Haryana’s first “Green Road” will be constructed at village Lokra near Pataudi in Gurugram district. The 2.24-kilometre long road would be constructed by the state Public Works (Building and Roads) Department at a cost of Rs 1.25 lakh. Sand will be used in this latest technique of road construction rather than bitumen and other elements spreading pollution.
“My department, on an experimental basis, will construct such three roads in Karnal, Hansi and Pataudi. Moreover, development works to the tune of Rs 10,000 crore are being carried out in the entire state. The Dwarka Northern Peripheral Road would be upgraded as 16-lane National Highway which would be the widest highway in the country,” said Haryana Public Works (Building and Roads) minister Rao Narbir Singh on Saturday while laying the foundation stone of first Green Road at village Lokra.
“There is a plan for metro extension up to Subhash Chowk in Gurgaon and residents will also get to use Metro soon. The Manesar-Palwal expressway has already been dedicated to the people and Manesar-Kundli section would be completed in 400 days as its construction has already been started. An elevated flyover would also be constructed at a cost of Rs 700 crore from South City to Badshahpur,” he said. Vinny Curry Jersey
