Centre sanctions Rs 33 crore for Delhi-Hisar-Sirsa road
Chandigarh, Apr 26 (UNI) The Union Ministry of Road Transport and Highways has sanctioned three proposals of the Haryana government, including a project for the repair and carpeting of the city portion of the Delhi-Hisar-Sirsa road amounting to Rs 33 crore from the Central Road Fund.
The project cover repairs, carpeting, brimming and patch up work of National Highway No 10 passing through Hisar-Sirsa.
Haryana Minister of State for Urban Development Savitri Jindal, who along with state MP Naveen Jindal made consistent efforts to get these proposals sanctioned, said after the construction of the Hisar pass, the original National Highway passing through the city got neglected and went into a total despair.
The State Government had requested the Union Ministry to consider the matter on a priority basis.
These projects would benefit road traffic between Hisar and Sirsa making the flow of traffic smoother, Ms Jindal said.
Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda said this was an important step in realising the dream of the late Mr O P Jindal to give Hisar its due importance.
