All pending works of national highways construction in the state would be fast-tracked and completed within scheduled timelines. The central ministry has issued directions for completion of the Koilwar-Bihta four-lane highway. Tender invitations were also decided for projects including ₹12,00-crore. The projects include the Danapur-Bihta elevated road which will shorten the distance between Patna and Ara, widening of four lanes of Adalwari-Manikpur, Manikpur- Sahebganj and Sahebganj- Areraj roads, among others.
The Centre also agreed to complete the alignment work of a bridge on Adalwari Manikpur road on Gandak river by the end of this month itself. The state further requested the central government to grant sanction for the remaining projects of 370-km roads under the Bharatmala and PM's special package. These include widening the four-lane of Sultanganj-Deoghar Kanwariya road and providing connectivity to Bodhgaya and Rajgir, both tourist places of the state, to the Amas-Darbhanga Expressway.
