Rajnath announces Rs.3,000 crore ring road for Lucknow

Lucknow, June 9 (IANS) Local MP and Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh announced on Tuesday a Rs.3,000 crore gift for the state capital in the form of a 100-km ring road.

On a two-day visit to his parliamentary constituency, the former UP chief minister said that the union government had approved construction of the ring road which would go a long way in decongesting the traffic here.

He said that his cabinet colleague Nitin Gadkari had informed him of the approval vide a letter on Monday evening.

Speaking at an event here, he further informed that the National Highway Authority of India (NHAI) had already begun work on preparing a detailed project report (DPR) of the ambitious project.

Appreciating the state government led by Akhilesh Yadav for being pro-development, Singh said he was hopeful that once the DPR was through, the follow up in land acquisition and construction work will be a smooth process.

The project is estimated to be completed in two-and-a-half years.
