Prime Minister Narendra Modi will visit Telangana on July 8 to lay the foundation for several developmental projects worth Rs 6100 in Warangal.
An statement here on Wednesday said, on July 8 at around 1045 hours, Prime Minister will reach Warangal, Telangana and attend a public programme where he will lay the foundation stone for several crucial infrastructure development projects worth around Rs. 6,100 crores.
The Prime Minister will lay the foundation for 176-km-long National Highway projects worth over Rs. 5,550 crores. 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 will also lay 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.
Prime Minister will also lay the foundation stone of the Railway Manufacturing Unit, Kazipet. To be developed at a cost of over Rs. 500 crores, the modern manufacturing unit will have enhanced Wagon 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.
It will help in local employment generation and development of ancillary units in nearby areas, the statement added.
