New Delhi, Sep 24 : The cabinet Tuesday approved the upgrading of National Highway-211 in Maharashtra under the National Highways Development Programme (NHDP) with a total outlay of Rs.1,057.82 crore.


The Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs (CCEA) approved the development of the Solapur-Yedeshi section of the national highway-211.

The project will be developed as a four-lane road on a design, build, finance, operate and transfer (DBFOT) basis, with a total length of 99 km.

"The project will expedite improvement of infrastructure in Maharashtra and also reduce the time and cost of travel for traffic, particularly heavy traffic, plying between Solapur and Yedeshi," the CCEA said in a statement.
