Belagavi South MLA Abhay Patil met Met Hon PWD Minister Shri Govind Karjol and presented a plan to decongest the traffic on the Atal Bihari Vajpayee Marg (From Railway over Bridge- Shri Basaveshwar Circle (Goaves Circle) -third Railway gate – RPD cross- Bhagyanagar cross- Hari Mandir Cross).
The said road has enormous traffic and with no traffic signals, RPD cross is a chaotic most of the times.
The MLA has presented a plan to the minister to construct vehicle underpasses at the said locations and urged him to release Rs.60 Crores.
The minister has agreed to release funds for the vehicle underpass at RPD Cross and the MLA hopes vehicle underpass will for sure give rest to the inconvenience caused to the citizens of Belagavi and reduce accidents and ensure smooth flow of traffic.
The city already has one pedestrian underpass near the Court which is now a filthy place which no one uses.
We believe still this a plan and the exact location of entry and exit will be final once the Plan is made by the PWD.
