Gurugram, Nov 2 : To expand the infrastructure network in Haryana, work on Section A of the Orbit Rail Corridor with the Kundli-Manesar-Palwal (KMP) Expressway is expected to begin soon, which will benefit the Manesar industrial area, said officials.
It is estimated that Rs 5,618 crore will be spent on this project.
Union Railway Minister Ashwini Vaishnav and Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar will attend a 'Bhoomi Pujan' event for the construction of Section A of the Project near Pataudi Road Toll Plaza of KMP in Gurugram on November 3.

Gurugram Deputy Commissioner Nishant Kumar Yadav said that the Haryana Orbital Rail Corridor will accelerate the pace of development not only in Manesar but in the surrounding areas also.
"Development will also accelerate in the surrounding rural areas. This will create new employment opportunities. The government is trying to complete the project within the stipulated time," he said.
