Bihar CM Nitish Kumar approved alignment of a two-lane state highway from Mansi (in Khagaria district) to Hardi-Chaughara (in Supaul district) to provide better road connectivity in the state’s most interior riverine part that exists in the bordering area of Khagaria, Saharsa and Begusarai districts. Major part of this riverine area remain submerged in flood waters for more than six months every year.

The approved highway would be constructed at an estimated cost of Rs 1,400 crore and it would have four major bridges on Bagmati, Katyayani, Kosi and dead Kosi rivers; the state road construction department’s (RCD) principal secretary Amrit Lai Meena told TOI this evening.

He said CM Nitish Kumar, accompanied by the RCD minister Nand Kishor Yadav, chief secretary Deepak Kumar and Meena himself, took an aerial survey of the riverine area on Thursday afternoon and closely observed the region where from the above-mentioned four major rivers cross.

After inspecting the riverine region, the CM approved the state highways’ alignment. He also asked the RCD officials to begin construction work on the road and its four bridges as early as possible, Meena said.
