    Prime Minister Narendra Modi will lay the foundation stone of nine highway projects worth 14,258 crore rupees in Bihar through video conferencing today.

This included 75 projects worth 54 thousand 700 crore rupees, of which 13 projects have been completed, work is underway at 38 while others are in DPR, Bidding or Sanction stage.

    With the completion of these projects, all rivers in Bihar will have bridges conforming to 21st century specifications and all major National Highways will stand widened and strengthened.

    Under the Prime Minister’s package, the total number of bridges over Ganga river are going to be 17, with a lane capacity of 62. This way, on an average, there will be a bridge over rivers in the state at every 25 Kilometres.

    The Prime Minister will also inaugurate the Optical Fibre internet services where all the 45 thousand nine hundred 45 villages of Bihar will be connected through Optical Fibre Internet Service.

    This project will help in easy availability of digital services like e-Education, e-Agriculture, Tele-Medicine, Tele-law and other social security schemes to all citizens of Bihar at the click of the button.
