Cabinet Committee clears NH project in Rajasthan
The cabinet committee on economic affairs has given its approval for two-lanning with paved shoulders of the Uniara-Nainwa-Hindoli-Jahajpur-Shahpura-Gulabpura section of NH-148D in Rajasthan under the National Highways Development Project (NHDP) Phase IV, on engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) basis.
The cost is estimated to be Rs774.33 crore. The total length of road will be approximately 204 km.
The project will expedite improvement of infrastructure in Rajasthan and also reduce the time and cost of travel particularly for heavy traffic, plying on NH-148D between Uniara-Nainwa-Hindoli-Jahajpur-Shahpura-Gulabpura. This stretch connects three National Highways that is NH-79, NH-12 and NH-116 and passes through three districts of Bhilwara, Bundi and Tonk. This stretch will help in improving the socio-economic condition of this region of the state. It will also increase the employment potential for local labourers for project activities.
