Kamakhyanagar-Duburi was one of three major highway projects – with a total length of 132 km – launched by Gadkari in February 2019, entailing an investment of Rs 2,345 crore.
The other projects for which foundation stones were laid by Gadkari were — four-laning of 41.7 km Talcher-Kamakhyanagar section of NH 200/23 (new NH 53) and 39.4 km Duburi-Chandikhole section of NH 200 (new NH 53).
The projects include three bypasses, one flyover, 19 vehicular underpasses, nine major and 39 minor bridges and a 45 km service road.
Once all are completed, it will reduce traffic congestion and travel time, as a result of which operating costs of vehicles and pollution level will be reduced.
