Road Transport and Highway Minister Nitin Gadkari approved 6728.33 crore rupees for the construction of eight stretches of 305.50 kilometre National Highway-913 in Arunachal Pradesh. In a social media post on Thursday, Mr Gadkari said this development aims to enhance connectivity to border areas and foster socio-economic progress. The Frontier Highway construction is anticipated to curb migration, encouraging reverse habitation towards Arunachal Pradesh’s border regions. These frontier highway stretches will establish crucial road infrastructure linking significant river basins, facilitating the development of numerous hydropower projects in the State. The Minister said, this predominantly greenfield road will connect sparsely populated Upper Arunachal areas, ideal for tourism, projecting increased traffic due to burgeoning tourism in the future.
