We were awestruck to read that Mandoli road is completed on the website of Belagavi Smart city.
https://bscl.in/completed/ – This page which mentions the list of the completed projects also mentions Mandoli road.
As of now the one stretch of Mandoli road From the Glasshouse entrance (now closed) to Lotus county is not finished and is again a death trap.
But seeing the website that it is complete we really don’t know if the smart city officials also know about what is complete and what is incomplete.
The works to be undertaken –
Storm water Drain
White topping road
Cycle track & Footpath
