MANGALURU: Dakshina Kannada MP Nalin Kumar Kateel said the Narendra Modi government has sanctioned various projects worth Rs 38,000 crore to the district in the past nine years.

Giving out details of the achievements of the BJP government, Kateel said that the central government has decided to implement a revised tunnel road project to connect Mangaluru and Bengaluru. The new project with only three tunnels on Shiradi Ghat will be taken up at an estimated cost of Rs 2,500 crore. “A DPR for the much-awaited Shiradi Ghat tunnel road proposal has already been prepared. While there will be three tunnels, remaining stretches will have bridges and roads. Earlier, the tunnel road project was planned at an estimated cost of Rs 12,000 crore. The new DPR is likely to be approved soon,” he said.

“The tender process for a flyover at Nanthoor in the city has been finalised, but a court stay must be vacated. Meanwhile, a Delhi-based company has been awarded the contract to construct a flyover at KPT Junction. A Vande Bharat Express will be introduced from Mangaluru to Bengaluru, via the Hassan-Mysuru route. Mangaluru Central, Mangaluru Junction, Bantwal and Subrahmanya railway stations will be developed under the Amrit Bharat Station scheme. The BSNL will set up 4G towers at 60 villages in DK,” the MP of Dakshina Kannada said.
