National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) to build 24 numbers Foot Over Bridges on Mysuru Bengaluru Highway (NH275)
The Mysuru-Bengaluru NH 275 national highway is categorised as an access-controlled route. Its alignment traverses through a peri-urban setting, thus highlighting the need for establishing secure crossings for the general public across the highway.
In response to this requirement, the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) has taken the initiative to develop Foot over Bridges (FOBs) at 24 specific locations along the Bengaluru-Nidagatta-Mysuru stretch of NH-275. This development spans from Chainage Kilometer 18.000 to Kilometer 135.304 within the state of Karnataka.
To achieve this objective, NHAI is employing an Engineering, Procurement, and Construction (EPC) Contract model. This strategic approach involves orchestrating the entire process of designing, procuring resources, and constructing the Foot over Bridges through a unified framework.
Estimated Project Cost (In Rs.): 46,10,05,504 Exclusive of GST
No of Years for Completion of Work: 1 Year
Maintenance period: 5 years

The project will include construction of Foot Over Bridge at the above 24 locations on the Bengaluru – Nidaghatta – Mysuru Section from Km.18.000 to Km.135.304 of NH-275.
The construction of these Foot over Bridges is an integral step in enhancing safety and accessibility for the public, particularly in areas where the highway traverses through urban regions. These bridges will provide safe passages for pedestrians to cross the highway without encountering vehicular traffic, contributing significantly to the overall safety and convenience of the traveling public in the region.
