Chandigarh, August 29: Haryana Public Works (Building and Roads) Minister, Rao Narbir Singh said that the Chief Minister, Mr Manohar Lal not only made strenuous efforts for commencing the construction work of 135 kilometer long Kundli Manesar Palwal expressway but also decided to make it six lane instead of four lane.
          In a statement released here today, Rao Narbir Singh said that it is the beginning of an era of revolution in Railway Over Bridge (ROB) and Railway Under Bridge (ROB) with the start of construction of 63 ROB and RUB started during 45 months tenure of the present Government. Out of these 32 have been dedicated to the people of the State and work on 31 is in progress. Whereas during previous Governments since the formation of Haryana State only 64 ROB and RUBs were constructed.  As many as 63 more Railway crossings would be construed in the State in near future. There are 592 manned railway crossings in Haryana out of which ROB and RUB work was completed for 190 crossings by the present Government which gave a new look to the road network of the State. The Government has planned that there would not be no unmanned railway crossings by 2020.
          Rao Narbir Singh said that the construction work of Kundli Manesar Palwal expressway which was expected to be completed by 2010 before the Commonwealth Games in New Delhi, is started by the present Government and thus is an achievement. The expressway is expected to be opened for public in September 2018. This mega project would be inaugurated by Prime Minister, Mr Narendra Modi for which we have asked for his availability and time.
          Rao Narbir Singh said that 135 kilometer long Kundli Manesar Palwal expressway would cover five districts of Haryana namely Sonepat, Jhajjar, Gurugram, Mewat and Palwal. Completion of this expressway would not only benefit the Northern Haryana but also would ease the traffic in the National Capital area. It would join the National Expressway-II linking Ghaziabad and Noida of Uttar Pradesh, and would provide fast speed connectivity to the ports of southern states with south Haryana districts of Gurugram, Faridabad and Palwal.
          Rao Narbir Singh said that Greenfield National Highway project would be utilized from Sohna to Firozepur Zhirka, and Kurukshetra, Ambala gateway to Narnaul via Kalanaur Charkhi Dadri Road.
          He said that the repair work of roads in the state has been done with complete transparency in all the 90 constituencies of the State.
