Kaithal-Ambala national highway would be four-laned at a cost of Rs 728 crore, a state minister said today.

Expressing gratitude towards Prime Minister Manmohan Singhand UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi for approval of the project, Haryana Public Works (Buildings and Roads) Minister Randeep Singh Surjewala said that this 90-km-long national highway would especially benefit three districts of Ambala, Kaithal and Kurukshetra.

He said separate bypasses would be constructed for the towns of Kaithal, Pehowa and Ismailabad which were situated between Kaithal and Ambala.

With the approval of this project, the long-standing demand of the people of the area has been fulfilled, he said, in an official release here.

Surjewala said that for the development of Kaithal an 18-km-long separate bypass would be constructed.

Also, a corridor from Kotputli to Ambala at a cost of Rs 1300 crore would be setup which would open new business and employment opportunities for the residents of Kaithal, he added.
