Rohtak-Hansi-Hisar road to be 4-laned: Deepender Hooda
The four-laning of Rohtak-Hansi-Hisar road is all set to start soon as the Public Private Partnership Approval Committee of the Central government has finally approved the ambitious Rs 959.25 crore project to four-lane this important road link in Haryana, Rohtak MP Deepender Singh Hooda said today.
Thanking UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Surface Transport Minister C P Joshi, Mr Hooda said that the project would open new vistas of progress for the larger part of the state.
"With the achievement of this first goal, now our endeavour would be for expediting the four lanning of Hisar-Fatehabad-Sirsa-Dabwali upto Punjab Border, he added.
Mr Hooda, who had held rounds of meetings to impress upon the Union Road Transport and Highways Ministry for clearance of this project, a long standing demand of the people of the area had been fulfilled with this approval, he added.
He said that apart from him, Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda too had been repeatedly impressing upon the Central Government to sanction this project. He said that keeping in view the long standing demand for such a road, he had also raised the issue even in Parliament so as to get it approved at the earliest.
Mr Hooda said that the National Highway Authority of India would shortly tender this 98.89 km long project and work on it would soon commence. In all, five bye-passes would be constructed under this project. These would be in Hansi, Meham, Kharkada, Madina and Rohtak, which would provide big relief to the people of those cities and ease traffic. The road would pass through the heart of Haryana and give a big boost to the economy, he added.
