Infrastructure Upgrades on Indian National Highways

The Ministry of Road Transport and Highways (MoRTH) has approved a budget of Rs 699.19 crore for the enhancement of a section of National Highway 58 in Palanpur, Gujarat, according to PTI. NH-58 plays a vital role in connecting Gujarat and Rajasthan, facilitating access to key destinations like Ambaji Temple, Udaipur, Polo Forest, and various historical sites.

This funding will be utilized for upgrading the Khokhra Gujarat Border – Vijayanagar – Antarsuba – Mathasur road section of NH-58, as officially announced.

The project involves transforming the existing single or two-lane road into a two-lane road with paved shoulders, including realignment across 14 stretches through challenging terrain.

In another development, MoRTH has allocated Rs 576.22 crore for the four-laning of the Yedegowdanahalli to Arjunahalli stretch of NH-373 in Hassan district, Karnataka, covering a distance of 22.3 kilometers. This route is crucial for accessing popular tourist destinations such as Chikamagaluru, Belur, Halebeedu, and Shravanabelagola.

Furthermore, the ministry has allotted Rs 421.15 crore for constructing a four-lane Gauripur Bypass along NH-17 (New)/NH-31(Old), spanning from Dumardoha Pt-II to the Baladmara road in Dhubri district, Assam. Covering a distance of 9.61 kilometers, this initiative aims to alleviate traffic congestion in Gauripur town and address safety concerns associated with sharp bends on the current highway.
