Srinagar: The government is continuously working on developing Jammu and Kashmir. The centre has allocated funds for the semi ring road project in Kashmir said the officials.
The additional funds have been allocated after little progress was reported in the project due to hassles in land acquisition, they said.
The Srinagar semi ring road project is divided into two phases.
Under the first phase, the project was terminated by the contractor due to “non-handing” of minimum 90 percent land.
“Now the additional Rs 658.41 crore have been approved for land acquisition,” the officials said.
For the phase second, the detailed project report (DPR) is under revision for change of alignment.
Under this phase, a two-way road will start at Narbal and meet in Ganderbal which is likely to cost Rs 1,195 crore in Phase-I and Rs 448 crore in Phase-II.
The road length in the Phase-I will be 34.72 kilometers and in the Phase-II 27.2 kilometers with a toll plaza at Narbal Junction.
