Elevated-Corridor
Bihar Government has planned to develop a four-lane elevated road on the 9-km congested stretch of NH-82 via Rajgir connecting Gaya to Biharsharif through reserve forest and historical places. It is estimated to cost ₹3,200 crore. The Union ministry of road transport and highways (MoRTH) has given its consent to the Road Construction Department (RCD) for the elevated bypass alignment on existing two-lane road from Vanganga to SDM office. RCD is building the Gaya-Biharsharif portion of NH as four-lane from the funding of MoRTH.

The work on the road between Vanganga and SDM office was left unattended as it may take a toll on archaeological attractions like Bimbisar Jail, Chariot Wheel Mark, Maniyar Math and Cyclopean Wall. Additional chief secretary (RCD) Amrit Lal Meena informed that pre-construction activities like forest clearance and utilities shifting would start after MoRTH clears the new alignment. The 8.7-km-long elevated road would be built in cable-stayed style in addition to 4km four-lane at-grade road. The Central government has allocated ₹2,000 crore for building the NH from Gaya to Biharsharif via Rajgir.
