Union Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari laid foundation stones for nine projects and dedicated several road projects in Jharkhand. Among the projects he initiated, the Kalimandir-Dimna road to Baliguma double-decker elevated road, the reconstruction of Bhuiya Sinan to Susni via Hata road in East Singhbhum, and ROB on NH-75E between Jhikpani and Talaburu railway station were a few notable ones. The double-decker corridor, which is estimated to cost around ₹1,500 crore and be 10.2km in length, will ease traffic in the area by providing an alternative route for vehicles going towards Kolkata. However, the forest department has sought clarifications on 29 points on the project from the highway authorities, as the area is close to Dalma Wildlife Sanctuary.
Gadkari also laid the foundation stones for 18 other projects, including the four-laning of Gola to Bokaro Jaina More (NH320), the ROB between Daltonganj and Rajhura in Palamu district, and the widening of two lanes of Chainpur-Mahuadam in Gumla district. He dedicated three projects to the nation in Ranchi, including the vehicle underpass at Patel Chowk on NH33 in Ramgarh district, the strengthening of a section of road on NH-100 in Chatra district, and the widening and strengthening of two lanes on NH-99 in Chatra district. An official statement from the PMO confirmed the same.
