Union Minister for Road Transport, Highways and Shipping Nitin Gadkari has announced that a new access control highway would be constructed between Delhi and Jaipur, which would enable the commuters to cover the distance of 270 km between the two cities in just two hours.
The work on this highway would begin from January 2017 and is expected to cost Rs 16,000 crore.
Gadkari informed that land acquisition for this new highway would begin soon and suggested that Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar should promote development along both sides of this highway so as to bring down the cost.
He laid the foundation for the improvement of three junctions on National Highway-8 (NH-8) in Gurgaon, which would cost Rs 1,005 crore and said that the work would be completed in 15 months rather than 30 months.
He also announced that cameras would be installed on NH-8 under intelligent transport system to keep watch on traffic rule violators.
