COMPLETION OF THE BEAWAR-GOMTI 4-LANE HIGHWAY WILL FACILITATE HASSLE-FREE TRAVEL AS WELL AS SAVE LIVES
- Rs. 722 crores Highway project
- From Delhi to Jaipur, Ajmer, Beawar, Rajsamand, Udaipur and Ahmedabad
- Once completed fatal accidents will be reduced
Jaipur, 4 June: The Beawar-Gomti NH-8 which has been lying incomplete for the past 7 years will now be developed from a double-lane to 4-lane highway. The much-awaited sanction for the project has been approved by the Standing Finance Committee of the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways, Government of India. The Beawar-Gomti Highway will be constructed with a paved shoulder at a cost of Rs. 721.62 crores. The 100-km stretch will be completed in two packages. The first 50-km stretch will be constructed at a cost of Rs. 380.29 crores and the final 50-km stretch at a cost of Rs. 341.33 crores. According to the project, along with 6 flyovers, 40 smaller bridges will also be constructed.
Rajsamand MP, Diya Kumari, expressed her gratitude to Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi and Union Minister of Road Transport & Highways, Shri Nitin Gadkari for the financial sanction of the Beawar-Gomti 4-Lane project. The MP has continually lobbied and worked hard with complete earnestness both inside the Lok Sabha as well as outside for this project. It is to be recalled that during the election last year, Diya Kumari had promised the electorate that she would pitch strongly for this project. The MP’s year long efforts have finally brought the project to fruition for the people of the constituency.
The MP took on this project with sincerity as the incompletion of the 4-lane has resulted in a high number of road accidents and loss of lives. With the completion of the Beawar-Gomti Highway, the fear of road accidents in the area will also reduce. This highway has many ‘black spots’ where accidents occurred due to wrongful overtaking of vehicles. Currently, this road is on the Jaipur-Beawar 6-lane and Gomti-Udaipur 4-lane. After the Beawar-Gomti 4-lane is completed, travel from Delhi to Jaipur, Ajmer, Beawar, Rajsamand, Udaipur and Ahmedabad will be facilitated.
