To decongest the traffic in Kurukhshetra, an elevated track will be constructed on Kurukshetra-Narwana railway line at a cost of Rs 224.58 crore. Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar on Tuesday gave in-principle approval to the project to be undertaken by the Haryana Rail Infrastructure Development Corporation (HRIDC).
Out of the total project cost of Rs 224.58 crore, an amount of Rs 100 crore will be shared by the Union ministry of Railways. The elevated railway track would do away with five level crossings in the city, reducing traffic jams.
While stating this, an official spokesman said that this would be the second Elevated Railway Line in the state since the CM recently launched the country’s first elevated railway track project over the Rohtak-Gohana- Panipat section of the railway track in Rohtak city being constructed at a cost of Rs 315.71 crore.
He said that the construction of Elevated Railway Line in Kurukshetra would not only ease the traffic but also help saving of time and fuel of public due to removal of level crossings. Read More
