Gadkari said that he was confident that with the Centre’s cooperation, Andhra Pradesh under the able leadership of Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu would become one of the top 5 progressed States in the country.

He assured on behalf of the Centre that the construction of 180-km outer ring road in Vijayawada will be taken up at a cost of Rs. 20,000 crore and said new roads for national highways extending to 1350-km would be developed in Andhra Pradesh commencing from December 2016 onwards.

The Union Minister asked Chief Minister Chandra Babu Naidu to come to Delhi with detailed projects reports and land acquisition report for the newly announced projects.
