PM Modi lays foundation stone for several Infra projects worth Rs 6,100 cr in Telangana


 Prime Minister Narendra Modi laid foundation stone for several infrastructure development projects in Telangana worth around Rs. 6,100 crore.

Speaking at the launch, he said the projects will significantly benefit the people of the state.

Modi laid the foundation stone for 176 km long National Highway projects worth over Rs. 5,550 crore.

The projects include 108 km long Mancherial – Warangal section of Nagpur-Vijayawada Corridor. The section will reduce distance between Mancherial and Warangal by around 34 km, thus reducing travel time and decongesting traffic on NH-44 and NH-65.

He also laid foundation stone for upgradation of the 68 km long Karimnagar – Warangal section of NH-563 from existing two lane to a four-lane configuration.

This will help in improving connectivity to Hyderabad-Warangal Industrial Corridor, Kakatiya Mega Textile Park and SEZ at Warangal.

The Prime Minister also laid the foundation stone of the Railway Manufacturing Unit in Kazipet. To be developed at a cost of over Rs. 500 crore, the modern manufacturing unit will have enhanced Rolling Stock manufacturing capacity.

It will be equipped with latest technology standards and facilities such as Robotic Painting of Wagons, State-of-the-art Machinery and Plant with modern material storage and handling.

The Unit will help in local employment generation and development of ancillary units in nearby areas.

Telangana Governor Dr Tamilisai Soundararajan, Union Minister for Road & Transport and Highways Nitin Gadkari, Union Tourism Minister G Kishan Reddy were present on the occasion.
