Frequent travellers between India's silicon valley Bengaluru and Andhra Pradesh's Vijayawada are in for good news. Work is all set to begin on the Vijayawada-Bengaluru expressway for which the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) has invited bids. The expressway, also called the BKV (Bangalore-Kadapa-Vijayawada) expressway, will reduce travel time between the two cities by 50 per cent from 12 hours on the existing route to just 6 hours.
