NHAI presentation on Bihar highways

Written by: Staff

New Delhi, June 5 (UNI) A total of 890 km of highways in Bihar have been taken up for widening (4-6 laning) under Phase III of the National Highway Development Project.

This was revealed at a presentation made by a team of officials of the National Highway Authority of India (NHAI) before Railway Minister Lalu Prasad here today. The NHAI team was led by Chief General Manager Mahesh Kumar.

The projects include 4-6 laning of various stretches of National Highways in Bihar, including Purnea-Khagaria, Patna-Bakhtiarpur, Khagaria-Bakhtiarpur, Patna-Hajipur-Muzaffarpur, Muzaffarpur-Sonbarsa, Motihari-Raxaul, Hajipur-Chapra-Gopalganj, Patna-Buxar and Forbesganj-Jogwani sections.

Earlier, Mr Prasad directed the NHAI officials to carry out the alignment of National Highways in such a manner that would displace minimum number of families.

The NHAI team presented a new alignment for widening of the Chapra-Hajipur highway in which 43 km out of a total length of 64 km would be converted into a bypass. As a result, several villages would remain unaffected in Chapra, the parliamentary constituency of the railway Minister.

Chapra Bypass has been planned about 4.5 km outside of the city limits. The alignment of Chapra-Gopalganj National Highway has also been done in a manner which will ensure minimum displacement of families.
