A 117-km-long national highway stretch between Bengaluru and Mysuru is all set to cut travel time between the two cities to just 75 minutes from the existing three hours. The Bengaluru-Nidaghatta-Mysuru section of NH-275 is scheduled to be opened in October, confirmed Union Minister Nitin Gadkari recently, and is expected to add to the convenience of traveling between the two major cities by road.

Being developed at a cost of 8,350 crore, this particular stretch of the national highway is expected to not just bolster tourism but also serve as a catalyst for further economic development of the region. Gadkari recently took to Twitter to highlight that work on the stretch is now on in full swing for an October completion timeline.
