Prime Minister Narendra Modi will visit Bulandshahr in UP and Jaipur in Rajasthan on 25 January to inaugurate and lay the foundation stone of multiple projects related to rail, road, oil and gas, and urban development and housing.
At around 5:30 pm, the prime minister will welcome French President Emmanuel Macron in Jaipur. PM Modi and President Emmanuel Macron will visit various places of cultural and historical significance in the city, including Jantar Mantar and Hawa Mahal.
During the programme in Bulandshahr UP, PM Modi will dedicate to the nation the 173 km long double line electrified section between New Khurja - New Rewari on Dedicated Freight Corridor (DFC) by flagging off goods trains from the two stations through video conferencing.
This new DFC section is important as it establishes crucial connectivity between the Western and Eastern DFCs. Further, this section is also known for its remarkable feat of engineering.
It has a ‘one km long double line rail tunnel with high rise electrification,’ the first of its kind in the world. This tunnel is designed to seamlessly operate double-stack container trains. This new DFC section will help in improving the operation of passenger trains due to the shifting of goods trains on the DFC track.
The prime minister will also inaugurate the fourth line connecting the Mathura - Palwal section and Chipiyana Buzurg - Dadri section. These new lines will improve the rail connectivity of the national capital to Southern, Western and Eastern India.
Additionally, he will inaugurate multiple road development projects including Aligarh to Bhadwas four-laning work package-1 (part of the Aligarh-Kanpur Section of NH-34); widening of Meerut to Karnal border via Shamli (NH-709A); and four laning of Shamli-Muzaffarnagar section of NH-709 AD Package-II.
These road projects, being developed at a cumulative cost of more than Rs 5000 crore will improve connectivity and help in the economic development in the region.
During the programme, the prime minister will also inaugurate Indian Oil's Tundla-Gawaria Pipeline. Built at a cost of about Rs 700 crore, this 255 km long pipeline project has been completed well ahead of the scheduled time.
The project will help transport petroleum products from Tundla to Gawaria T-Point of the Barauni-Kanpur Pipeline with pumping facilities at Mathura and Tundla and delivery facilities at Tundla, Lucknow and Kanpur.
The prime minister will also dedicate to the nation ‘Integrated Industrial Township at Greater Noida’ (IITGN). It has been developed in line with the Prime Minister’s vision of integrated planning and coordinated implementation of infrastructure connectivity projects under PM-GatiShakti.
Built for Rs 1,714 crore, the project is spread over 747 acres and is located near the intersection of Eastern and Western Dedicated Freight Corridors with the Eastern Peripheral Expressway to the south and the Delhi-Howrah broad gauge railway line to the east.
IITGN’s strategic location ensures unparalleled connectivity as other infrastructures for multi-modal connectivity are present in the vicinity of this project - Noida-Greater Noida Expressway (5 km), Yamuna Expressway (10 km), Delhi Airport (60 km), Jewar Airport (40 km), Ajaibpur Railway Station (0.5 km) and New Dadri DFCC Station (10 km). The project marks a significant step towards fostering industrial growth, economic prosperity, and sustainable development in the region.
During the programme, the Prime Minister will also inaugurate the renovated Mathura sewerage scheme including the construction of a sewage treatment plant (STP) at a cost of about Rs 460 crore.
This work includes the construction of 30 megalitres per day (MLD) STPs at Masani, the rehabilitation of an existing 30 MLD at Trans Yamuna and a 6.8 MLD STP at Masani, and the construction of 20 MLD TTRO plant (Tertiary Treatment and Reverse Osmosis Plant). PM Modi will also inaugurate the Moradabad (Ramganga) sewerage system & STP works (Phase I).
The project built at a cost of about Rs 330 crore, consists of 58 MLD STP, about 264 km sewerage network, and nine sewage pumping stations for pollution abatement of the Ramganga River at Moradabad.
