DHARWAD: A new truck terminus will soon come up on a 7.26-acre land at Belur Industrial Area off Dharwad. The terminus, being developed at a cost of Rs 8 crore, will accommodate 184 trucks. Facilities like dormitory, drinking water, retail shops, toilets, dhaba and police station will also come up there.

District minister Jagadish Shettar visited the site on Monday along with DC Darpan Jain. He said the project launched in September 2010 would be completed before December this year. "A proposal has been submitted to the government, demanding funds to construct a hi-tech truck terminus at Anchatgeri near Hubli. Once the funds are sanctioned, the work on the terminus will be taken up on 50 acres," he added.

MP Pralhad Joshi and MLA Shankarpatil Munenkoppa were present.
