Union Minister for Road Transport and Highways Nitin Gadkari on Monday inaugurated nine national highway projects worth Rs 1,357 crore in Rajasthan.
Gadkari also discussed the widening of the Ninawa section from Sanchore on NH-168A in the state. “It will increase the business of granite industries of Chalaur district and will make it easier for the farmers to reach Suratgarh Mandi,” he said.
Talking about enhancing India’s strategic strength, the minister said the 2-lane Sriganganagar to Raisinghnagar on NH-911 and the Sriganganagar reinforcement from Suratgarh on NH-62 will make it easier to reach the international border and the military station on both sides of the road.
“Not just the better connectivity across the border, new jobs will also be created, which will move Rajasthan towards progress and prosperity,” he added.
Moreover, the 4-lane flyover in Suratgarh city will ensure safe and congestion-free traffic.
The minister also announced 25 new bypasses in the state at a cost of Rs 5,000 crore.
