Work on Widening of NH 169A Between Karavali Junction & Malpe Likely to be Completed Soon

Union Minister of State for Agriculture and Farmers’ Welfare Shobha Karandlaje on Monday directed the National Highways wing of the Public Works Department to complete the work of widening of NH 169A between Karavali junction and Malpe in Udupi as soon as possible.

The minister said that the fishing season being active and an increase in the number of tourists to Malpe beach, road users were put to hardship while travelling from Karavali junction on NH 66 and Malpe via Adi Udupi. Even local residents were being inconvenienced because of increased vehicular movement.

The Minister further directed departments concerned to display information regarding works being undertaken at the project sites for providing necessary information to the public. All ongoing works should get completed before the onset of the monsoon, she added.
