Visakhapatnam: The detailed project report (DPR) for the six-lane Visakhapatnam-Bhogapuram coastal road project is expected to be completed by March 2023. Union Minister for Road Transport and Highways Nitin Gadkari responded to this question questioned by Rajya Sabha MP GVL Narasimha Rao.
This coastal road connects the Visakhapatnam port terminal with the National Highway-16 Bhogapuram through Rushikonda and Bheemili. This highway is considered to be able to connect the radial of the main road with the nearest place on the national highway, tourist area, business area, social infrastructure, etc.
The DPR will identify suitable areas for the establishment of tourist areas, logistics centers, service industries, etc. The DPR for the proposed Bhogapuram Airport metro project has been prepared. All of these points to the need for improved mobility options. The Bheemili-Bhogapuram road is expected to become an alternative to the national highway in the near future, especially as more people travel to and from the Bhogapuram airport.
As planned, the road alignment of this coastal route will be integrated with all the roads along the coast.
