Governor Shiv Pratap Shukla today took detailed information about various projects of the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI), especially the Kiratpur-Nerchowk, Pandoh-Takoli and Takoli-Kullu highway projects, which will be completed soon and dedicated to the nation by the Prime Minister.

“The project will reduce distance by 37 km and save around three hours of travel time. Motorists on the Kullu-Manali-Keylong-Rohtang route will benefit from it,” he added.
