Road problems in city, state to be resolved soon: Bawankule

Mansar Toll Post to be shifted to Khavasa border

Nagpur: Guardian Minister Chandrashekhar Bawankule on Monday said that problems regarding roads in city and across the state would be resolved soon. A decision on completing several half finished road projects has been arrived at after meeting Union Minister Nitin Gadkari in Delhi.

Bawankule was speaking at a press conference held at Maharashtra Bhavan in national capital.


“A meeting with Gadkari was held at Parivahan Bhavan on Monday. The meeting reviewed the road projects in the state. The meeting was attended by Ramtek MP Krupal Tumane, Shiv Sena MP Vinayak Raut, MLA Mallikarjun Reddy, BJP Leader Vikas Totade, and officials,’ Bawankule said.

Mansar Toll Post:

It was decided that the Mansar Toll Post should be excluded from Nagpur Metro Region Development Authority (NMRDA). This toll post will now be shifted to Khavasa border. The move will extend a great relief to devotees visiting Ramtek as well as farmers. Similarly, the Patansawangi Toll Post will be shifted to Betul, Bawankule said.

Mahalaxmi Mandir Koradi:
The meeting pondered over problem of accidents taking place at Koradi Mahalaxmi Temple area. Taking serious view, Gadkari directed the officials to initiate adequate measures at accident spots. Similarly, marking of the accident spots on Nagpur-Saoner-Chhindwara National Highway should be done at the earliest. “A flyover will be constructed at the spot to lessen accidents,” the meeting decided.

National Highway till Zero Mile:
Several National Highways such as Nagpur-Bhandara, Nagpur-Katol-Saoner, Dhapewada-Ramtek-Tumsar pass through Nagpur. Therefore, along these National Highways the other National Highways that pass through other cities of the state should be extended till the centrally located part (Zero Mile) of the cities. Currently, National Highways are being built till the limits of cities and further work was being carried out by civic bodies. But now, the National Highways should be constructed till the central part of the city, Gadkari asked the officials.
