While imposing a ban on vehicle movement on this stretch, the SC had asked KSHIP to develop an alternative road a" from Dammanakatte to Udbur Cross a" outside the park boundary to protect wildlife.
However, the KSHIP hasn't developed the alternative route and has instead approached the Karnataka government and the special panel seeking permission to reopen the road.
Based on these studies, KSHIP identified nine key road corridors, portions of which will be taken up for upgrading through ADB's financial assistance, using appropriate PPP frameworks.
In addition, Karnataka State Highways Improvement Project (KSHIP) was established as a project implementation unit (PIU) to undertake multilaterally financed projects.
