Bengaluru Prepares for the Worlds Longest Tunnel Highway Network | SR News Update

The Karnataka government is ready to make a remarkable contribution to the state's infrastructure. The proposed 99-kilometer-long tunnel highway in Bengaluru will be the longest ever built and one of the longest tunnel networks in the world. Three main corridors being constructed as part of this project include the North-South corridor connecting Bellay with Hosur Road via Yelahanka, Cantonment, Mekhri Circle, Hebbal, Kasturba Road, and Central Silk Board. Read SURFACES REPORTER (SR)’s complete report below:

The East-West Corridor will have two components, from Varthur Kodi to Jnanabharati and KR Puram to Goraguntepalya through Old Madras Road. Additionally, three connecting corridors are part of the tunnel project: From St. John Hospital Junction to Agara Road, linking the two segments of Corridor 1 and 2; and the Wheeler’s Road Junction to Kalyannagar on Outer Ring Road.

Phase I and Challenges of the Rs 22,000 Crore Project

Phase I of the project, which is planned to be 50 kilometres long, will link Hebbel and KR Puram with Cantonment and Silk Board at a cost of Rs 22000 crore. The route through St Johns Road, Halasuru, Mehkri Circle, Jayamahal Road and Old Madras Road has been plotted for the Hebbel-KR Puram stretch.

Cantonment-Silk Board track will pass via BaleKundri, Double Road, Lal Bagh and Hosur Road. Besides being bi-directional with an upper and lower deck per side, it will have a provision to accommodate two-wheelers passing on the upper deck in both directions. A feasibility study of this Bengaluru tunnel project is scheduled soon.

Tackle Traffic Congestion

The proposed tunnel project carries the potential to alleviate traffic congestion in the city. The estimated cost for tunnelled kilometre is Rs 450 Crores and thus, the project would be facilitated using a public-private partnership (PPP) – wherein the government would be partially helping the initiative by hybrid annuity models and regain their investment through collection of tolls.
