The National Highways Authority of India has accorded approval to the Capital Region Ring Road project to be executed on the outskirts of Bhubaneswar.
Once completed, the proposed ring road will connect Nandankanan on the north, Pahala on the east, Dahuli on the south and Tamando on the west side of Bhubaneswar. It will be a 68.72-kilometer long road with a width of 60 meters. The project will be executed at a cost of Rs 1,200 crores.
The project aims to ease traffic woes of the twin cities of Cuttack and Bhubaneswar.
NHAI stated in its approval letter that the competent authority has approved the alignment of the Capital Region Ring Road for a length of 68.72 kilometres.
“It is requested to instruct the consultant for preparation of a six-lane standard proposal for the stretch and submit the same at the earliest,” the letter said.
