"Union Minister Gadkari Greenlights Rs. 382 Crore Highway Project in Assam"

Minister of Road Transport and Highways, Nitin Gadkari, announced on Tuesday the sanctioning of Rs 382.10 crore for the construction of a new 2-lane highway with paved shoulders connecting Majuli and Jorhat on the recently designated NH 715K in Assam.

The project, which encompasses the construction of a flyover on NH-715 along with its approaches and service roads, will span a total length of 20.5 kilometers.

In a social media post, Gadkari highlighted that this initiative aims to establish direct road connectivity between Jorhat and Majuli, addressing the current lack of such a link.

"Presently, residents rely on river ferries across the Brahmaputra during daylight hours, which poses safety concerns, especially during periods of high flooding," Gadkari stated.

"The development of approach roads and the Majuli bridge will ensure continuous connectivity, significantly improving the socio-economic conditions of the local population and promoting tourism," he added.

Gadkari emphasized that this strategic infrastructure investment is expected to reduce travel time and vehicle operating costs for road users.
