Prime Minister Narendra Modi will launch multiple projects in poll-bound Karnataka tomorrow, including the Bengaluru-Mysuru expressway, Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) at Dharwad and world’s longest railway platform at the Hubbali station.
As part of the Bengaluru-Mysuru expressway project, the Bengaluru-Nidaghatta-Mysuru section of the NH-275 has been six-laned. The 118-km-long expressway has been developed at a cost of around Rs 8,480 crore. It will reduce the travel time between Bengaluru and Mysuru from around three hours to 75 minutes.
The Prime Minister will also dedicate to the nation the IIT, Dharwad. The foundation stone of the institution was laid by PM Modi in February 2019.
He will also inaugurate world’s longest railway platform at the Hubballi station. The record has been recognised by the Guinness Book of World Records recently. The 1,507-m platform has been built at a cost of about Rs 20 crore.
PM Modi will lay the foundation stone of the Mysuru-Kushalnagar four-lane highway.
