Mysuru-Bengaluru Highway - The 10-Lane Expressway
The Mysore-Bangalore Highway, scheduled to be completed on Sept 7, 2022, will reduce the travel time between the 2 cities to 90 minutes from the present 3 hours. The economic corridor is back on the pace to meet its deadline post-COVID-19 lockdowns & labor shortages.
The thought of reaching Bangalore from Mysore or from Mysore to Bangalore is a worry in itself, let alone the commute. The traffic density is the major scarer. But seems like the frustration is now going to vanish for travelers. The 110 km long 10-lane Mysore-Bangalore expressway begins on the outskirts of Bengaluru (Vokkaliga Mahasamsthana) and ends at Columbia Asia Hospital in Mysore. The works at the 2 phases have begun one of which is Columbia Asia Hospital to Nidagatta and the work is almost halfway through.
