PM unveils ambitious transportation projects in Jammu worth INR 32,000cr

In a transformative move aimed at bolstering infrastructure and connectivity, Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated a series of ambitious development projects in Jammu on February 20. The multi-faceted initiatives, collectively valued at over INR 32,000 crore, encompass key sectors such as railway, aviation, and road.

A standout moment of the event was the laying of the foundation stone for the new state-of-the-art terminal building at Jammu Airport. Spanning an expansive 40,000 square meters, the terminal promises to redefine air travel in the region. Boasting a capacity to accommodate up to 2000 passengers during peak hours, its environmentally friendly design aligns with broader sustainability goals.

The significance of this development extends beyond enhanced air connectivity. The new terminal is poised to play a pivotal role in catalyzing tourism and trade in the region, further contributing to economic growth. It also aims to showcase the rich local culture through thoughtful design elements.

The comprehensive approach of the government towards development is evident in the wide-ranging initiatives launched during the event. Encompassing health, education, rail, road, aviation, petroleum, and civic infrastructure, this holistic strategy underscores a commitment to overall progress and welfare.

Prime Minister Modi’s visit marks a substantial investment in the future of Jammu, promising not only modern infrastructure but also cultural representation and environmental responsibility. As the projects unfold, they are expected to uplift the standard of living and quality of life for the residents of the region.
