MP – Bhopal : plan to convert four lane VIP Road into 8 lanes

Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan has said that there should be no delay in repair and maintenance of roads in the state.

The concerned agencies should complete the work within the time limit for this, he said.

Chouhan instructed to study and test the possibilities of rope-way and cable car operation on Bhopal’s Upper Lake (Bhoj Tal). This will help in reducing the traffic pressure.

He was addressing the 43rd meeting of the Board of Directors of MP Road Development Corporation Limited.

Public Works Minister Shri Gopal Bhargava, Chief Secretary Shri Iqbal Singh Bains and senior officers were present.

The Board of Directors approved the construction of 8-lane road including VIP Road from Kamla Park to Sant Hirdaram Nagar (Bhopal-Indore road), construction of roads in hybrid annuity model and use of off-budget resources for implementation of new projects and to implement them through bonds.

It is notable that under the Infrastructure Investment Trust, an initiative has been taken for executing public utility works in the state.

In this direction, the use of off-budget resources was also discussed in the implementation of various new projects.

Approval was also given to get the work of consumer fee collection done by women self-help groups on the corporation’s routes.
