Delhi-Amritsar-Katra Expressway: To fulfill the long-standing demand of the people of Punjab, the Modi government has announced new connectivity to Amritsar from Nakodar via Sultanpur Lodhi, Khadoor Sahib, Goindwal Sahib, as part of the Delhi-Amritsar Expressway.
With this expressway, the time to travel from Amritsar to the national capital’s Indira Gandhi International Airport would reduce to around four hours from the current time of nearly eight hours, PTI reported. An amount of Rs 25,000 crore would be invested for the construction of the first phase of the expressway. According to the Road, Transport and Highways Minister Nitin Gadkari, the proposed expressway will connect the holy cities of five gurus of Sikhism.
Also, according to the Union Minister, the road from Amritsar to Gurdaspur would be fully developed and will be made signal-free.
