Nitin Gadkari: For your information, let us tell you that now Road Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari is looking towards the sky. After building roads and expressways on land, their next goal is to move people through the sky.
Gadkari has started exploring air routes to such inaccessible places. Where it is not possible to go by road. And walking is difficult. He has made a budget of Rs 1.25 lakh crore for the next five years.
Gadkari has set a target of building 200 ropeway projects across the country under the Parvatmala project. This program is also part of the National Ropeway Development Programme. It will be ready in five years and the project is estimated to cost around Rs 1.25 lakh crore.
Gadkari said that funds for this will come from the government and private companies. Public-Private Partnership (PPP) will implement the scheme.
Ropeways will be built in cities also
Gadkari says. That apart from promoting tourism in hilly areas, the ropeway system can ease transportation in urban areas. I fully believe that construction of ropeway can be an important measure to increase tourism in the country as well as generate employment and ease traffic.
biggest event in the world
Gadkari said that the world's largest ropeway project will be built in India, which will be about 1,200 km. Actually, 30% of the country is covered with mountains and forests. Due to which construction of roads and railways is difficult. Ropeway is its alternative.
Many important programs are going on right now
Gadkari said that work is going on on many difficult projects. This includes difficult mountain passes like Kedarnath, Badrinath and Hemkund Sahib. Kedarnath ropeway will be 10 km long and its height will be 3,600 meters. This trolley will have the capacity to carry 3,600 people an hour. Apart from building ropeways in hilly areas, the country's first urban ropeway is also being built. This four kilometer long project is being built in Varanasi. Currently it takes one hour to complete this route. But it will be reduced to 15 minutes.
