    One project that deserves to be profiled on this eloquently created website is Amritsar-Jamnagar Expressway. It’s a mega infra project which is silently albeit slowly chugging ahead, surprisingly though, somehow our infra-enthusiasts aren’t much into reporting it. So, what say? This project definitely makes the cut as it’ll have a huge impact in exploiting our northwestern sun-kissed land locked frontiers and bring a multi-dimensional change to the industrial scene in those secluded spaces. Also, it is pertinent to mention here that this project is lengthier than the DME.

      Thanks for the suggestion! That project is on my backlog of information pages to create. I first need to wrap my head around its civil packages. Due to other commitments, I haven’t had the time to explore.

      Do you have a list of packages? If so, shoot me an email. That would be very helpful and get me started 🙂

    Very few have idea on elaborate hard work required pre bidding and executing such projects. Great work is being done under leadership of Road Transport Minister Shri Nitin Gadkari. Till date no minister in this portfolio was so much progressive. Hats off to him and his team.
