  • CM to lay foundation for Mani-Sampaje road on May 23

Mangalore, 11 May 2010: Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa will lay foundation stone for the road work from Mani-Sampaje on May 23.

The 72 km road is being laid at an estimated cost of Rs 176 crore, said District-in-Charge Minister Krishna Palemar.

Addressing mediapersons here on Monday, he said Yeddyurappa has given his consent to the National Highway Authority proposal to widen the Nantoor-Talapady highway by 45 metres instead of the earlier 60 metres. This will benefit more than 3,000 shop owners, who were fearing the land acquisition by the government. “Following opposition from the people, we met CM and explained the situation. The widening of the road from Nantoor to Talapady does not require 60 metre acquisition. In Goa and Kerala, NH had been widened by 45 metres.”

Palemar said the revised Comprehensive Development Plan will be issued in the gazette notification soon. Amendment have been made to the CDP and has been approved by the state government. According to the revised plan, there is concession in the fee for those who is willing to construct buildings in 3 to 12 cents land and for the regularisation of illegal sites. Instead of nine metres, roads will be laid in six metres in the newly laid layouts.

Maintain peace

In the wake of Gram Panchayat polls in the district, Palemar called upon the people to maintain peace and order in the district.
