Mysuru's first Automated Driving Test Track to open soon
The civil works of laying the city’s first automated vehicle driving test track is almost done with a small percentage of works to be done. A swanky office of Road Transport Office (RTO) East has been constructed near the track. Road Transport officials are waiting for funds from the government and they expect the track to be thrown open to the public soon.
Built at a cost of Rs. 9.30 crore at an eight-acre-10-guntas land near the Narayana Hrudayalaya on the Ring Road, the track has been built under the e-track project. Apart from long-winding and separate testing tracks for two, four and six-wheelers, the campus houses the new office that has been constructed for RTO (East). The project of automated vehicle driving test track was conceptualised in 2015 when the need of an exclusive testing track was felt, thanks to the growing number of vehicles. After the initial approvals, the land was handed over by Mysuru Urban Development Authority (MUDA) to the Transport Department which took up the track-laying works.
At present, in the absence of the test track, RTO authorities ask those who apply for Driving Licence (DL) to show their skills on the main roads. KSRTC trainee drivers are trained at the test track in KSRTC driving school and are tested by the RTO on the main roads. “Testing skills on the road is of little use as they are not detailed and we were forced to work under limitations. All these will be avoided once the automatic testing track becomes operational,” said M. Prabhuswamy, RTO East.
