The Four-Lane Road on Marakada to Airport Entry Stretch Likely to be Completed by May

The widening of about 2 km stretch of Airport Road from Marakada (Welcome Arch) to Airport Entry that started about two years ago is going on at a swift pace and the four-lane road may be opened for traffic before the Monsoon sets in.

The project is being executed by the Public Works Department which also involves the construction of a new parallel bridge across Phalguni (Gurupura) River. With the work on the new bridge having been completed, traffic was diverted on the new bridge to facilitate widening of the Airport Road.

The Airport Road was a four-lane concrete road from KPT Junction (NH 66) till Marakada, closer to Mangalore City Corporation Border, the remaining part was a two-lane bitumen road. MCC has to take up widening of about 300 metre stretch from Marakada till its Welcome Arch, closer to the bridge. The concrete road work gets completed by May-end. However, road furniture, including completing the median, footpaths etc., require more time. They would be completed after the Monsoon. PWD would also execute junction improvement work at the junction of Airport Road with the Airport Exit Road as the stretch has a steep curve. From the Exit Road Junction till  Airport Entry Junction, the road curves were being flattened to the maximum possible extent so as to offer hassle-free driving for vehicle drivers.
