Katra-Delhi 575 Km Express Road Corridor On Right Track:Dr Jitendra Singh

New Delhi, Nov 10: The survey for the construction of the ambitious Katra-Delhi  575 km long Express Road corridor has been completed and after the initial exercise conducted by Messrs Feedback Consultants Ltd, decks have been cleared for the next stage of the project & this will also be accompanied with the widening of the existing Pathankot-Jammu National Highway from four lane to six lane.

Dr Jitendra Singh said that he had placed the proposal before the Union Minister Nitin Gadkari about two years ago and he is gratified that it has been accepted and carried forward.

The new Express Road corridor may take some time to complete because of certain formalities including forest clearance etc, but when complete, it will reduce the travel time from Katra to Delhi to seven hours and from Jammu to Delhi to just about 6 hours.
