Union Minister Nitin Gadkari lays foundation stone for 13 highway projects in Manipur

New Delhi: Union minister for road transport and highways Nitin Gadkari on Monday laid the foundation stone for 13 highway projects worth Rs 3,000 crore in Manipur.

The minister also inaugurated a road safety project in the north eastern state.

The said projects involve a road length of 316 kilometres. “Paving the way for development of Manipur, these roads will enhance better connectivity, convenience and economic growth in this NE State,” a statement issued by the ministry of road transport and highways said.

Gadkari also asked Manipur Chief Minister N Biren Singh, who was also present at the web event, to expedite land acquisition and utility shifting work in the State urgently, so that road projects could be hastened up.

Gadkari said that a detailed project report for an elevated road in Imphal is being prepared and work on the project will begin in two to three months.

Gadkari said that with dredging complete in Brahmaputra and Barak rivers, it was now possible to transport people and consignments through waterways. The minister suggested linking Imphal with this river route, which is barely 50-60 kms, for added benefits to the State economy.
