State Govt Approves ₹106 Cr For Expansion Of Kanderbera-domuhani Rd, ET Infra


JAMSHEDPUR: The state government has approved Rs 106 crore for converting the 7.996km double lane Kanderbera-Domuhani Road into a four-lane stretch.

Constructed in 2019, the road connects the Ranchi-Jamshedpur National Highway (NH-33) in Chandil (Seraikela-Kharsawan) with Domuhani bridge in Sonari (Jamshedpur). Over 10,000 vehicles, including multi-axel goods vehicles, ply on the stretch daily.

The executive engineer of the road construction department (Seraikela-Kharsawan division), Ganesh Ram Hembram, said the work would start after the RCD floats the tender and awards the contract for the job.

Applauding the move, a Bagunnagar resident and employee of Tata Motors ancillary unit in Chandil, D Tarkeshwar (43), said, “Manouvering the Kanderbera-Domuhani Road is a demanding task, especially during office hours. Making the road a four-lane one would definitely help ensure smooth vehicular movement.”

Vegetable trader Bhakto Das said, “Vehicles transporting vegetables from Chandil and surrounding areas to Sonari and Kadma markets often get stuck in jams on the Kanderbera-Domuhani Road. Hence, widening the road would ease the traffic flow.”

Meanwhile, the stretch is being repaired at a cost of Rs 30 lakh. The work would be completed by the end of the month, Hembram added.

Commuters take the Kanderbera-Domuhani Road to enter the Steel City and Adityapur and and exit from these two cities to avoid the traffic snarls on the Chandil-Paridih stretch on the NH-33.
