(NUTPL) to complete all the construction work on National Highway 66 (NH 66) on the Hejmady-Kundapur stretch within a set time schedule. The order is under the power conferred under Section 138 (2) of Criminal Procedure Code.
Because of the delay in completion of the widening work by NUTPL problems such as traffic congestion, a threat to public safety, discomfort and inconvenience to the public, health hazards and loss of time and money for the people. It is expected that the project will be completed and open to traffic on or before November 1, 2018. The Project Director, National Highways Authority of India (NHAI), Mangaluru will ensure that the NUPTL completed the work as per the deadline given to it.
