The third user commented, “This is an incredible image! It’s amazing to see how India is transforming with the help of this new infrastructure. Bravo!”
On Friday, Karnataka’s health minister K Sudhakar also shared the video of the expressway on social media and called it “unprecedented speed” in the state. “10-lane Bengaluru-Mysuru Expressway and Vande Bharat Express in one frame! Double Engine BJP Govts at the Centre and in Karnataka have delivered next-generation infrastructure at a scale & speed that is unprecedented,” Sudhakar tweeted.
The expressway from Kengeri to Mysuru is aimed to reduce the present journey of 3.5 hours to just 1.5 hours. The Rs. 8,453 crore project is scheduled to be inaugurated in March. However, NHAI (National Highways Authority of India) allowed vehicles to ply from Bengaluru to Mandya as the remaining stretch is yet to be completed. The road has a length of 118 kilometres and is witnessing a heavy movement of vehicles even before its inauguration.
