Centre Sanctions Rs 169.27 Crore For Nabarangpur Bypass In Odisha

The Union government has sanctioned Rs 169.27 crore for the construction of a bypass to Nabarangpur town on National Highway No-26 in Odisha, announced Union Road Transport & Highways Minister Nitin Gadkari on his Twitter handle.

According to Gadkari, the project covers a distance of 9.124 km and will be completed under the Engineering, Procurement, and Construction (EPC) mode.

Incidentally, Gadkari’s announcement comes two days after Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik wrote to him for the early completion of the Cuttack-Angul-Sambalpur section of NH-55 in the state.

“It is a matter of great concern that even after more than five years, work on the four-lane carriageway is yet to be completed,” Naveen said in his letter.

Moreover, Chief Mister wrote that NH-55 serves as a lifeline to millions of people in western Odisha and haphazard construction activities have led to frequent accidents.

“Progress of the instant project is being reviewed with the regional authorities of NHAI at regular intervals but no satisfactory outcome is visible,” he added.
