Shimoga: The district administration has submitted a proposal to the State government seeking Rs. 23 crore to widen Azad and Agumbe roads in Tirthahalli.
A sum of Rs. 10 crore has been released to take up the project. Deputy Commissioner V. Ponnuraj, who held a meeting on Monday with the people to be affected by the road-widening work in Tirthahalli, said that land would not be acquired forcibly. Property owners would be given proper compensation.
The district administration had plans to construct a bypass road from the banks of the Tunga in Tirthahalli to Agumbe road. Even if this road was constructed, it would be inevitable to enforce traffic regulations in Tirthahalli town limits, he said.
Mr. Ponnuraj also held meeting last week on road-widening work in Sorab. It has been planned to widen the main road in the town from Town Panchayat Circle to Dandavathi bridge.
