With the expansion of City along the outskirts, one of the eye-catching zones spurting to the north-west of Bangalore is Tumkur Main Road. The imperative geographical positioning with residential catchments and the industrial region in the west, and the airport to the north, this belt has witnessed drastic augmentation of real estate market and many leading construction brands have enrooted their landmark ventures in this region. The upgraded elevated Tumkur Highway connecting to Nelamangala, proposed Bangalore-Mumbai Industrial Corridor, connectivity to International airport and the presence of ORR have all contributed to the growth of Tumkur Main Road.
Tumkur Road, once primarily recognised as exit route for truckers and other travellers has come past a long way and has distinctly emerged into an earnest real-estate hub with many imperative residential and industrial catchments emerging cardinally in this belt. The upcoming food technology parks around the satellite town of Tumkur and the employment opportunities they generate are expected to shape Tumkur Road into colossal residential consortium. The Peripheral Ring Road (PRR) project of 116 km bypassing the present ORR is circumvented to serve as a chief road network that will connect Tumkur Road in the northwest to Hosur Road in south wrapping 65 km.
