PM Modi dedicates newly constructed Multi-Modal Terminal in Varanasi to the nation, along with other developmental projects

Prime Minister Narendra Modi dedicated to the nation two important national highways and an inland waterways terminal on river Ganga at Varanasi in Uttar Pradesh today.

The total length of the two highways is 34 kilometers and has been built at a cost of around 1572 crore rupees. An official release stated the  16.55 kilometer Varanasi Ring Road Phase-I has been completed at a cost of over 759 crore rupees, while  17.25 kilometer  Babatpur-Varanasi road was built at a cost of over 812 crore rupees.

 

The Babatpur Airport highway will connect Varanasi to the airport and go on to Jaunpur, Sultanpur and Lucknow. With a flyover at Harhua and a road over bridge at Tarna, it will cut the travel time from Varanasi to the airport. This will make a big relief to the people of Varanasi and to tourists and other visitors to the city. These projects will also offer increased employment opportunities, development of small and medium industries and give a boost to economic development in the area.

Prime Minister also dedicated to the nation an inland waterways terminal on river Ganga in Varanasi. This is the first of the four multi modal terminals being built on River Ganga as part of the World Bank aided Jal Marg Vikas project of the Inland Waterways Authority of India. The other three terminals are under construction at Sahibganj, Haldia and Gazipur.
