Moving beyond busy central thoroughfares, civic authorities are now looking to upgrade roads in residential areas under the Tender SURE (Specifications for Urban Road Execution) project.

After taking up work on Cunningham Road, Vittal Mallya Road and St. Marks Road, work on upgrading the 2.7-km stretch of Jayanagar 11th Main Road, at a cost of Rs. 10.77 crore, was launched on Tuesday.

Work on introducing uniform lanes, pedestrian-friendly footpaths and underground utility ducts on the stretch will be completed in nine months.

Laying the foundation for the roadwork, Union Minister for Chemicals and Fertilizers Ananth Kumar said it would be “a smart road for a smart city”.

Jayanagar MLA Vijayakumar said the stretch would serve as a model road and expressed confidence that work would be completed in nine months.

This is the first of the five roads that will be developed under the second package of the Tender SURE project. The other roads that will be upgraded are Modi Hospital Road, Siddaiah Puranik Road, KG Road and Nrupathunga Road.

The cost of the entire package is Rs. 84.46 crore and will cover a length of 8.30 km.

The Tender SURE project has been classified into three packages involving the development of 18 roads in total.

The work on three roads in the first package covering 10.2 km has commenced.
