Gadkari highlighted the ongoing investments, noting that Uttarakhand currently receives Rs 1.40 crore for road infrastructure, with an additional Rs 60 crore soon to be added. This brings the total investment to Rs 2 lakh crore. Speaking alongside Chief Minister Pushkar Singh Dhami, Gadkari affirmed, "By 2024, Uttarakhand's national highways will meet global standards, akin to those found in the US."

Under Gadkari's leadership, Uttarakhand's national highway network has witnessed significant expansion, growing from 2,517 km in 2014 to 3,608 km today.

Chief Minister Dhami expressed gratitude for the long-awaited projects initiated in Tanakpur and lauded Gadkari's proactive approach in their realization.

The unveiled projects promise to enhance connectivity in the Manaskhand region and contribute to the overall development of Uttarakhand's infrastructure.
