The state government of Haryana has accelerated the construction work on the Karnal Ring Road project, aimed at providing a significant boost to connectivity for key highway cities and nearby areas. The project, with an estimated investment of Rs 1,700 crore, is set to alleviate traffic congestion and enhance accessibility in the region. The six-lane circular road, spanning 34.5 kilometers, will traverse through 23 villages in the Karnal district, effectively linking them to the city and National Highway 44.
Local agencies have successfully completed the process of land acquisition, securing 219 hectares for the project. Preparations are now underway, with land leveling commencing near Kunjpura, approximately 10 kilometers from Karnal city. The financing of this substantial road project will be shared by the Haryana government and the central government. The expected timeline for the completion of the Karnal Ring Road is 2-2.5 years.
Beyond addressing the traffic congestion on GT Road, the new road, boasting a width of 60 meters, will enable commuters from neighboring villages to directly access the highway without having to enter Karnal city. This development will greatly enhance the overall transportation infrastructure in the area and contribute to improved connectivity and reduced congestion.
