Union Minister for Road Transport, Highways and MSMEs Nitin Gadkari will tomorrow lay the foundation stones of nine national highway projects with a total length of nearly 262-km worth over Rs 2752 crore in Tripura.
The projects, on completion, will provide faster and hassle-free inter-state and international connectivity to Bangladesh, and will be a major stride towards strengthening the tourism sector of the State.
The new projects will provide better connectivity, fast and safe movement of traffic to various tourist places, historical places and religious places in the entire State.
“They are likely to generate a large number of employment and self-employment opportunities to the unskilled, semi-skilled and skilled manpower of the region,” the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways said in a statement.
The projects will reduce travel time and maintenance cost of the vehicles and saving of fuel.
“Implementation of the project would result in enhanced socio-economic conditions of the locality. These will improve transport of agricultural goods and access to greater markets, thereby reducing the cost of goods and services” the Ministry said.
These will also create easy and speedy access to health care and emergency services. In a nutshell, after completion of the above projects there will be a quantum jump in the development of tourism, economic and international connectivity of this region.
