Construction of a ring road in Ranchi, Jharkhand, is set to take off soon
after the monsoon. The ring road is expected to ease traffic snarls in the city.
The Jharkhand government will also take up road construction work connecting the
outskirts of Ranchi i.e. Kathi Tand (near Ratu on Ranchi-Daltonganj highway) and
Karma (on Ranchi-Ramgarh road). This will help reduce heavy traffic on both the
streets, as buses and trucks plying on Ranchi-Daltonganj, Ranchi-Gumla and
Ranchi-Ramgarh routes will not enter the city.
The 23-km stretch of the ring road will pass through Kanke. The government will
spend Rs 135 crore on the project. Tenders for the project have been invited and
technical bids will be opened shortly.
