Title: Plan to connect Golden Temple with G.T. Road
Post by Admin on 17. Feb 2005 at 06:36


To ease traffic chaos on the road leading to the Golden Temple in Amritsar, the Punjab Government has decided to construct a 7.5-km-long elevated road connecting the Delhi-Amritsar GT Road with the Temple Complex directly.

The Rs 70-crore project is likely to take off some time in April. Negotiations between the Punjab Government and a Malasiyan company are on. “Malasiyan experts have been invited for a dialogue with the Punjab Chief Minister, Capt Amarinder Singh, and senior officers in March.

“Parleys are already on with the PJI, a Malaysian company for this purpose,” said Mr Malkit Singh, Punjab Minister for Jails and Defence Welfare Services while talking to this correspondent here on Monday.

In addition to this, the Punjab Chief Minister has also taken the issue of the construction of a road up to Gobind Dham on way to Hemkunt Sahib. “The Chief Minister has assured the Uttaranchal Chief Minister that if there was any financial problem with that state, the Punjab Government could offer funds for the purpose. The Uttaranchal Chief Minister has also been assured that a large number of Sikhs could participate in the process of the construction of the road in the form of ‘kar seva’”, said Mr Parminder Singh, General Secretary of the Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee, who was accompanying Mr Birmi.

The road between the airport and GT Road should be four-laned instead.

it will be a really big project and a great initiative indeed... traffic will be eased to a great extent... but during construction traffic problem can really worsen so proper planning should be done before starting such a big project....
