The Centre has agreed to take up the Peripheral Ring Road (PRR) project around Bengaluru under the Bharat Mala Pariyojana, NHAI is preparing the detailed project report. The 65-km-long PRR stretch from Tumkur Road to Hosur Road — which will ease the load off the Outer Ring Road — will now be funded and built by NHAI. Around 1,810 acres have already been earmarked by the BDA for the project.
NHAI is looking into various models to take up the project. They can either take up the project on the usual PPP model or the hybrid annuity model (the Bengaluru-Mysuru six-lane project will be taken up under this mode).
