On 29/Nov ADB approved a $315 millon loan for Karnataka State Highway Improvement Project (KSHIP II). Amounts to 68% of estimated total ($463 million). 

Main goals: Improve over 600km of roads in the state. Due for completion by Dec 2014.

Projected Outcome:

(1) Elimination of selected immediate priority bottlenecks of the state highway network; 

(2) Road sector planning, programming, and policy formulation are transformed into an objective, data-driven and sustainable process; 

(3) Improved road safety; 

(4) PWD capabilities for operation, maintenance and protection of road assets are strengthened.

Since ADB is in the picture, we might be able to monitor its performance better. Don't need to haggle with GOK / PWD for info. Here are the links for those interested:
