Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah led a delegation to New Delhi to meet Union Minister of Road Transport and Highways, Nitin Gadkari, seeking approval for several significant infrastructure projects, including a tunnel through Shiradi Ghat. This vital project on the Marathalli to Addahole Section of NH-75 (Old NH-48) aims to enhance port connectivity between Mangaluru Port and Bengaluru, boosting the state's infrastructure and economic growth.

Other key projects discussed included an elevated corridor in Belagavi City on the old NH-4, a cable car at Gokak Falls in Belagavi District, and improving the road connecting Kittur town to Bailhongal town in Belagavi District. Additionally, he proposed widening the Belur – Chikmagalur section of NH-373 to a four-lane road.

Siddaramaiah called for a one-time improvement of NH-150A within Challakere town limits and the widening of the road from the Kerala/Karnataka border to Kollegal via Gundlupet, Nanjangud, and Mysuru on NH-766 to a four-lane or six-lane road. He also sought the upgrading of several state roads to National Highways, including the route from Kalpetta to Mysore via H.D. Kote and Jayapura, the road from Mysore to NH-948 near Malavalli via Bannur, and the stretch from Sankeshwar to Nargund via Gokak-Yaragatti-Manvalli.

Expressing gratitude for the approval of several prestigious greenfield corridors in Karnataka, Siddaramaiah emphasized that these projects would significantly enhance the state's infrastructure and economic landscape, boosting Karnataka's connectivity and overall economic development.
