Union Minister for Road Transport and Highways, Nitin Gadkari, announced the construction of a new parallel road from Sankhali-Chorla-Belagavi after chairing a review meeting of ongoing national highway works in the State on Saturday.

The state of Goa has proposed that the Central government construct a parallel road to connect Belagavi from Sanquelim via Khanapur to protect the environment. Union Minister for Road Transport and Highways, Nitin Gadkari, has requested the state to submit a detailed project report (DPR) for the construction of this road via Chorla, according to Chief Minister Pramod Sawant, who also holds the Public Works Department (PWD) portfolio.

There has been a long-standing demand to expand the Sanquelim to Belagavi road due to the increase in traffic. Sawant stated that instead of expanding the stretch to a four-lane road, the construction of a parallel road would resolve the issue while also protecting the environment. “If we obtain forest clearance, then the work will commence,” he added.

Sawant mentioned that the construction of the national highway from Anmod to the sugar factory and Khandepar would begin soon, and the Karnataka stretch would also be completed.

  1. Can we get half decent roads in Goa? We don’t need more highways brining in more disgusting domestic tourists, we need good roads for us in Goa..

  2. Disgusting tourist from there also visit Belgaum, not to be forgotten.. So overall roads should be proper. Matter is not about crowd, it’s about roads..

  3. Goa is no longer a preferred holiday location…it’s become a drunkards destination. There is a lot of attitude the locals show, and the tourists are a harassed lot, by the tourism industry. Decent crowds prefer other locations, within and outside the country.

  4. Thank you to all …but please complete as soon as possible…there absolutely no good conectvities between goa and belagavi

  5. Goans are thriving in the tourism,If at all the union govt.wants to improve the logistics let them improve the railway infra.and better connectivity.By building one more NH would spell doom on the already fragile western ghats ecosystem.

  6. Don’t disturb the forest
    Mangoes are already seen on trees as their climate is disturb
    They don’t have one year calendar so that they can produce fruit in May
    They just feel the environment and in winter it’s hot so they started flowering and some are also having
    This is best biological indicator of global warming

  7. गोवा वासी ध्यान रखें कि आपका अर्थ तंत्र देशी पर्यटकों पर ही निर्भर है विदेशी सिर्फ फोटो खिंचवाने में ही ठीक है बाकी खर्चा सिर्फ देशी खर्च करते हैं जिससे आपका जीवन यापन होता है, आप जो बोलते है वो घमंड दर्शाता है
