On Tuesday, Nitin Gadkari, the Union Minister for Road Transport and Highways, officially opened and laid the cornerstone for 11 National Highway projects totaling Rs 5,600 crore in Rajasthan, which are intended to reduce traffic within the city.
Seven projects totaling Rs 1,850 crore and measuring a total of 221 km in length had their foundation stones set as well. These initiatives will offer direct access to the Udaipur airport from the well-known religious site Nathdwara.
The National Highway 48 portion between Kishangarh and Gulbapura will be 6-laned, which is expected to hasten the economic and social growth of the districts of Ajmer and Bhilwara.
The Gulabpura-Chittorgarh portion will be 6-laned in an effort to improve connectivity between the Bhilwara and Chittorgarh districts Udaipur, Jaipur, and Kota sectors.
The National Highway 162A near Fatehnagar will soon have a 4-lane Road Over Bridge (ROB), which is designed to direct traffic away from the railway crossing.
As part of the Central Road & Infrastructure Fund (CRIF), work on a high-level bridge across the Chambal River in Mandrayal began on Tuesday.
By building this bridge, communication between Mandrayal, Karauli in Rajasthan, and Sabalgarh in Madhya Pradesh will be preserved.
