Udupi 06 April 2010: The second phase of the four-laning work of the Udupi-Manipal Road is likely to be completed before the monsoon.

Commissioner of Udupi City Municipal Council (CMC) Gokuldas Nayak told The Hindu on Sunday that under the second phase, the four-laning work was already in progress from Kadiyali in Udupi to Syndicate Circle in Manipal. As per the tender agreement, the road had to be constructed in 18 months at a cost of Rs. 12 crore.

“Alhough putting of the dividers and other small works may take some more time, the road is likely to be ready before the monsoon sets in,” he said.

The first phase of the four-lane Udupi-Manipal Road from Karavali Junction to Kadiyali had been completed and thrown open for traffic. Unlike the Karavali Junction to Kadiyali stretch, which is fully concreted, the Kadiyali-Syndicate Circle stretch would be asphalted, he said.

The CMC would be widening (two-lane) the stretch between Jodukatte and Ambalpady Road in this fiscal year. The four-laning of the Tangadagady-Kalsank Road would also be taken up in this fiscal, he said.

The CMC had already floated tenders for removing the silt from the roadside drains. The work was expected to begin within a week, he said.

Mr. Nayak said that only Dugli Padu and Manjushri Nagar areas in the city were facing drinking water shortage. This was because the drinking water from the Swarna River second stage was yet to be connected there.

People in this area were presently being supplied water from a borewell. Another borewell would be sunk soon in this area. Plans were afoot to construct an overhead tank in Manipal to supply water to these two areas, he said.

There was no shortage of drinking water in any other area of the city. No drinking water shortage was expected in the city during this summer as there was sufficient water in the Baje Dam, he added.
