Nitin Gadkari approves Rs 6728.33 crore for the construction of 8 stretches of 305.50 Km National Highway- 913 in Arunachal Pradesh

Union Minister for Road Transport and Highways, Shri Nitin Gadkari in a post said in Arunachal Pradesh, an allocation of Rs. 6728.33 crore has been granted for constructing 8 stretches on NH-913 (Froniter Highway) as Intermediate Lane Road, spanning 305.50 Km on EPC mode.

Shri Gadkari said, this development aims to enhance connectivity to border areas, fostering socio-economic progress. The Frontier Highway construction is anticipated to curb migration, encouraging reverse habitation towards Arunachal Pradesh’s border regions. Furthermore, these frontier highway stretches will establish crucial road infrastructure linking significant river basins, facilitating the development of numerous hydropower projects in the state.

He 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.
