New 6-Lane highway to reduce travel time between Mumbai-Bengaluru

In a major relief for commuters between Bengaluru and Mumbai, a 72-Km stretch of the new six-lane highway in Karnataka, connecting Chitradurga to Davangere, is set to reduce travel time and enhance connectivity.

Nitin Gadkari, Union Minister of Road Transport & Highways, shared images of the stretch on Monday, hailing it as a “lifeline” linking the financial capital to the tech hub.Gadkari emphasized the efficiency of the route, touting it as a time-saving, fuel-efficient, and eco-friendly mode of travel.

Gadkari underscored that this project supplements the previous announcement of constructing a highway between Nelamangala and Devihalli in Karnataka, part of National Highway-75.Apart from reducing travel time between Mumbai and Bengaluru, this new highway is expected to stimulate the real estate market in Chitradurga, Davangere, and other areas in North West Karnataka due to improved connectivity.
