InterModal Station in Nagpur will be ecological & environment friendly: Nitin Gadkari

@nitin_gadkari
Union Minister for Road Transport Nitin Gadkari has said that the InterModal Station (IMS) to be constructed by the National Highways Authority (NHAI) near Ajni railway station in Nagpur will be ecological and environment friendly. Addressing a press conference after holding a review meeting on the IMS project in Nagpur today, Mr Gadkari said, it will help in realizing the dream of a clean, pollution free and green Nagpur.
 
The first phase of this ambitious project will focus on land acquisition and rehabilitation work. The Ministry of Road Transport has allocated 1200 crore rupees for this project.  The roads, railways, metro, broad gauge metro as well as the newly proposed Nag river waterway will come together and become an intermodal station near Ajni railway station for transporting passengers seamlessly from all routes . Acquisition of some land from Railways, Irrigation Department, Food Corporation of India and Government of Maharashtra is required for this inter modal station. Mr Gadkari also directed the concerned authorities to take immediate action for the acquisition of the required land.
 
He also instructed concerned project companies to use CNG-powered machinery in the construction of the project, which will reduce the use of diesel and petrol. 
 
The project will provide employment to about 10,000 youths and will also provide food courts, retail stores and other facilities to the general public at low rates. Mr Gadkari also mentioned that the project would take two to three years to complete.
