Mr. Nitin Gadkari Releases Rs 1973 Crore For Srinagar-Baramulla-Uri National Highway Works
On April 10th and 11th, Nitin Gadkari, Union Minister for Road, Transport, and National Highways, is scheduled to visit the Union Territories of Jammu and Kashmir, and Ladakh. Mr. Nitin Gadkari has approved the spending of Rs 1973 crore for the Srinagar-Baramulla-Uri National Highway works before his two-day trip to Jammu and Kashmir in April.
The Road and Highways Minister has already released Rs 992.43 crore for paved shoulders on the two-lane Baramulla Greenfield Bypass on the Srinagar-Baramulla-Uri National Highway. For the Pattan Greenfield Bypass on Srinagar-Baramulla-Uri National Highway 01, he also released Rs 980.21 crore. In Jammu and Kashmir, National Highways and tunnels worth Rs 1 lakh crore are being built, and many of them are almost finished.
The Zojila Tunnel
On April 10, he will go to the Zojila tunnel being built on the Srinagar-Kargil National Highway to inspect the ongoing work. The tunnel’s construction is scheduled to be finished by 2026, but there are some indications that it may happen sooner.
The Union Territory of Ladakh will have a year-round road connection thanks to the construction of the Zojila tunnel. Due to snowfall in the Zojila area, the Srinagar-Kargil-Leh National Highway must currently be closed for roughly three to four months during the winter.
However, the tunnel’s construction will make it easier for travelers to travel to Ladakh all year long, which will benefit both local residents of the Union Territory and tourists as well as the troops stationed in Eastern Ladakh and other areas near the Line of Actual Control (LAC) with China and the Line of Control (LoC) with Pakistan as their supply lines won’t be disrupted.
On April 11, Gadkari will travel to Ramban and Banihal with Dr. Jitendra Singh, Union Minister of State in the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO), to assess the status of ongoing construction along the Jammu-Srinagar National Highway, where the T5 tunnel was recently opened to relieve traffic congestion in the Panthyal area.
The remaining widening work on the Jammu-Srinagar National Highway is anticipated to be finished shortly after, cutting the travel time between Jammu and Srinagar to four or five hours. During his two-day visit, Gadkari is likely to announce the beginning of work on additional highways and roads in Jammu and Kashmir. Additionally, he’s scheduled to officially open a few recently finished projects.
The Delhi-Katra Expressway from Udhampur to Katra will be reviewed by the Union Minister of State in the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) Dr. Jitendra Singh on the 27th of March in Hiranagar. According to sources, the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) has agreed that, whenever possible, the alignment of the Expressway will be maintained so that shopkeepers and owners of commercial establishments do not suffer. The Expressway’s construction will not, however, be compromised in any way.
A Few More Projects
The Jammu-Akhnoor highway is also being worked on rapidly, and a flyover was opened to traffic last year. Rajouri and Poonch have both been added to the work’s reach. Additionally, a National Highway from Vikram Chowk and Satwari to the Suchetgarh International Border has been approved, which will promote border tourism.
The construction of a road connecting the holy cave shrine of Shri Amarnath Ji from Pahalgam-Panjtarni-SangamTop-Baltal is also ready, according to the National Highway Infrastructure Development Corporation Limited (NHIDCL). The project may be approved this year and finished in the following four to five years. (located at the height of 13,000 feet from sea level). Once the road is constructed, devotees from all over the nation as well as Jammu and Kashmir will be able to travel to the cave shrine in the south Kashmir Himalayas and pay obeisance.
