Nitin Gadkari inaugurates National Highway projects in India

Union Minister of Road Transport & Highways, Shri Nitin Gadkari, has approved funds totaling ₹ 7,479.21 crores for various key projects aimed at improving connectivity, reducing congestion, and ensuring road safety across multiple states. This is a significant move to bolster India’s road infrastructure.

The Aizawl and Kolasib districts of Mizoram will see the construction of a 4-lane highway on NH-6, connecting N. Kawnpui (N. Mualvum) to Sairang. The project has received approval from Shri Gadkari for ₹ 1742.11 crore. The National Highway (Original)-North East (NH(O)-NE) initiative includes this 24.41 km project, which is being carried out using the Engineering, Procurement, and Construction (EPC) technique. The objective is to improve road safety by enabling unhindered traffic flow and avoiding populated areas and crowded metropolitan zones.

Furthermore, NH 715K would connect Majuli and Jorhat with a new 2-lane highway with paved shoulders, costing ₹ 382.10 crore. One of the project’s solutions to the lack of direct road connectivity between Jorhat and Majuli is a 20.479 km flyover on NH-715. According to Shri Gadkari, this plan will greatly enhance socioeconomic conditions, encourage travel, and save road users’ journey times and vehicle operating expenses.

In Tanakpur, Uttarakhand, Shri Gadkari laid the cornerstone for eight national highway projects totaling ₹ 2,217 crore. Roads to well-known locations, including Pithoragarh, Jim Corbett National Park, Bageshwar, Manaskhand temples, and Nainital, will be widened as part of these initiatives. Along with increasing tourism, other goals of the development include enhancing safety, cutting down on travel time, and strengthening the local economy.

The Union Minister dedicated and placed the cornerstones for thirty national highway projects totaling ₹ 4,755 crore in Haridwar. These projects include the Dudhdhari-raised flyover in Haridwar and the widening of highways in Rudraprayag and Chamoli from Lameri to Karnaprayag. The projects are anticipated to improve connectivity between Rishikesh and the border between China and India, facilitate travel, and lessen traffic in Haridwar, a holy city.

Under the direction of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chief Minister Pushkar Singh Dhami, Shri Gadkari reaffirmed his commitment to the advancement of Uttarakhand. The government’s emphasis on building strong infrastructure, guaranteeing safety, and promoting regional economic growth is highlighted by these calculated investments.
