When did I say it?
I said Saudi Arabia has no issue with land they don't have to think much for big Projects.
Ya'll Nibbiars this airport is of similar is size to the JIA and CSAIA at pune. The thing is they gone much bolder than us. And despite half in land size the NMIA airport will have similar capacity to the JIAs.
so the land size is not the determent here.

Their country is basically a desert so there is no issue of land.
Ya'll Nibbiars so according to your statement jewar is non-existence. And pune is not in making.

West Bengal: Four Greenfield Expressways In Pipeline To Improve Logistics Efficiency Of East India

1. Kharagpur-Burdwan-Moregram Expressway


The 230-km-long greenfield expressway starts from NH-16, near Kharagpur and ends at Morgram (NH-34 & NH-60 Junction) in the state of West Bengal. The 4-lane expressway will be built into five packages, at an estimated cost of Rs 12,000 crore. The tenders for the project road shall be floated by December 2022.

2. Gorakhpur-Siliguri Expressway

The 519-km-long greenfield expressway runs from Gorakhpur in Uttar Pradesh to Siliguri in West Bengal via Bihar. Around 84 km of this four-lane expressway would pass through Gorakhpur, Deoria and Kushinagar districts in Uttar Pradesh before entering Bihar. t will pass through West Champaran, East Champaran, Sitamarhi, Madhubani, Supaul, Araria and Kishanganj before reaching Siliguri.

The National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) has finalised the alignment for the expressway and work tender for the project shall be awarded in the next year. The expressway, once operationalised will provide a direct link for out bound traffic from Northeast region towards northern India including the national capital, Punjab and Haryana.


3. Varanasi-Kolkata Expressway
The 610-km-long greenfield expressway has been planned under Bharatmala Pariyojna (BMP) Phase-2 to provide high-speed connectivity to the northern and eastern regions of the country.
Starting at the junction of NH-19 and Varanasi Ring Road, the access-controlled expressway passes through Bihar and Jharkhand, before terminating at NH-16 near Uluberia in Howrah district in West Bengal.


Representative Route of  Varanasi-Kolkata Expressway


At present it takes at least 12 to 13 hours to cover 644 km between Varanasi and Kolkata via NH-2 (Golden Quadrilateral Road). The Varanasi-Kolkata expressway which will run parallel to NH-2 will reduce the travel time to 7-8 hours. Construction of this expressway is set to commence in January 2023, as the work order will be allotted by next month.


4. Raxaul-Haldia Expressway
The 700-km-long greenfield expressway starts at Raxaul on Indo-Nepal border in Bihar and terminates near Haldia port in West Bengal. Passing through Jharkhand, the expressway will cross Asansol, Durgapur and West Midnapore districts in West Bengal, and will be connected to Kolkata.

Representative Route of Raxaul-Haldia Expressway


The Rs 35,000 crore project will criss-cross Kharagpur-Burdwan-Moregram and Varanasi-Kolkata expressway, near Ramjivanpur village in West Midnapore district, thereby providing seamless interchange across all three expressways. The four greenfield expressways, once ready, will facilitate direct and indirect employment to lakhs of people and will change the physical face of West Bengal. These expressways will unlock the state's potential and kickstart the industrial development of the state.

There was a plan to set up ORR for Kolkata back in 2006 under the Left Govt. Now it seems to be covered under various National Highway Projects :
  • Haldia-Panskura : Already Done with NH 116+Nh16.
  • Panskura-Arambagh-Bardhaman: Will be covered under Proposed Kharagpur-Siliguri ( Moregram) Economic Corridor.
  • Krishnanager-Bongoan-Basirhat: Will be covered under 4 lane NH 312 ( Jalangi-Barishat ) Highway.

The only gaps remaining are :
  • Basirhat-Canning
  • Canning-Raichawk-Haldia
  • Bardhaman-Nawadwip-Krishnanger

These gaps are currently connected through 2-lane State Highways which needs to be upgraded to NH level Standard.

Bongoan (Petrapole) & Bashirhat (Ghojadanga) are two important Indo-Bangla Border Crossings.
Canning : Gateway to Sunderbans ( Royal Bengal Tiger Reserve and World largest mangrove forest).
Richowk : An riverside resort area for weekend gateways and villas.
Halida : Important Ports:
Nawadwip: Famous for Nawadwip dham ( Religious Site)
Krishnanager: Important Historial Town famous for Krishnanager Rajbari (My father's hometown)

As you can see this ORR covers very important areas for International trade, seaport, tourism and religious sites.

Out of Top 4 Kolkata is the only one missing ORR. I think they should start the remaining section work and make it as access control. Also don't forget to construct service roads.

Amazon India on Thursday announced its first wind-solar hybrid projects in India, marking a big shift to clean energy. The two projects with a capacity of 300 MW will be based in Madhya Pradesh & Karnataka, and once operational, will produce 1163 gigawatt hours of clean power.

how did they arrive at this 1163 gwh number?

Are there any greenfield rail lines under construction other than DFCs !?

What do folks expect from tier 3 station anyway.
Also it depends on the renovation budge authorized by the IR. If the reno budget was small and minuscule to begin with, then that is all you can expect for that level of renovation. If it was more, then we need to investigate whether there was corruption involved and we should have gotten a better renovation or not.
