Chandigarh to Delhi in two hours-Gadkari launches Rs 20k crore infra projects in Haryana
Prime Minister has conceived Rs 100 lakh crore worth of infrastructure development towards achieving the five trillion economy
To facilitate the development of a new economic corridor worth about Rs 20 thousand crore, Union Minister for Road Transport, Highways and MSMEs Nitin Gadkari on Tuesday inaugurated and laid the foundation stones of various highway projects in Haryana, using a virtual platform.
Speaking on the occasion, he said these important projects will decongest big cities while reducing travel time. “It will take about 2 hours to reach Delhi Airport from Chandigarh against 4 hours now. The projects will also save on time, fuels and cost, as well as boost development in backward areas of the state,” Gadkari said.
He said Rs 2 lakh crore worth of works will be completed in the first two years, giving a boost to progress and prosperity in the country.
The Union Minister recalled that the Prime Minister has conceived Rs 100 lakh crore worth of infrastructure development towards achieving the five trillion economy.
The Minister said people in Haryana should consider adopting crops for biofuels, which have the capacity to improve their all-round life.
This will ensure employment opportunities within the villages, which will also stop mass migration in search of employment.
Gadkari said the proposed Delhi-Mumbai Expressway, Trans Haryana Economic Corridor and the Gurugram-Rewari-Ateli-Narnaul are the highways of a new emerging India, which will bring development in all corners of Haryana.
