAI has floated tenders for Emergent Repairs and Maintenance of Existing Road from Km 26.000 to Km 69.480 (Design) of NH-748AA in the Karnataka State from Belagavi to Karnataka/Goa Border.
