In a major boost for the state of Haryana, new economic corridor projects worth Rs 20,027 crore were launched in the state by Union Minister for Minister for Road Transport & Highways, Shipping and MSMEs, Nitin Gadkari.

Another project, four-laning of Punjab-Haryana Border to Jind section of NH-71 (length - 70.00 km) on EPC basis under NHDP-IV B was also inaugurated. The value of the project is Rs 857 crore. Earlier the project was planned to implement on BOT (Toll) basis. The contract was awarded to Unity Infraprojects in April 2012; however, it was terminated due to poor work performance in 2015. The contract was then awarded to Dineshchandra R Agarwal Infracon, which has executed the project. 
 
The 85.36 km two-lane with paved shoulders Jind-Karnal Highway on NH-709 worth Rs 200 crore was also inaugurated. The National Highways Authority of India, the nodal agency for road building, had awarded the contract to Gawar Constructions in September 2018 to execute the project. 
 
Apart from this, the Union Minister laid the foundation stones for various projects. The foundation stone was laid for 227 km six-lane access-controlled greenfield expressway from Ismailpur to Narnaul on NH-152D in eight packages entailing an investment of Rs 8,650 crore.

The project will also include construction of the seven km long Pataudi bypass, which will reduce congestion in Pataudi town.

These projects will ensure smooth connectivity, reduce travel time, fuels and cost, as also boost development in backward areas of the state.

The proposed Delhi-Mumbai Expressway, Trans Haryana Economic Corridor and the Gurugram-Rewari-Ateli-Narnaul will add to the development of the state. 
 
The Centre in a joint effort with the state government of Haryana will be developing industrial clusters including MSMEs, smart cities and smart villages, Khadi and Village industries alongside the expressway projects, particularly the new Delhi-Mumbai Expressway.
