The four laning of the road will help in reducing the time and cost of travel. Heavy traffic plying between this intersection will also ease out. The central government is hopeful that  the development of this stretch will also help in uplifting the socio-economic condition of this region in the State.

The Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs, chaired by the Prime Minister Narendra Modi, has given approval for this project.
