Centre approves over Rs 174 crore for NH Project in Odisha

The Central government has approved Rs 174.21 crore for expansion and two-laning of National Highway 53 going through Angul district of Odisha.

Union Minister of Road Transport and Highways Nitin Gadkari, in a tweet, said a project has been approved for widening and strengthening of existing SL, IL & DL to 2-lane with a paved shoulder in the selected stretches including 3 bypasses at Rengali, Bajrakot and Takua in Angul on NH 53 with a budget of Rs 174.21 crore.

“Since this highway connects the major industrial and mining corridors with Paradeep port, widening and strengthening of the selected missing stretches and construction of bypasses will enable speed mobility to ensure more safety for road users,” he said.

Besides, the stretch will facilitate the smooth movement of heavy vehicles and boost the socio-economic development in this industrial corridor, which consists of large companies including Coal India, NTPC, Jindal Steel, the minister added.

Union Education Minister Dharmendra Pradhan has thanked Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Gadkari for the project. It would not only ensure smooth vehicular movement on Sambalpur-Angul route, but also boost economic development of the region, he said.
