Union Minister Nitin Gadkari on Thursday laid the foundation stones for highway projects worth Rs 3,000 crore in Andhra Pradesh, an official statement said. The national highway projects, once completed, will provide greenfield road connectivity to Kakinada SEZ, SEZ port, fishing harbour and Kakinada Anchorage Port. This will enable hassle-free the export of rice, sea food, oil meals, iron ore, bio-fuel and granite, among others, through the Kakinada Port. The road transport and highways minister said the projects include construction of five flyovers. This would provide smooth and safe traffic movement for places like Namavaram, Satellite City, Mandapeta, Ramchandrapuram, Kakinada, Undarajavaram, Nidadavolu, Tanuku Town and Kaikaram. Special safety features will be ensured for the rectification of blackspots. The other three projects include four-laning of Vakalapudi-Uppada-Annavaram and Samarlakota-Achampeta Junction and construction of two-lane with paved shoulders from Rampachodavaram to Koyyuru.
