80.82 km Phagwara to Rupnagar section on NH-344A being executed in Hybrid Annuity Mode: Gadkari

New Delhi/IBNS: In a major boost to the road infrastructure in Punjab, the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) has developed a 4-Lane wide section from Phagwara to Rupnagar on NH-344A.

​In a series of tweets, Union Minister for Road Transport and Highways Nitin Gadkari said the project is being executed in Hybrid Annuity Mode at a cost of Rs 1,367 Crore spanning a length of 80.82 km.

The section connects major cities Amritsar - Jalandhar - Chandigarh and extends mobility to Kapurthala, Jalandhar, Ludhiana, Ropar, and Mohali.

The minister said the alignment lessens the travel time from Jalandhar to Chandigarh to almost half and provides direct access to Khatkarkalan, which is the ancestral home of Shaheed Bhagat Singh.

Gadkari said resonating with the vision of Prime Minister Narendra Modi to build sustainable infrastructure, this Green Highway is fully saturated with healthy flowering plants throughout the stretch.

It is also considered to be one of the safest highways in Punjab and stimulates socio-economic development in the region.
