After laying the foundation stone of 6 major road projects to the tune of Rs. 4600 crore here at Partapura near Jalandhar, Mr. Gadkari said that on the request of Punjab Government , Union Ministry has sanctioned the project as it would be in the larger interest of traders because earlier they had to use the Delhi route for trade . He also disclosed that the Union government has sanctioned 7 new national highways in Punjab, out of 24 sanctioned across the nation. To connect the semi hilly areas of Punjab with NH-1 from Phagwara, Union Minister also announced to upgrade the road between Phagwara and Hoshiarpur to the 4 lane status. Besides that, ROBs at Dakoha and Dhanowali would also be constructed in Jalandhar city to ease the traffic problem.
