Bhopal, Apr 28 (PTI) A 300-km-long Chambal Expressway, connecting Madhya Pradesh with Uttar Pradesh and Rajasthan, will be constructed through the ravines of Chambal region, an official said here today.
The decision to construct the six-lane expressway was taken in a meeting held between Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan and Union Minister for Road Transport Nitin Gadkari in Delhi yesterday, a Public Relations department official said here.
“After his meeting with the Union minister, the chief minister informed that a 300-km-long, six-lane Chambal expressway is proposed in Madhya Pradesh. The right-of-way (a type of easement granted or reserved over the land for transportation purposes) for this expressway will be 100 metre,” the official added.
He said 2500 hectares of land will be acquired for this project, out of which nearly 50 per cent of the land is owned by the state government.
“Chambal Expressway will be constructed from the greenfield alignment through the ravines and along the banks of Chambal river,” he added.
The expressway would start from the state highway (SH) no. 6 at Pali and will connect to Uttar Pradesh on the national highway 92 (Bhongaon-Gwalior), the official said.
The expressway will cross national highway 3 (Mumbai-Agra) before passing through various areas in Madhya Pradesh, he said.
