Nitin Gadkari unveils Rs 38.3bn National Highway projects in Haryana
In a grand event, Union Minister for Road Transport and Highways, Nitin Gadkari, officially inaugurated and laid the foundation stone for four National Highway projects in Haryana’s Sonepat, Karnal, and Ambala regions.
The infrastructural projects, which amount to a total worth of INR 3,835 crores, were unveiled in the presence of Haryana’s Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar, Deputy Chief Minister Dushyant Chautala, and a host of other government officials.
A flagship project among these is the construction of 11 flyovers on the 8-lane National Highway 44 stretching from Delhi to Panipat in Sonepat, set to cost around INR 890 crores.
Spanning a total length of 24 km, the highway will bolster connectivity between the economic hubs of Haryana, Punjab, and Jammu and Kashmir, enhancing the transportation of goods and finished products from agricultural to industrial areas. Furthermore, the Delhi-Panipat corridor promises to simplify tourist movement towards Haryana, Punjab, Himachal Pradesh, and Jammu and Kashmir.
Another significant project is the Karnal Greenfield 35 km 6-lane Ring Road, which is set to cost approximately INR 1,690 crore. More than just a road, it is touted to be the future lifeline for the region’s development and prosperity. This ring road aims to bypass the city traffic of Karnal, offering an easier commuting option for those traveling to Jammu, Punjab, Himachal Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, and Southern Haryana. This development is also expected to contribute significantly to reducing pollution and traffic accidents in the region.
