The Bengaluru-Mysuru Highway (NH-275) is being developed as a Six-Lane fully access controlled Highway, starting from Km.18.000 near Panchamukhi Temple, Kengeri, Bengaluru South District, Bengaluru. It connects Ramanagara & Mandya District in the state of Karnataka and ends at Km.135.304 near Manipal Hospital Junction, Mysuru, Mysuru District in the State of Karnataka.
Before this highway was built, there were other routes available to the public for traveling between these places.
The Access Controlled Highway is designed for high-speed travel, with speed limits varying from 80 km/hour to 100 km/hour for different types of vehicles as per the respective notifications on 25th January 2023 and 13th June 2023.
However, due to safety concerns for certain classes of slower vehicles like two-wheelers, three-wheelers, non-motorized vehicles, and agricultural tractors (with or without trailers), which are more vulnerable to accidents when sharing the road with high-speed vehicles, the following types of vehicles are prohibited from using the Bengaluru-Mysuru Access Controlled Highway (NH-275):
- Motorcycles (including scooters and other two-wheelers)
- Three-wheelers (including e-Carts and e-Rickshaws)
- Non-motorized vehicles
- Tractors Special with or without trailers
- Multi Axle Hydraulic Trailer Vehicles
This order is made under Section 35 of “The Control of National Highways (Land and Traffic) Act, 2002”.
