listen to the news

The widening work of the stranded Gangotri-Yamunotri road under the Chardham All Weather Road project has now gone a step further. Due to Bhagirathi reaching an eco-sensitive area, the widening work from Dharasu to Gangotri and Dharasu to Yamunotri could not be completed. The Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) work has now been completed. The commission has submitted its report to the government. Now a committee headed by the chief secretary will take a decision in this regard.

Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) has been completed by BRO, Forest and other experts. This has suggested the environmental impact due to the project and its repair points. Along with this, widening work on the stranded road from Rudraprayag to Gaurikund will also start soon. Principal Secretary PWD and Forest RK Sudhanshu confirmed this. He said that in the next few days a committee formed under the chairmanship of the Chief Secretary will take a decision in this matter. After that, the final report will be sent to the Centre’s Ministry of Forests and Environment.

Thousands of trees under the JD of the project

Thousands of trees are under JD for the Gangotri-Yamunotri road widening project. While ecologists explain their number in thousands of thousands of euros. According to government data, about 6,000 trees have to be cut down during the widening of the Uttarkashi to Gangotri road. Five to seven thousand trees have been cut in the Yamunotri region, while about the same number more are to be cut. Here, environmentalist Suresh Bhai says that this is just a government figure, the reality is that more than two lakh trees are being sacrificed in the widening of these two roads. Most of these are deodar trees.

The road will be ten meters wide with an asphalt pavement

The distance from Dharasu to Gangotri is 124 km, while the distance from Dharasu to Yamunotri is 95 km. A total of 10 meters wide paved pavement shall be constructed throughout this portion in accordance with all-weather road standards.

Work on Roddy’s upper tunnel was also sped up

The Rodi Top road from Dharasu to Yamunotri road will be a thing of the past in the coming times. The construction work of the 4,859 km tunnel from Silkyara band to Barkot is going on at a fast pace. After the completion of this tunnel, the distance to Yamunotri will be reduced by about 26 km. 853.79 million is being invested in this project. Until now, the road is often closed in the Rodi Top area during winter snowfalls. With the construction of the tunnel, this problem will also end forever.
