Gadkari lays foundation for 2 national highways projects
New Delhi: Union Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari on Friday inaugurated and laid the groundwork for two INR 1,791.46 crore national highway projects in Dhule, Maharashtra.
Gadkari said the projects will boost economic development in Dhule and Nandurbar districts and create new job opportunities in the district.
Planned under the Bharatmala scheme, these projects will provide modern and high-quality roads to Dhule-Nandurbar districts and strengthen Maharashtra’s connection to Gujarat, Karnataka and other states. The minister added that this will help reduce traffic congestion in the two states and Chalisgaon.
The projects, once completed, will facilitate people’s access to tourist attractions such as the Gautala Copper Caves and Shrine, the world-famous Ajanta Caves and Dulatabad Fort, as well as the Chalisgaon Railway Station.
He said it would be easy to access religious places in Dhule as well as Aurangabad district. He said that the Shewali-Nandurbar road project will be beneficial for the development of the tribal areas in the region.
