  3. It would be a boon to the people of twin Cities if the project is completed within December 2023 as it will also help in the expansion of the twin Cities along the bypass on either sides since the service roads allow free travel along the by pass

  4. First stop the toll collection for this 2 lane. Which is unjustified. When work in progress no need to charge
