Statues of Hanuman, tiny flower gardens and fountains at regular intervals will be part of the major beautification of Ayodhya Bypass.
The National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) has approved Rs 55 crore for beautification and civil construction works for this 16 km bypass. While civil construction to upgrade the existing bypass has started at Rs 35 crore since March this year, NHAI will open the bids for beautification work on Wednesday.
“It was decided to divide two components with full government support. The progress of civil works is about 30%. The beautification work will start soon as the government is paying for it. The contractor can start work as soon it bags the project,” said an official.
The works were approved after Faizabad MP, Lallu Singh put the demand before highways minister Nitin Gadkari.
