After dedicating the 1.69km-long Butibori flyover worth ₹70 crore to the public on Thursday, Union Minister Nitin Gadkari announced the construction of a six-lane (which is currently a four-lane highway) Nagpur-Butibori highway in next six months.
Apart from that, he also announced the extension of Nagpur Metro rail till Takalghat.
The Butibori flyover was stalled for sometime after the Bombay High Court had stayed the construction of the same. Gadkari said the stay led to delay in construction that in turn led to increase in road accidents.

Taking to twitter, Yadav wrote, “Poora Nagpur bol raha hai, Shubman Gill ab toh dekh le.”
