Work in full swing on Amritsar-Jamnagar Economic Corridor stretch in Gujarat: Nitin Gadkari
The stretch is part of Amritsar-Jamnagar Economic Corridor in Gujarat under Bharatmala Pariyojana Phase- one and is being built at a project cost of Rs 2,030 crore.
In a series of tweets, Minister for Road Transport and Highways Nitin Gadkari said that once the project is completed, the travel time within this section will cut down by two hours and travel distance will lessen by 60 km.
The median and avenue plantation throughout the stretch would improve the ecosystem and boost sustainable development goals (SDGs).
The stretch would help in the easy movement of border forces/armed forces/military vehicles as it is closer to the Indo-Pak Border, the minister said.
