Union Transport Minister suggests ropeway, cable car and sky buses over Upper Lake in Bhopal

Bhopal, India (Urban Transport News): Union Minister for Transport and Highways, Nitin Gadkari, has proposed the implementation of a ropeway, cable car, and sky buses over Upper Lake in Bhopal. During the foundation stone-laying ceremony for 15 national highway road projects spanning 498 km at Lal Parade ground, Gadkari suggested that the Mohan Yadav government submit a proposal for these innovative transportation modes, ensuring support from his ministry.

Speaking about various road projects, Gadkari expressed confidence that the road network in Madhya Pradesh would soon match that of the United States. He highlighted the demand for Malwa wheat in countries like Abu Dhabi, emphasizing the benefit of an efficient road network for wheat export.

Gadkari also mentioned an ongoing ropeway project between Ujjain railway station and Mahakal temple, with the tender process for the Rs 171 crore project expected to be completed next month. He confirmed the government's commitment to all 27 projects in Madhya Pradesh, assuring that tenders for them would be issued shortly.

The minister announced the launch of green express highways worth Rs 50,000 crores in Madhya Pradesh and the construction of an economic corridor between Bhopal and Kanpur at an estimated cost of Rs 12,000 crores. This six-lane road, spanning 440 km, aims to reduce travel time from 15 hours to 7 hours between the two cities.

Gadkari informed about the ongoing Bhopal-Sagar project, set to be completed by the end of 2024 at a cost of Rs 4,000 crores, and the Sagar-Kanpur corridor with an Rs 8,000 crore investment. He mentioned the progress of the Delhi-Mumbai expressway passing through Madhya Pradesh, with the 245 km stretch in the state expected to be completed by December this year.

Additionally, the minister announced plans for a second highway between Indore and Hyderabad at a cost of Rs 18,000 crores and the construction of the Ujjain to Gharot Green expressway at a cost of Rs 2,700 crores.

Chief Minister Mohan Yadav praised Gadkari's ideas and highlighted the significant impact these road construction projects, totaling Rs 10,000 crores, would have on the state. The foundation stone was laid for 15 projects, including road widening, construction, and bypasses in various districts of Madhya Pradesh.
