Road widening

There were no takers of the project to widen the narrow 126 KM distance Thiruninravur to Tirupathi into a 200 feet 6 lane highway. It was a 1000 crore rupees project tendered by NHAI in March 2009. It is believed that 25000 passenger car units a day are needed to make the six lane project profitable as opposed to the 16000 to 17000 PCUs which traverse the highway currently.[2]
