Nagpur: The state-of-the-art design of upcoming Futala Lake Link Road is out and Nagpurians just can’t keep calm! The 37 seconds clip released by the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways and PWD NH Division Nagpur shows widening of the existing 10 meter road to 24 meter.
T AND T ALTIS JV has been awarded the contract of the multi-crore project conceptualized by Union Minister for Road Transport and Highways Nitin Gadkari.
The video gives a glimpse of how elegant one would feel while travelling to Futala Lake from Campus Square. The splendid display of modern architecture adheres to the greenery of Nagpur city as several trees and saplings accompany commuters taking this avenue.
