Hurdles cleared for NICE Projects

The Bangalore-Mysore Infrastructure Corridor Project could finally be on the home stretch. The empowered committee on BMICP, headed by chief secretary Sudhakar Rao, on Tuesday is understood to have given the goahead to Nandi Infrastructure Corridor Enterprises (NICE) on pending works relating to the peripheral road and expressway. This effectively means all administrative decks are cleared for the company. Barring a few patches where land has not been made available by the government, NICE has completed major portions of link and peripheral roads. With this green signal, NICE is all set to take up works in the bottlenecks.
