35 Crore Rail Over Bridge for hassle free movement
Long queues and chaos, a common sight at the Sujathapura railway level crossing will soon be a thing of the past with the proposed Rail Over Bridge (ROB). Increased railway movement has led to severe interruption of vehicular traffic on NH 150A multiple times during the day, especially, affecting the movement of heavy cargo trailers catering to various Industries in the vicinity. Wait gets as long as 15 minutes that often leads to traffic jams. Finally, commuters long-pending demand for a solution has been met with Ministry of Road Transport and Highways (MoRTH) calling a civil tender for the construction of 4 lane ROB and its approaches in lieu of existing Level Crossing No 18 at Km 620 600 on NH 150A at Sujathapuram railway crossing in Nanjangud.
