Centre gives its nod to Delhi-Chandigarh express highway
 

Gurgaon: The Centre on Sunday said that it would consider a demand by the Haryana government to build an express highway between Delhi and Chandigarh at an estimated cost of Rs 8,000 crore.

The Union government would earnestly consider the ambitious Rs 8,000-crore project of the express highway from Delhi to Chandigarh along the river Yamuna.

Besides this, the transport ministry is also considering the state government's request to convert eight state roads into national highways.

However the road transport minister was responding to a request made by Haryana CM Bhupinder Singh Hooda's request at a foundation stone-laying function of the four-laning of the Rohtak-Panipat section of National Highway-71 A at Gohana.

The 81-kilometre-long four-laning project would cost more than Rs 800 crore and is likely to be completed by October, 2013.
