Type of Debate: MATTERS UNDER RULE- 377
Title: Need for expeditious construction of a bye-pass on National Highway at Moradabad, Uttar Pradesh.

SHRI CHANDRA VIJAY SINGH (MORADABAD): Moradabad is a major foreign exchange earner in Uttar Pradesh and on the main highway to Lucknow, as well as strategically located defence areas like Ranikhet. The road passes through a congested town, causing great traffic jams and delay, besides putting off potential visitors to tourist sites like Corbett National Park and Naini Tal. In view of the pollution caused by this great volume of traffic passing through town, it is imperative that the construction of the bye-pass be expedited and another one be considered linking the Kashipur road with the Dehradun-Bijnor road and the Delhi road, NH-24, so that all major traffic skirts Moradabad.
