Bhiwani, December 5
Chief Minister Manohar Lal, has granted administrative approval for a collaborative effort with the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways and the Railway Department in constructing new 2-lane Railway Overbridge (ROB) in Bhiwani town.
Haryana Government, in coordination with the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways, is set to facilitate the handing over of the existing 2-lane Railway Overbridge (ROB) situated at Railway RD 81/0-1 on NH-709 (Extn.) in Bhiwani Town to the Railway Department. This strategic collaboration paves the way for the construction of a new 2-lane ROB by the Railway Department.
Giving more information in this regard, an official spokesperson stated that the existing 2-lane Railway Overbridge (ROB) is in the distressed condition. In view of it the new construction is currently the need of the hour. The government has laid out essential conditions for the handover, ensuring the removal of encroachments within the Right of Way (ROW), handling future litigations for the specified stretch, and proper disposal of rainwater in the area.
The spokesperson informed that as per the Ministry’s policy dated April 23, 2015, the bypass emphasizes that a section of the National Highway bypassed by a new route would no longer be part of the National Highway network and becomes the responsibility of the State Government. As the Bhiwani Bypass is already operational, the responsibility for improvement and maintenance of the bypassed portion lies with the State Government
He further stated that after considering all these factors, the Haryana Government has decided that the existing ROB will be handed over to the Railway Department, with the condition that the department ensures adequate traffic diversion arrangements before dismantling the bridge. This collaborative effort exemplifies the commitment of the Haryana Government to robust infrastructure development and the safety and efficiency of transportation networks in the region.
The Haryana Government looks forward to the successful execution of this collaborative initiative, contributing significantly to the enhancement of transportation infrastructure in Bhiwani Town.
