The completion of the ring road from the lower underpass to Fetri, extending to Kamptee, is anticipated within the next two months, according to Gadkari.
Integrating Green Spaces: The Nation’s First ‘Bird Park’
In an eco-conscious move, an 8-hectare ‘Bird Park’ near Jamtha is set to become the country’s first. Minister Gadkari shared plans to cultivate various fruit varieties within the park, creating a natural habitat for birds. The park will also feature amenities such as a cycle track and a coffee shop, promoting recreational activities amidst nature. Gadkari emphasized the need to remove encroachments and widen roads in Hingna city for planned development.
Fadnavis’ Perspective: Overcoming Challenges for Swift Completion
Deputy Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis acknowledged the initial challenges in constructing the outer ring road. However, he commended the accelerated progress achieved in the last two years. Fadnavis highlighted the significance of the outer ring road in alleviating traffic concerns, especially for those traveling from the Samriddhi Highway. This infrastructure development ensures smooth transportation through the outer ring road, accessible via ‘Rim Transport.’
Project Overview: Collaboration and Financial Investment
The project, executed in collaboration with the National Highway Authority of the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways of the Central Government, boasts a total length of 33.50 km. With a budget provision of 856 crore, the outer ring road features three flyovers, two major bridges, and 22 bus-way shelter centers spanning two and a half kilometers. Bamboo crash barriers have been installed to enhance safety, and a speed limit of 100 km per hour is imposed, as indicated in the National Highway Authority’s informative presentation.
In conclusion, the Nagpur to Butibori Road upgrade marks a transformative phase in the city’s infrastructure. Minister Gadkari’s visionary approach, coupled with collaborative efforts and substantial financial investment, ensures that Nagpur is poised for unparalleled growth and connectivity in the near future.
