MP in fast lane? Gadkari lays foundation for road projects worth 2,300 cr

Madhya Pradesh is set to have better road connectivity with adjoining Maharashtra and southern states of India with Union Minister for Road Transport and Highways Nitin Gadkari on Monday laying the foundation stone for as many as five road projects worth a total of 2,300 crore. Apart from the obvious benefit of a smoother and quicker road movement, the projects are also being touted as a major source for employment during the construction phase and would attract investments once complete.

Gadkari laid the foundation stone through a remote at a function organized on Monday in Indore. State CM Shivraj Singh Chauhan was also present at the same event.

As per a report in news agency PTI, a total of 119 kms of national highways would be laid across the state of Madhya Pradesh. Some of the highlighted routes as part of the projects include a four-lane highway between Indore's Tejaji Nagar and Balwara, a four-lane highway between Indore and Raghogarh and a six-lane flyover at Indore's Rau Circle.

Gadkari has previously highlighted how expanding and strengthening road network across the country is a priority. The National Highway Authority of India (NHAI) recently made it into the Guinness Book of World Records after a 75-km stretch of highway between Amravati and Akola in Maharashtra was laid in just around 105 hours.
