Besides, Gadkari will perform the Bhoomipujan of economic corridor as part of Bharatmala project.

According to sources, once the bypass is constructed, the residents of the area will be relieved of traffic gridlocks.

The work of the 9.607-km bypass may begin in March. The higher authorities of the state and those of the Central Government had been making efforts to get approval for the work since 2017. The project was approved in 2021.

According to official sources, the work for the project will soon begin.

The residents of Harpalpur have sent several complaints about the problem. Keeping that in mind, Union minister Virendra Kumar and legislator Neeraj Dikshit put up the demand before the Lok Sabha.
